Well, am I healthy, or just "living", with no quality of life? If I'm healthy, about 1000. I really want to see what we can do next. My grandfather, who was born in the late 1800 (not sure of the exact date, but I believe 1887 to maybe 1892 or so) As a young man, I am sure that he rode a horse, and yet he lived long enough to see a man walk on the moon. THINK about that. One life time. We've done some pretty cool stuff, too, but that just amazes me!

If I am not healthy, then I want to live just to my very first major, life changing event. I don't want to burden anyone. Or sit and stare out of a window....

Of course we all want to live a long good life. Being happy and enjoying life while one is alive is the most important thing. Better enjoy life while you can ! We both hope live long enough to enjoy grandkids like our parents did.

True...except our Friday night dinner group...all a bit older then the average here, did have that discussion a few weeks back and let me tell you, it got us all to thinking. It's spooky. We are all on that "countdown clock" when you give it any thought.

We agree with your thoughts on all that. 1000 though? Only if someone really quick learns to imprint your thought patterns into a robot body. I think that will happen, but not for many centuries to come.

Probably my 80's - 100's. The oldest woman in my family was 106 when she died, and the youngest was 80. By natural causes that is.

The youngest was 62 and it was a heart attack that killed her.

I agree, every day is one day closer to death. I guess having been near death so many times, it is not something scary for me. I fact, at times I welcome the release of it, but it never comes. That's not to say I'm not happy to be alive. Once you have accepted it as inevitable and live with that in the back of your mind, I find you let it go. It doesn't hold any power over you other than that you have either decided to live the best you can or not. I have no stress about it because I have discussed and thought about it enough and come to terms with it since I was a young teen.

To sort of answer your question, I want to live as long as my mind is happy to be present in my body. Sounds weird to say, but I think that covers what I mean. If I were in a pain riddled body to the point I wanted out at all costs, or if I were mentally anguished with no relief in sight, then I would welcome death. However, as I have clearly not killed myself yet despite plenty of health problems, even a smidgen of hope for positive change can keep me going. I have intellectual curiosity and still take pleasure in many things and those are my two requisites for wanting to stay alive.

To put numbers on it is so difficult for me, but I will say I have seen people in their 90's who are still sharp as a tack and not suffering horribly. I think I will live into my 80's but would be happy living longer, though I don't care if I croak in my 80's.
