My hero

You can’t help but love this story:  Centenarian celebrates her birthday by, ahem, smoking

DEFIANT smoker Winnie Langley celebrates reaching 100 yesterday — by lighting her 170,000th cigarette from a candle on her birthday cake.

She started having a puff an incredible 93 years ago aged seven — just after the First World War broke out in June 1914. She has got through five a day ever since.

Kids, please don’t take this as an endorsement for smoking. Remember, you could end up like this guy.

    Imagine how long she could live if she’d never puffed a ciggie!

    Too funny. I should add that she said she “never inhaled”.
