I live life to maximize my own pleasure and happiness, and minimize pain, suffering, and doing without. Accordingly, I seek lots of whatever brings me pleasure: food, drink, material things, consumer goods, interactions with friends, sexual gratification, music, sports, games, gambling, recreational drug use, etc. (Note: In embracing “eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die,” hedonists ignore the following: You only get one body. How well you care for it--or don’t care for it--makes a big difference in the length and quality of your life. Those who embrace this lesson--and opt for a healthy orientation--will need to take care of their body's immediate health needs and also educate themselves as to its long-term needs.)
