A British woman who has finally stopped smoking after picking up the habit in 1931, has finally quit. Clara Cowell's family has encouraged her to kick the habit for years and she's finally listened. Her daughter acknowledges that healthy genes are a major factor in her mother longevity but also said:

The secret to mom's long life is a cigarette and a cup of tea with whiskey"

Her family was more worried that she would start a fire due to falling ash than the health reasons.

By the way, if you do the math, she smoked nearly 60,000 cigarettes in her life.

If you are a smoker and need two really good reasons to quit:

1. More money

2. More birthdays.
