14 People Admit Things They Do That They Know Are Unhealthy

We all have our vices.

Things that we know aren’t good for us and that we shouldn’t be doing.

But hey, we’re only human, right?

So don’t be too hard on yourself…

What do you do even though you know it’s unhealthy?

AskReddit users spoke up.

1. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

“Drinking soda and vaping.

I just can’t stop.”

2. Old habits.

“Bologna sandwiches for lunch too often.

Wouldn’t be so bad but I discovered how good freshly sliced bologna from the deli is compared to that nostalgic Oscar Meyer garbage I grew up with.”

3. Gotta work on that.

“Not properly recovering from workouts And sitting around too much.

Theres no in between. Im either out their running/lifting full send and then I immediately sit. Completely f**ks the body up.

Recovery is so important to the body but I just look at my couch and see how comfy it is and its all over.”

4. Come on!

“I know I should wear sunscreen when I’m going to be outside for small chunks of time, but I’m just not willing to spend all that time lathering my skin.”

5. Yikes.

“Not showering, not brushing teeth, getting Dabs constantly, binge drinking, spending hundreds online.”

6. Bad all around.

“Staying up till 4 am

Not drinking enough water

Eating unhealthy

Not exsercising.”

7. Vices.

“I drink al**hol, partake in other vices.

Obviously, officially it’s unhealthy. I get that. No one should *EVER* drink al**hol or partake in any drug/vice. That’s obvious.

But life is too short to life a boring, milquetoast lifestyle. Vices, when done in moderation, can be really fun and be a bright spot in your life!

So I know it’s unhealthy, but you bet your a** I’ll get dr**k with my friends at my wedding, or at a party. You bet your a** I’ll have a few cocktails on vacation.

It’s officially not good for humans to drink al**hol, but I don’t care. In moderation the negatives are rather mild.”

8. I’ll be in bed.

“Laying down in bed. Especially since pandemic.

Working from home = working from bed. Can’t go do anything cause it’s the 6th lock down?

You guessed it, staying in bed.”

9. Probably overdoing it.

“S**ke weed everyday. It just makes me feel lazy sometimes.

Especially when me and my girlfriend want to do something but then we get stoned and don’t wanna get out of bed.”

10. Cut out the fizz.

“Probably having a lot of fizzy drinks.

Feel as if I should cut down on them but I just don’t really like water or tea etc.

Which is probably the healthier option.”

11. Beer.


I have a great local brewery nearby and I have made a lot of friends there. I don’t drink a lot per visit, but I do visit a lot more often than I should.

I am not really a big bar person, but the social aspect is very attractive. I also spend more time on social media than I should.”

12. Turn it down.

“Listening to music with headphones and with the volume cranked up quite a bit.

I’m slowly learning to listen to music with way lower volume though.”

13. Some work to do.

“Not enough sleep/terrible sleeping schedule, constantly checking my phone, being a picky eater, bite my nails, overthink, spend money unwisely.”

14. That’s really bad.

“Text and drive.

I’m a therapist. Every day on the way to work, I text all my patients to confirm their appts.

It would take 2 minutes before I leave or after I arrive. It’s so unhealthy and dangerous.

I Have. To. Stop.”

Now it’s your turn.

Hey, we won’t judge you!
