(KGTV) -- We all have vices, but some are actually good for us.

That cup of coffee you’re sipping may provide more than just a jolt of caffeine. According to a story by TheListTV, a cup of joe could extend your life.

Here are three vices that Dr. Natasha Bhuyan and Kristina Guerrero suggest are good for your health.

COFFEE

In an interview with The List, an article on WebMD explains that coffee drinkers are less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Drinking coffee regularly may also lead to fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems and strokes.

CHAMPAGNE

Cheers! Drinking up to three glasses of champagne a week can help with memory loss (three glasses a week, not a day!). According to Leslie Barrie of health.com, this bubbly beverage helps your heart and will smooth your skin.
