The secret to long life: whiskey and cigarettes, says a 100-year old woman

Want to live up to a hundred years old? Drink more whiskey and smoke more cigarettes. Dorothy Howe recently celebrated her 100th birthday at a pub with her friends. She has smoked about 460,000 cigarettes in her lifetime. She started smoking at the age of 16 and has 15 cigarettes a day.

While most of us believe that whiskey and cigarettes aren’t exactly what the doctor ordered, here’s what Howe told the Daily Mail: ‘I put my health down to whisky and cigarettes. I only drink when I’m out but my doctor said I wouldn’t be alive without them. I’m still alive and I can lift my elbows – it’s great. I’ve had a great life and God has treated me very well. I’ve been very lucky’
