New York: Veteran singer Leonard Cohen has vowed to celebrate his 80th birthday by lighting up a cigarette again.

The “Hallelujah” singer, who gave up cigarettes after years of heavy smoking, will turn 80 Sunday, reports

"Quite seriously, does anyone know where you can buy a Turkish or Greek cigarette? I'm looking forward to that first smoke. I've been thinking about that for 30 years. It's one of the few consistent strings of thoughts I've been able to locate," Cohen said.
