"Everyone used to smoke in those days, you did it to cope. We didn't know about the health problems. I just don't fancy it any more," Mrs Langley told the Daily Mail. "My eyesight is failing so in a few years' time I might not be able to see the pack."

Mrs Langley's step-grandson Clive said, "Her doctors have told her there's not much point stopping now. If she's got to 102 without getting cancer I don't think she ever will."

The lady claims she averted cancer despite smoking five cigarettes a day by not inhaling the smoke. By her own account, she has smoked 170,000 cigarettes till now.

I am m/74/Pakistan. I have completed 51 years of continous smoking. Before that it was on/off with smoking. I do not suffer from any visible or detectable ill effects like cough, short breath etc. I did have Angina-Pectoris ( Heart ailment) 27 years ago which does not bother me much.
I am taking one clove (1 part out of 20-25 pieces) of Raw natural Garlic once a day with breakfast. It keeps not only lungs clear ( no cough, flu,fever etc) but also controls my blood pressure ( keeps it low).
Smoke about 25-30 cigarettes a day. Love green vegetables.
Good Luck).
