You already know the answer to your question, but are unwilling to take the step, even to save your health and life. This is not unusual.
We all make poor choices that affect our health every day. Exercising too much, not exercising enough. Eating too much, not eating enough. Sitting down all day, standing up all day. Eating high fructose corn syrup, eating artificial sweeteners. Too much stress. Flying in airplanes frequently (omigod cancerrrrr). Whatever.
My choice is to stay in Santiago for the next few years while my fiance finishes university. I'd rather be in Podunk, Kansas, but whatever. I'm sucking it up for a couple years. Any real advice? Because you really only seem to have 2 modes: useful advice and spiteful old fart. Get over yourself.
