Mensagem:  Andre, to my mind to take a toll is used more,involving a long lasting process over a period of time. Just to eat one feijoada wouldn't take its toll that very day. Eating feijoada day after day would eventually take its toll. To smoke 2 packs of cigarretes for the next 20 years, will take its toll on your vocal chords and lung capacity, hence when you then perform at a karoake, you may not get as much applause as you might have hoped for.
