My mother died at the age of 66 back on the Fourth of July. I can confirm smoking did NOT kill her. She collapsed on the floor in her bedroom. The doctors suspected she had a heart attack. Which caused the collapse.
Some ladies think 66 is a young age to die at. I disagree. Once my mom turned 65, she joined the senior citizens club. Maybe if she died at 56, I'd call that a young age.
She smoked for 50 years. And she lived a long life to me since antismokers teach you'll die within 40 years after you start smoking. The fact she smoked for half of a century is impressive. Now she can enjoy her cigs in heaven.
