Quite a bit like most people I expect. It's not some rare outlook.

Yell? No. I'm very pro giving people information about harmful things and if they still decide to go along with it to welp that's their choice.

For some people, it's not as simple as "this is bad so I shouldn't," no matter how stupid their decisions may appear to outsiders.
Assuming I'm not fully aware I have an addictive personality and thus turned said addiction towards things that don't destroy my mind. I grew up with drug addicts. You're not forced (except in very rare cases) to take that first hit and there's almost always other options.

Eh growing up influenced by that is probably would colored my views.
