The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, has openly discussed his past addictive smoking habit and the catalyst that finally made him quit.
Obama addressed the issue of his smoking habit in his book titled ‘A Promised Land’ which is set to be released on November 17.He gave the credit to his eldest daughter Malia for igniting the switch in him to quit smoking.
In his own words: ‘Have I fallen off the wagon sometimes? Yes. Am I daily smoker, a constant smoker? No. I don’t do it in front of my kids. I don’t do it in front of my family. And, you know, I would say that I am 95% cured, but there are times where there are times where I mess up,’
