A 112-year-old woman says smoking 30 cigarettes a day is a secret to long life. Batuli Lamichhane, born in March 1903, began smoking at age 17.

The old woman revealed smoking has being her daily habit for the past 95 years and that has helped her outlive almost everyone else in her village and her own children.

A 112-year-old woman says smoking 30 cigarettes a day is a secret to long life. Batuli Lamichhane, born in March 1903, began smoking at age 17.

 

She said: “I dont really care how old I am. But I am old nonetheless. I have seen a lot of things change during my lifetime."

Batuli's added advice on smoking is to avoid 'commercially made' cigarettes. Instead, she recommends locally made ‘beedis’ - tobacco wrapped in tendu leaf.

 

She lives alone after her husband left home eight decades ago to search for a job.

Batuli's speech is mostly incoherent, but the great grandmother manages to do her chores all by herself.

Following the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal earlier this year, the roof of her house caved in. Since then, Batuli has refused to be relocated to a relative's.

 

She lives off donations made by a local Hindu temple. The strong woman believes that there is a secret to living a long life.

"People of this modern age have too much stress. And those who do not work or are idle in their old age won’t live long. So you have to be active and stress free,” she professes.
