5 Celebrities Who’ve Successfully Quit Smoking

Quitting any bad habit is hard, but these 5 stars have all battled against their need for a cigarette and have successfully given up smoking. For some it took years of trying to quit, while for others they say it was easy once they gave it a chance. Jennifer Aniston claims that she put on a little weight when she quit after meeting new boyfriend Justin Theroux, while singer Pink has to give up for breastfeeding purposes and doesn’t even drink as much these days for the same reason.

Jennifer Aniston

When asked if she was pregnant, Jennifer said she has quit smoking so she put on some weight: “It’s just I quit smoking, so I’ve gained a couple of pounds. I am not planning to get married any time soon. This ring that I’m wearing is not an engagement ring.I’ve been married once and I don’t know if I’ll get married again, but I can tell you that as of this very moment, as of today, I have no plan to get married”.


Pink had to quit smoking so she could breastfeed, and she’s stopped drinking so much too: “I’m used to going into the studio and smoking and drinking until three in the morning. But I can’t drink as much because I’m breastfeeding. See this glass of wine? Before, I’d have, like, four of them. Now, one is good. Oh, and I quit smoking…”

Mel Gibson

After welcoming a new daughter, Mel decided to quit smoking once and for all, and after a few days found it easy to kick the habit: “The first three days, you’re an axe murderer. On day four you might take a bat to someone. Day five? You’re OK. I’ve lost five pounds and I can breathe all the way out.”

Katherine Heigl

Katherine has quit smoking and uses an e-cigarette now because she hates how smoking planned her life: “I started smoking when I was 24, because I’m an idiot. I don’t enjoy it so much now, because I’ve become such a slave to it. I hate planning my life around when I’m getting a cigarette.”

Julianne Moore

Julianne felt that after quitting she became more clear-headed: “I began to see the most clearly… I was 31 or 32, and I quit smoking. I was so emotional. I had been so unhappy, and I realised that I had just been… literally stuffing it back with those cigarettes in my mouth. I felt like I woke up suddenly.”
