    ...it's a family tradition!
    Yeah, I guess it's a question of "how much".

    Both of my maternal grandmother's sisters - dead in their 60s and 70s, (both from cancer, IIRC)

    Dad's grandfather -dead at 57 (also from cancer, but I'm of the impression he was left a wreck of a man by his wife -whom not to much of my family is fond of- and because they were both a part of a denomination that had forbidden divorce, he had no way out of that marriage.)

    Great grandfather on mother's side -died a year before I was born, (damn shame too -I'm told he was one of the most out-going guys in my family) He had blacklung, though, and I think that's what killed him.

    So yeah, I suppose so.

    There's also David, smokes and is still upbeat to this day (I think in his late 70s, currently.)

    Additionally, it isn't that never drink, either... sometimes if I'm visiting my folks and they (usually dad) have some 100-150 proof Wild Turkey lying about, I can take a few sips of that and then I have a nice guffaw.

    I actually do a lot of things stupid for a diabetic, besides that even.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
