Projected Life expectancy

So I found this link: https://www.blueprintincome.com/tool...g-will-i-live/


I looked at my factors and I can add 0.5 years to my life by working out 3-4 times per week vs the 1-2 times a week I currently work out.


On the other hand , if I have 2-7 drinks per week I can add 0.6 years to my live vs the 1-2 drinks I currently consume.


What do I do? Isn't it obvious?

Never ran with them, (was one of the Riyadh Road Runners who ran on paved roads RRR Riyadh Road Runners and for a few years wrote the (unpaid) RRR bi-weekly race summary in the Saudi Gazette), but sometimes walking in the desert would see traces of the flour (I think it was flour) that the Hare used to mark the route:

19 more years of Covid-19 lockdown. Nineteen seems to be a magic number.
Of course, both of my parents croaked at 95-1/2.
Whatever.

I lost 2.9 years by not drinking booze vs. 8 or more drinks a week.

15 more years of being locked up. I could shorten that if I start drinking and smoking. I need a plan.

When you are my age (76) you hope for a few more than that!

I rarely drink...maybe 4 or 5 per YEAR. I'm surprised to see that my life expectancy would increase with one drink per week and even a little better with 2 - 5 drinks a week.

Not what I would have thought. So drinking even a little does a body good, I guess.

"Your life expectancy is 6.1 years greater than most!
Great job, but you'll spend hundreds of thousands more in your long retirement. An Annuity provides income as long as you live."

I'm sure most folks that sell annuities would agree that, yes, selling annuities is a great way to keep the commissions and bonuses coming in.

For the buyer? Meh.

When I use a calculator I usually get between 84-86 which I think is realistic. This one said 92.

Because I think I t is trying to sell you an annuity. As least that is what it suggested to me when I answered the questions and it came up with my very long life expectancy.
