From “Churchill’s Cigar” by Stephen McGinty, Macmillan, London, 2007, page 91, representing an exchange between Winston Churchill and General Bernard Montgomery:

…..General Montgomery, who declared: “I do not drink, I do not smoke, I sleep a great deal. That is why I am 100 per cent fit.” Churchill responded: “I drink a great deal, I sleep a little, and I smoke cigar after cigar. That is why I am 200 per cent fit.”…….

Not sure if it's true but I read somewhere of an exchange between he and Lady Aster. She said, "Sir, if you were my husband I would poison your tea." And he replied, "Madam, if you were my wife I would drink it!"

IIRC, after Churchill had become quite drunk at a dinner party, Lady Aster told him he was drunk. To which he replied "Yes, Madam I am. And you, Madam, are ugly. But in the morning, Madam, I shall be sober; but you, Madam, shall still be ugly!" Here, here for cigars and martini's!! cheers cheers FTRPLT
