Growing up, I told a lot of people I wouldn't live past 18. When I was 18, i coded twice, was brain dead for over a day, and in a coma for several days. I dont play that guessing game anymore.

Fortunately they raised the smoking age to 21, so that'll never happen again.

I’m about to enter my mid 40s.

Given my poor health, stress level, and the way I refuse to take care of myself, I’ll be surprised if I make 60

With my high level of income, and the advances in medical technology, I’ll probably hit 135.

I've always said if I can live to be 60, i'll probably grind it out to 80.    

 

I've seemed to only inherit the bad traits from my biological father's side of the gene pool.   I've dodged being a drunk pretty easily, but the heart issues seem to kick in at 50.  We'll see.

Our family motto is "Lutum, non morietur".

My father's grand father lived until 90. Mean as hell, drunk.

My grandfather on my dad's side lived until 89. Mean as hell, drunk. Smoked from the age of 12.

My dad died at 56 but, had a stressed out life.

Quad bypass in the early 1980's that didn't really help much. Had his first heart attack at 50. Damn near died from that. Only thing that saved him was sittin' in a hospital waiting room to see my older brother who passed out in a New Orleans bar and busted his head.

 

I figure I'm good to go until 85-90 years old.

My dad lived to 71 as a heavy smoker and drinker; his mom was the same and she made it to 80 something.  My mom is still going strong at 75 but on her side it's a mixed bag- some died early, but a lot were probably from things that could be cured today or prevented by not smoking.  My guess is at least mid 80s, possibly much longer depending on if somebody is trying to find a cure for whatever I have.

I'll die when I'm ready to, and not a moment before.

I don't anticipate death, but I'm fairly certain it anticipates me.

I lost a brother at 43. My mom passed at 84, and my dad is 86. So I'm just gonna go with early-mid 60s.

That's crazy. Do you go for lots of extra check ups? Variety of causes or a main one? I think I'd get a fat term life policy...

80s seem likely, statistically, but I'll probably find a way to die from something stupid well before then. Not something I worry much about. I have appropriate insurance.

My family are indians and irish that drank excessively and used a lot of drugs. I think the abuse outweighed genetics. My oldest sister died from a grand mal seizure.
