    well, an interesting question, but yeah it presupposes that one would want to live to 100. but for the sake of answering the question,

    lets assume that the world isn't post-appolyptical by that time, and that the sciences of health care, human genetics, nutrition, and medicine have made it easily possible to maintain a high quality of life and independence at that age.

    if the human life expectancy were extended from 80-some good years to 110 good years before serious loss of independence, comfort, and dignity- well,

    i'd give up most bad habits, or cut them back significantly. if science credibly discerned that masturbation (preposterously, i know), for example, was the only thing holding people back from living an extra 10 years, i could do without. or if consuming cooked meat was actually BAD and we could live longer by putting our appendixes back to good use, i could live off sushi. of course,

    all of this is kind of ridiculously hypothetical.... for one, no single habit could make or break one living significantly longer, all things being equal (which they're not). for another, you have to weigh out the highly individualistic values placed on things; some may cling to life and try to milk out a few extra years any way possible, while others may put more value in indulgence and enjoyment of life's guilty pleasures- sacrificing a few years here and there happily for a few nights at the bar a month, or an occasional blunt.

    in honest answer to the question, i think its all a matter of balance for me. i wouldn't sacrifice all indulgence for the sake of more life, but i wouldn't indulge myself into an early grave either.

    People have a choice as to how they will live, in this we must accept personal responsibility. We must take control of the situation if we are to improve the quality and quantity of our life. It shouldn't take research findings for people to realize that bad habits will kill them. All they really have to do is listen to their bodies.

    true, though whether or not a habit is "bad" can be up for debate... in the victorian era, masturbation was thought to consume and waste much-needed 'vital energy' that would be better served keeping you strong and healthy. ancient eastern mystical beliefs shared similar fears of 'wasting' something as magical and vital as semen on a regular basis. today, we are confident that regular masturbation is good for the prostate and helps boost the immune system. so yes, scientific findings and research does play a part in understanding the nature of habits.

    many habits are developed because we're genetically hardwired to pursue those things- like the consumption of salts and sugars, or the 'sowing of one's wild oats.' in these cases, "listening to our bodies" will only drive us to eat ourselves to death, or fuck unto multiple child care payments and STDs, as many americans do. many habits are deemed 'bad' only by societal standards of 'normalcy,' like an addiction to body modification and art. others are deemed 'bad' based on health concerns- in which case its always a matter of "too much of a good thing," the rule of health being moderation. very precious few habits (smoking, drug abuse) could be judged as thoroughly wicked and destructive....

    me either. I am going to be like my mom. She said that she was going to live to be 80. She died exactly one week after her 80'th birthday.

    The condition that many persons claim for their innocence regarding masturbation is habit, and we certainly know how difficult habits are to break. We must keep in mind, however, that habit does not completely destroy the voluntary nature of our acts..

    I'm another one of the "live fast / die young" types. I wouldn't mind getting old as long as I'm in good shape and not in pain. If it's going to hurt to get up and move around, then sorry, I'm out. Living to be 100 just sounds painful.
