As we in this country continue to come up with new anti-smoking laws like whats going on in Connecticut as Scott explained earlier, I wanna say Happy Birthday to Clara Cowell and just know it's never too late to change bad habits. At 102 years old, she finally quit smoking after picking up the habit in 1931.The astonishing thing is, she did not even quit smoking because of her health -she stopped because her family was worried that falling ash would set her house on fire.


According to The Daily Mail, lit her first cigarette in 1931, and has puffed her way through two or three a day, totaling almost 60,000. She also enjoys her daily cup of tea, with whiskey. Take that health nuts! I'm sure most people aren't this lucky.
