A smoker who has 10 cigars day and enjoys a whisky with his morning tea has celebrated his 100th birthday.
Mr Priestly began smoking at the age of nine, he has since smoked 153,000 cigars and 715,400 cigarettes
Jack Priestly claims he has suffered no serious health problems related to his tobacco and alcohol habit.
Mr Priestly, a widower and former baker, began smoking cigarettes when he was nine and claims to have smoked every day since.
He changed to cigars in 1966 after he said he was told they were "healthier" and celebrated his century last Saturday.

That is one stinky dude.
This guy is a Denis Leary routine. “Smoked cigars because they were healthier ? Healthier ? I ****in’ love this man !”
They taste a lot better too.
Ping to a potential patron saint.
Good to know. :-D
The Libs are gonna call for his immediate euthanasia...How much Carbon did all those cigars put out??? How many innocent people died in the searing heat of gLoBaL WArMiNg because of those cigars???? War Crimes!
5 Vegas Gold, Greycliff, Gurka, etc....
But I couldn't smoke 10 a day..!! Wow!!
Yeah but I bet he is real short.
I wonder if he can feel or taste anything with his tongue anymore...maybe the cheap scotch is for pain relief.
GREAT story. Thanks!
It must be. I remember George Burns used to joke that "They say cigars are habit-forming. Well, I've been smoking six a day for the last 65 years and I haven't picked up the habit yet."
Now that’s lungevity!
When the tobacco company heard of an 84 year old man who was smoking their brand of cigarettes since the age of ten, they got him to agree to filming a commercial endorsing their product.
They flew him out to New York, set him up in a fine hotel, and called him on the phone to schedule the filming.
They asked him how he the flight was? “Fine.”
They asked him how the hotel was? “Wonderful.”
They asked him if they could send a limousine to pick him up at 9AM tomorrow to bring him to the studio. “Nope.”
Why not? “Because I don’t stop coughing until around noon.”
"I drink a great deal. I sleep a little, and I smoke cigar after cigar. That is why I am in two-hundred-percent form.", Winston Churchill
You're in good company...
And they smell better.
