I want to know exactly why Shania Twain does not smoke cigarettes,
drink alcohol, do drugs or eat meat besides the obvious health
reasons. I want to know why she has taken this stance against these
things--specifically. I really want to know the 'why' behind this
directly from her, but I can't find anyone who knows.

imagine someone who abstains from alcohol, tobacco and even, according
to some accounts, non-procreative sex, would then go use heroin or

I hope this answer was what you were looking for.

Please note that the sex thing is a rumor of supermarket-tabloid
variety and not something official from Twain herself. See the
