My maternal grandfather smoked cigars and pipes and lived to be 98.
My paternal grandfather smoked cigarettes and died of complications from emphysema in his 50s. He was also crippled as he had contracted polio as a child.
The smell of cigars and pipes bring back childhood memories for me. I have enjoyed and smoked the occasional cigar, usually Macanudos, but not recently. I also occasionally smoke a cigarette.
