He didn't smoke, but during the last few months of his life, it's reported he turned to drinking Japanese Sake. There are rumours he was suffering from anxiety, so maybe Bruce was looking for a way to relax, apart from the Cannibis of course (it wasn't hash, Wu just made a mistake I think) I can't remember if Bleecker mentioned the anxiety, but he did have access to information on Bruce's medical records. It pretty much a given now that Bruce wasn't responding too well to the fame thrust upon him. Bruce was rather sensitive deep down, and preferred the simple life, but he wanted fame, so it was a catch 22 for him. Personally, Bruce should have gotten out of HK sooner and took some time off. But he was so close to super-stardom, so he couldn't quit.

On a side note, it's always occured to me that Bruce's face ages/changes a lot from '72 to '73, around the time he started with the Cannibis (and whatever it was laced with!) Just take a look at the pictures of his press conferences and/or any other pictures over the last year of his life and compare. He looked younger and more fresh faced in early '72 IMO.

I've never seen any pics of Bruce Lee smoking, never heard of any of his friends and family saying he did either, I'd like to see these pics.

Sorry dude, but I don't believe you. If photos of Bruce Lee smoking existed, especially if Norris was in the shot, we would have seen them by now.

Bruce can be seen with a cigarette in his early films circa 1956-8 (there are pics from at least three different movies where Bruce smokes).
As for the alcohol he claimed he didn't really like to drink at all.

Thanks
