```I am have trouble figuring out how to make my program stop at 0 hit
points.... if I run it, it always goes into the negative hitpoints...

So my question is how do I make this program end at exactly 0 hit points
every time instead of going over?

and also, what can I do instead of writing print so many times?

import random
my_hp = 50
mo_hp = 50
my_dmg = random.randrange(1, 20)
mo_dmg = random.randrange(1, 20)
while True:
if mo_hp < 0:
print "The Lich King has been slain!"
elif my_hp < 0:
print "You have been slain by the Lich King!"
if mo_hp <= 0:
break
elif my_hp <= 0:
break
else:
print "1 - Attack"
print "2 - Defend"
print
choice = input ("Enter your selection. ")
choice = float(choice)
print
if choice == 1:
mo_hp = mo_hp - my_dmg
print "The Lich King is at ", mo_hp, "Hit Points"
print "You did ", my_dmg, "damage!"
print
my_hp = my_hp - mo_dmg
print "I was attacked by the lk for ", mo_dmg," damage!"
print "My Hit Points are ", my_hp
print
elif choice == 2:
mo_hp = mo_hp - my_dmg / 2
print "The Lich King is at", mo_hp, "Hit Points"
print "you did ", my_dmg / 2, "damage!"
print
my_hp = my_hp - mo_dmg
print "I was attacked by the lk for ", mo_dmg," damage!"
print "My Hit Points are ", my_hp
print
