Staying inside to avoid weather conditions that aggravate my asthma stalls my health in many ways. Damage done living in LA with a smoking father has not been reversed over the last 40 years.

Why would you characterize living or working in a polluted area as a "sneaky" habit? Or many of the other factors you mentioned, for that matter....
"Sneaky" means "underhanded", and I am sure lots of people who live or work where the air is not clean do not have much choice, until we address the problem, as a society.
No, I didn't wake up grumpy, this morning, trying to find any pretext to get all worked up... I have just become more sensitive to the way we induce guilt in ourselves through language... "cheating" on a diet, "sneaky" habits....
While guilt drives sales, it doesn't do much for self esteem and usually backfires. Instead of making positive changes, we seem to be more likely to adhere to the habits that make us feel guilty....
It would be nice if I could find a competent doctor. So far all they want to do is test and prescribe. After all the testing and prescribing I end up worse than I started. I've had PCOS for over 20 years, but still don't have an official diagnosis. We did thousands of dollars testing on my thyroid and then nothing was done. I say, " Find a good NATUROPATHIC doctor. They do more good for you in the long run."
Sleeping too much causes elevated blood pressure. I have to think and read more about this one. Nine hours of sleep per night is my norm...hm...hate for all the healthy I'm doing to be undone by too much sleep!
