Lessons Part 1

Things I've learned to do to have a healthy life. Taught by the numerous patients in the ED

1. Don't become an alcoholic
Unless you hate you liver, love the color yellow and want to puke blood.

2. Don't be a smoker
Unless you want to look 75 when you're 55 or enjoy COPD/lung cancer/O2 machines.

3. Don't get old
Yes, this is unavoidable. But a major cause of problems

4. Wear your seatbelt
Unless you enjoy superman-ing out of your windshield

5. Don't ride motorcycles
There is no good way to crash one and you will do major damage. On the plus side you may be a great organ donor.

6. Don't get fat
Hypertension and diabetes suck. HTN can give you a stroke and DM can kill your kidneys

7.  Don't play Russian Roulette
You have a 1 in 6 chance of shooting yourself, this chance increases if you have been drinking with your buddies.
