Obama Ditching Cig’s

According to Livesteez, Obama needs to make a bigger effort to stop smoking completely:

In a recent interview, U.S. President-elect Barack Obama gave a vague repsonse to the question on whether he had managed to quit smoking. In a country where cigarettes are responsible for one in five deaths and smoking costs tens of billions of dollars in health care, Obama has been under pressure to set an example by giving up his reported two-decade-old habit. Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program, interviewer Tom Brokaw told Obama he had ducked answering the question during an interview last month with ABC’s Barbara Walters. Noting that the White House was a no-smoking zone, Brokaw asked Obama, “Have you stopped smoking?” “I have,” Obama replied, smiling broadly. “What I said was that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon.” “Wait a minute,” Brokaw interjected, “that means you haven’t stopped.” “Fair enough,” Obama said. “What I would say is that I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier. You will not see any violations of these rules in the White House.” Obama was often observed on the presidential campaign trail chewing Nicorette gum, which helps ease the craving for nicotine. He has tried several times to quit, according to Reuters. The 47-year-old president-elect, who takes office on January 20, works out daily at the gym and sometimes plays basketball. His doctor said in May he was in excellent health, often jogged 3 miles a day, and was fit to serve as U.S. president.

Put down the death sticks, Obama. Even though you look as healthy as Jack O’Lane, in the long run, those things will get you.

    I hope he quits on his own before something else does. Nothing is worse than haveing to grasp for air because your lungs can no longer function at its full capacity due to smoking.

    AIR – Don’t take it for granted.
