Some sad news for "Star Trek" legend Leonard Nimoy, he has a serious lung disease.
Apparently reacting to stories from publications reporting he was using a wheelchair and an oxygen tube in his nose, he tweeted:
I quit smoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP— Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) January 30, 2014
COPD is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and is said to be caused by smoking.
Nimoy followed up that first tweet with:
Smokers, please understand. If you quit after you're diagnosed with lung damage it's too late. Grandpa says learn my lesson. Quit now. LLAP.— Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) February 6, 2014
I'm doing OK. Just can't walk distances. Love my life,family, friends and followers. LLAP

Nimoy, who portrayed the half-human half-Vulcan Spock on the original Star Trek TV series from 1966-1969, signed each tweet with the abbrevation of a phrase made popular by his character that has become his signature quote, "Live Long And Prosper."
