Ebbie, that's an interesting analogy -
"An analogy here:
In the days when I smoked I first thought of it as a 'religious issue'; I was brought up in a religious atmosphere and my parents were adamantly against smoking.
Years later more information came out about the health effects of smoking and then I felt much worse about it.
Maybe if instead of telling the kids: Just say No! as to engaging in sexual activity we put the emphasis on 'Safe sex' we would accomplish more"
Could it be that we missed the 'Safe smoking' classes in school? ;-))
