30 cigarettes a day takes the doctor away? It doesn’t necessarily have a nice ring to it, but hey, I like the idea of it. And it obviously worked for this woman.
Batuli Lamichhane (Don’t ask me how to pronounce that) of India took up smoking in 1920 at the age of 17, and she’s still going at it 95 years later.
According to Mirror, she said “I have been smoking for over 95 years. There is nothing wrong with smoking.” And “I dont really care how old I am. But I am old nonetheless. I have seen a lot of things change during my lifetime.”
She’s even outlived almost all of her children. Her eldest son is 85 years old and has grandchildren. Her other four have passed since then.
“People of this modern age have too much stress. And those who do not work or are idle in their old age won’t live long. So you have to be active and stress free.”
That’s apparently what it takes to live to be 112. And she doesn’t look a day over 80. ; )
