My looks result from the combination of genetic makeup, grooming habits, and lifestyle choices. I can tweak only the latter two factors, obviously. Do I want to? Not really. I’m too busy making the lifestyle choices oriented towards grooming my mindscape.
At the same time, though, I’m doing my best not to hurt too much the body that carries the conscious mind around. That body that I’m grateful to for doing the service so well in exchange for so little care and so much neglect.
Poisoning it with drugs and cigarettes would feel like too much ingratitude, so I don’t.
