5 Stars Speak on Their Struggle to Quit Smoking

Patricia Arquette

Patricia has quit several times but always takes it back up again: “I’ve always struggled with smoking. I’ve quit, I’ve started, I’ve quit, I’ve started.”


Pink hates the habit and has cut back: “Smoking isn’t cute at all. [I started when I] was 9. It’s awful. I hate the smell, the taste. I hate being around people when I smoke. I hate everything about it. I’m an asthmatic singing smoker! But for some reason, I look at it as the last remaining bit of me before all of this [fame and success]. I’ve definitely cut way back. At night, when I’m out drinking my wine, I’ll have cigarettes rationed to me. But I don’t smoke at home.”
