London, Mar 14 (ANI): Cancer-stricken American actor Patrick Swayze, who has become very frail and thin and suffered hair loss due to chemotherapy, was recently seen lighting a cigarette during a shopping trip in LA.

Swayze, 56, who was slightly limping as he walked, was with his wife Lisa Niemi, 52, and a male friend.

According to reports, he is reluctant to kick the butt.

Ill drop cigarettes when it looks like I may live longer than five minutes, the Mirror quoted him as saying.

But despite his friends saying that he is not doing so well, The Beast star is positive about how his life is going.

There are so many positive things going on in my life, he said.

Ive started new chemotherapy and again Im one of the lucky ones with pancreatic cancer that responds well to the treatment.

I am starting work on my new book, in addition to enjoying the fantastic response from everyone on my TV series The Beast, he added. (ANI)
