London, Aug 7 (IANS) Actor Patrick Swayze was spotted smoking again despite the fact that he is suffering from cancer.
According to, Swayze was not given much time to live when he was first diagnosed, but he is being treated with an advanced form of radiotherapy called CyberKnife.

Swayze recently went into a shop selling smoking paraphernalia and came out with a glass pipe. But he has also been looking much healthier than in the past.

“Compared to a few months ago, he looked much better. He didn’t look as frail and seemed in good spirits,” said an onlooker.

The actor claims that his puppy is helping him deal with the cancer.

“There is a brand new, 12-week-old, Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy named Kumasai in my life who is gorgeous and already showing that he will be one special dog. Also, I am starting work on my new book, in addition to enjoying the fantastic response from everyone on the ‘The Beast’ sets. I have so much to be thankful for at this time,” he said.
