Keen to live up to 100 years old? Forget everything you thought you knew about how to survive and get schooled by Dorothy Howe, who celebrated her 100th birthday at the pub with friends.
Dorothy kicks all the latest health-food trends to the curb with her solution…drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes. She has smoked more than 400,000 cigarettes over the last 84 years and claims the whiskey tastes ‘Just as good as it used to’.
On her birthday, Dorothy told the Daily Mail: ‘I put my health down to whiskey 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…My pins aren’t as fast as they used to be, but my mind is still sharp’.
We’re not quite convinced by old Dot that booze and cigarettes are the keys to longevity. However, she’s definitely living proof that they could be the answer. Same goes for Keith Richards…
