Patrick Swayze Won’t Quit Smoking (Barbara Walters Special)
Despite fears that he have only two years left to live, actor Patrick Swayze has refused to quit smoking cigarettes .
In a TV special with veteran newswoman Barbara Walters, which airs on Wednesday night, the 56-year-old Dirty Dancing star says kicking the habit is not a priority right now, even though he accepts that the bad habit probably caused his agressive pancreatic cancer.
“I will go so far as to say probably smoking had something to do with my pancreatic cancer.”
(….Dude, you could be dying! If taking care of yourself isn’t a “priority” at this point, when will it ever be?)
Patrick says he has “seriously cut back” on cigarettes.
