Hitchens Doesn't Regret 'Wine and Other Stimulants'

The ailing Christopher Hitchens remains unrepentant regarding his “bohemian existence“—i.e., smoking and drinking a whole lot.

“Making the most out of every moment and enjoying every dinner often kept the flow of wine and other stimulants going,” he said in a recent radio interview. The Page Six report adds that Hitchens went on to quote Winston Churchill’s defense of cigars and brandy: “I’ve got more out of it than it’s got out of me.”

This is sort of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” approach to cancer.
