Hi friends in the world there are a lot of people who have some/the other bad habits. There are some people who don't have any bad habits. I would like to know that do you make friends who have the habit of Drinking, Smoking, Playing cards and etc etc. I do have some friends who smoke and drink but i keep some distance with them always coz i don't do all those things.

Most of my friends are pretty much like me as far as what they do or don't do. I have a friend who is a smoker; I don't smoke and I am okay with her habit as long as she doesn’t smoke inside my house or near my little daughter. I don't worry too much about my friends' habits as long as it's not something harmful for example I'm not a gambler and I wouldn't have a problem with any pal of mine who gambled as long as he or she wasn't destroying their life over it.

Hi rajfoe! It's best to try not to have too many friends that have bad habits so you won't be tempted to do the things that they do! But, you don't have to do what your friends do just because they do them! If you want to be friends with someone that smokes, you don't have to smoke too! And the same thing with anything else! You just have to know yourself and know what you want to do and what you don't want to do!

I DO MAKE FRIEND TO ALL You got your right points on choosing your friends with your own criteria of friend selection. That's a good practice, actually. But, about me and my world of business I can't do that way because in my offline business networking there are various kind of people with their own different habits. The main thing is growing up business. PERSONAL AND THE PERSONALITY I have to avoid intervening their private and personal life, habit, manner and their social activity. As I must abide with my business philosophy and this thing take first. At the same time, besides as friend, they are also my business product's customer, client and end user. What I found, I can make more money from understanding and entertaining my customer behavior. Customer behavior is part of business marketing plan.

Yes, I have friends who drink, smoke, play cards, dance in clubs and do other things that you don't like. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes and so it's okay that you feel the way that you do. It's also okay that I like the things that I do...which also include smoking, some drinking, and dancing in clubs from time to time. I don't play cards...but my husband does.
