On 30 June 2010, Hitchens postponed his book tour for Hitch-22 to undergo treatment for metastatic esophageal cancer[128] that has spread to his lymph nodes and lungs.[129] He first made the announcement of his diagnosis in Vanity Fair magazine. In August, Hitchens discussed his diagnosis with Anderson Cooper on CNN. He told Cooper that the long-term prognosis is far from positive and that when you use cigarettes and alcohol, which he has used heavily, you "make yourself a candidate" for the disease. He also says not to credit any reports that he repented with God. Speaking with The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, Hitchens stated that he would be a "very lucky person" to live another five years.[130]
