Lung cancer is not the only disease caused by smoking. My dad lived to be 86 but the last 20 years of his life were hell caused by disease directly related to his smoking. He had high blood pressure, COPD, emphazema, among others. He had a heart valve replaced in an emergency operation. He was on inhalers, oxygen and many drugs to combat these issues. Yes, he lived to be 86 years old but his quality of life quickly dwindled beginning in his mid-60s. So you might be able to smoke until you are 90 or 100 but no one says that you will have quality of life to those ages if you do.
