I don't smoke or drink, but I do love me some cherry sours and Starbucks.

Blood pressure is "pre-hypertension", overall cholesterol is good but my tris are sky high. I'm 6'4, 218#.
Do you smoke or not? You said you don't but listed cigars first on your list.
It's hard to rank things but I'd say smoking is the worst, heavy alcohol use is probably 2nd (and by heavy I mean more than 1-2 drinks/day), and the diet indiscretions would be 3rd - that's where the high sugar, high fat issues come in.

Personally, I'm not convinced that diet soda is all that bad unless you're drinking a lot of it. I think one diet drink a day is okay. Drinking it all day long like it's water is not okay.
