Winnie Langley has been smoking since the 1914. I am pretty sure that the millions of cigarette tax dollars that Rob Reiner raised for anti smoking in California could buy a decent hit man. This old lady is a poster child for smokers and if Rob hears about this in between meals she’s a goner.
Winnie, from Croydon, South London, claims tobacco has never made her ill.
She has outlived a husband, Robert, and son, Donald, who died two years ago aged 72.
The former launderette worker said she started the habit in 1914 – just weeks after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on June 28 – which sparked the First World War.
The 100-year-old, who is awaiting her telegram from the Queen today, said smoking helped calm her nerves during the two World Wars.
She said: “A lot of people smoked during the war. It helped steady the nerves.”
Despite the numerous health warnings, Mrs Langley insists she’s never suffered because of the habit as she “has never inhaled”.
I knew a guy who ran 3 miles every day, never smoked a cigarette in his life and still died young. Everyone in the world knows at least one old smoker and at least one healthy non smoker who has died first. Anti smoking advocates might want to use some of those tobacco tax dollars to make examples out of people like this. From a marketing aspect this would have a much greater impact than another stupid commercial. According to conspiracy blogs there are a ton of super double secret ninja assassins out there that could be out of work soon if Hillary is elected.
