Damn it!! He's portrays my all-time favorite character in classic Star Trek & would be devastated if he doesn't pull through. I wish him a speedy recovery.

Very sorry to hear that. I used to smoke for a long time, so I understand I'll have to pay for that eventually.

Mr. Nimoy in good spirits and tweeting up a storm, so I'm not worried about him. Last week he adopted thousands of surrogate grandkids on Twitter. I think he means to be here for a while.

It's great that you decided to quit smoking, as did Nimoy, but anyone is very likely to have one problem or another at 82.

Let's hope so. He's always seemed like a guy who is thankful for his life and those who helped him achieve it.

True, but COPD is the smokers disease. It's not a nice way to go in the long run, but he has money and what I'm sure will be the best of care. I hope he's around for a while longer.

This right here shows the dangers of smoking and why I hate it. Even though he quit so many years ago, COPD still manifested. People quit smoking and twenty years later, they get a blood clot or stroke. The cigarettes without a doubt contributed to that.

They didn't contribute to it so much as caused it directly.

This is why I won't be smoking no damn cigarettes. Just too much risk and shows up randomly and bites you in the ass.

I don't think that is going to help you if you have a serious disease.
People with money die too, you know

Anyway, get well soon Mr. Nimoy! May the force be with you (wth?)

I quit smoking 10 months ago. So glad I did it. Hopefully he can pull through this.

Wow. If he passed soon it would sting a lot. Nimoy was such a big part of my childhood. When I was a kid my mom, a huge TOS fan, bought the whole series on VHS. Man, did I watch the hell out of those tapes.

Of course he is 82. It's a nice run if you think about it. Still, one would like it to be longer. Live long and prosper Leonard.

There needs to be one more Spock Prime appearance, produced preemptively, and inserted into the next Trek film as a final message to new Spock and Kirk (and fans). Vulcans are long-lived, but they do not live forever.

I'd rather not. Spock Prime three times in a row tarnishes the character. When he showed up in the last film, I sighed. Honest Trailers and HISHE did a great gag about it.

Nimoy is Star Trek. He's been the only one there from the beginning, and one of the last survivors from the original pilot.

He probably was, but he still smoked long enough for the damage to come in later.

My grandmother smoked about 40 years. She quit in her 60's. When she became 88 she developed lung cancer and that's how we lost her.

Smoking can still damage your body years after you quit.

Aside from loving his role as Spock, I have lots of respect for his dedication to the fans.
