Better than insurance:
  • Stop smoking
  • Drink less alcohol
  • Exercise every day
  • Eat more vegetables
  • Brush your teeth

"Better than insurance"
I don't think the purpose of insurance and the purpose of healthy living habits are congruent. Even if someone does everything you said, there is still a chance of getting cancer or being in a debilitating accident and the purpose of supplemental insurance is to assist with the financial complications of that. If someone wants to say "hey, you're better off investing that money and getting to the point where you have a sufficient safety net to cover a catastrophe," well, OK, that's a viable discussion. Both things are dealing with the financial ramifications of something bad happening.

The idea of "eat right and exercise and you won't get cancer" is not really a serious suggestion. Its sort of like saying "driving safely is better than having collision insurance." Yeah, people should drive safely, but it's not an either/or.

OTOH, it is a horrible idea to have collision insurance, then decide to drive recklessly. 

What sense does it make to have expensive health insurance plus supplemental health insurance (as if your health was important to you), but then smoke 2 packs a day?  Do you have insurance so you can smoke 2 packs a day?  Better off not smoking and having basic coverage.

based on the black and white logic you present in your last sentence, i take it you have never dealt with addiction.

No one is advocating anything like that. Where did I say "what are people's thoughts on supplemental insurance. . . because I'm thinking of getting it and then letting myself turn to shit"? You're making something an either/or that really isn't.

Got a gig in Philly tomorrow. Any recommendations on a spot to eat? We're staying in Center City and playing at The Dolphin.
