Or maybe you'll actually be careful with your ears through your 20's and 30's... lay off "gak" and great big swimming pools full of whiskey and not have the same extent of annoyance I seem to have gained.

i have always been very careful with my ears..i am a drummer and i am used to wearing plugs in my tinnitus was actully caused by stress......i participated in an exchange program.......visited the u.s. for a year..........horrible host family in the state of ohio......cancelled the sh$$t and went home after 1/2 a year with a ringing ear.........
