That part's true. Even if you don't die at 50 instead of 80, you still tend to feel like 80 at 50 if you smoke. It's a good thing not to do, all in all...unless I guess you aspire to become some sort of icon of western civilization...

Yep, My grandpa died when he was 61. He smoked cigars BUT he didn't die from smoking. He died from Silica in his lungs. We worked with sand and glass dust.

My dad smoked in WWII but he quit fast. He lit his cig after dark and a sniper shot put the cherry out. Scared the crap outta him and he never lit up again. Luckily he was standing sideways.
