    luxury / looseness

    Is the following wording natural and acceptable?

    Therefore, the chipmunks gain widespread fame and prestige overnight. Consequently, they live a life of luxury and looseness, which causes them always to quarrel endlessly about it.

    Re: luxury / looseness

    Then use 'self-indulgence'. 'Looseness' doesn't work.
