100 year old smoker mocks surgeon generals warning



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.
