Secret to Longevity: Start Smoking at an Early Age

You just gotta love stories like this one from London:
    An iron-lunged pensioner has celebrated her 100th birthday by lighting up her 170,000th cigerette from a candle on her birthday cake.

    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." ...

    ... Despite the numerous health warnings, Mrs Langley insists she's never suffered because of the habit as she "has never inhaled".
Aha! There's the real secret. I guess that means Bill Clinton will probably be sticking around for a little while longer.

Perhaps if you don't inhale, the smoke is a preservative.
