    Good for you, but my mean old Norwegian Mother fell over dead on her way for a smoke at 86. I think I'll keep up the tradition.

      My mom passed away new years day at 80. Man could that woman smoke, chain so fast she didn't need a lighter. But that is not what caused her death.

        I'm sorry if this sounds insensitive, not my intention, but didn't your mother have a stroke?

        My father in law had a minor stroke back in March and he has almost made a full recovery. However, the Dr told him that his 50 years of smoking was most likely the reason as to why he had the stroke and that he should probably stop or it will happen again but much worse.

          Yeah, smoking is a major cause of strokes.

            My point was I always thought she would get some sort of lung disease that would be her demise. Not smoke like a steam engine until 80 and then just have a stroke out of the blue. I honestly had no idea smoking caused strokes.
