A Happiness Tip From Aristotle According to Aristotle - the answer should be NO.

In a way the above scenario is a description of someone who does crack or drinks into oblivion. Aristotle has a wonderful quote related to this topic: : I intuit what Aristotle was saying is that life has ebbs and flows.
