Is it fair to tell someone, let alone the QUEEN, to drop a habit this late in the game? Both of my grandma’s lived long, full lives into their 90s. One liked to smoke, “two puffs”, each day. She also drank a shot of prune juice every night and ate chocolate ice cream for dinner. It didn’t feel right to tell her to quit, after all the woman lived through 5 wars, the great depression, and putting a man on the moon!
At 95 years of age, QUEEN ELIZABETH is being asked to give up one of her daily rituals: Her evening cocktail.
The Queen has a drink every night, usually a martini. But her doctors have advised her to stop.
A source says, quote, “It’s not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker. But it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she’s having to give up one of very few pleasures.”
Thoughts? Is it fair to tell someone who has raised a family, lived a full life, and is slowing down to quit a habit that clearly hasn’t impacted them as negatively as society says?
