Winston Churchill’s smoking habits
It’s no secret that Winston Churchill was a big fan of cigars. He was almost always photographed with one between his fingers or in his mouth. But just how much did he love them? Apparently, QUITE A BIT. Churchill was known to smoke between 8-10 cigars a day, sometimes as many as 15. Those are cigars, NOT cigarettes. He would sometimes let them burn down so he could chew on them. Churchill allegedly called smoking “one of the greatest pleasures in life”.
