101-Year-Old Smoker Urges Others Not to Pick Up Habit

Winnie Langley was 7-years-old when she tried her first cigarette, and 94 years later she’s still smoking.

The 101-year-old said she realizes the habit is bad for her, and she has a message to spread: Lighting up is not all it’s cracked up to be, The Edmonton Sun reported.

“Don’t start, it’s just a bad habit,” Langley, from South London, told the newspaper. “I put it to my lips, and it’s a waste of money.”
