Smoker Celebrates 100th Birthday by Lighting Up

A life-long smoker, Winnie Langley just celebrated her 100th birthday by smoking her 170,000th cigarette!

Winnie Langley started smoking only days after the First World War broke out in June 1914 when she was just seven-years-old - and has got through five a day ever since.

She has no intention of quitting, even after the nationwide ban forced tobacco-lovers outside.

Speaking at her 100th birthday party Winnie said: "I have smoked ever since infant school and I have never thought about quitting.

Did you also know that kids could drive a car at age seven in certain parts of North America, if not all?

Sounds like some of you need to do your history and understand what the norm used to be. They didn't think about smoking causing any problems. The doctors would smoke for crying out loud. Don't act so stunned.

I think making it illegal for liberals to breath should be the next move. It would certainly make the world alot better than forcing laws on people that nobody (said liberals withheld) wanted.

I don't think its fair to hate all smokers because many litter, furthermore the idea that smoking is selfish is only a recent one.
I'm sure you wouldn't give up a habit of 90+ years so easily just because it became socially unacceptable.

I'm not impressed at all. Cancer should've wiped her out decades ago. Or maybe I'm bitter that my own mother died of cancer and never smoked a day in her life.
