Cancer-Stricken Patrick Swayze Reluctant To Stop Smoking - Continues 60-A-Day Cigarette Habit
You would have thought that he's learnt his lesson, but apparently old habits die very, very hard for cancer-stricken American actor Patrick Swayze. Despite the chemotherapy that ravaged his body, making him extremely frail and thin, and the conspicuous hair loss, the actor was recently seen lighting a cigarette during a shopping trip in LA.

Swayze, 56, who was slightly limping as he walked, was with his wife Lisa Niemi, 52, and a male friend.

According to reports, he is reluctant to kick the butt.

"I'll drop cigarettes when it looks like I may live longer than five minutes," the Mirror quoted him as saying.

But despite his friends saying that he is not doing so well, 'The Beast' star is positive about how his life is going.

"There are so many positive things going on in my life," he said.

"I've started new chemotherapy and again I'm one of the lucky ones with pancreatic cancer that responds well to the treatment.

"I am starting work on my new book, in addition to enjoying the fantastic response from everyone on my TV series The Beast," he added.

I have always liked Patrick as an actor especially in Dirty Dancing which is one of my most favorite movies, but in his condition he is still smoking. Tell me Patrick why are you still taking theraphy and Chemo for your condition if you don't care to give up your smoking> To me that is the most stupid thing you can be doing. What is wrong with you. Do you think that you are some muricle person that is having fun defying death???? Come on get a grip and try and come to your senses. This is stupid. 60 lousey smokes a day. Why don't you just eat the darn things for breakfast and lunch and supper. You may enjoy them better. No brains, no headaches.
