Different celebrities have opened up on how they quit smoking.
Most started smoking for leisure till it became addictive.
Among celebs who quit smoking include;
David Mathenge alias Nameless has revealed that he was a cigarette smoker.
The father of two through his social media shared throwback photos of him holding a cigarette.

He said he last smoked in 2010 but said he is still taking alcohol although responsibly.
Classic 105 presenter Mike Mondo quit smoking in 2020.
He started the journey in June. Speaking to Word Is, Mike said he has been smoking for 10 years.
“I have been smoking since the year 2010 and I am growing older, which means I need to develop a healthier lifestyle,” he said.
“I used to smoke 20 pieces a day, which is a whole packet.”
Mike said the journey has not been easy but he is slowly adjusting. “It’s tough. Down to around five cigarettes a day from a pack a day,” he said.
Mike said it is not true that all radio presenters smoke to develop a deep voice.
“You either have the voice or not. Smoking doesn’t make your voice deeper. If that was the case, women who smoke would sound like me. With a bass.”
His advice to people who are trying to quit smoking is, it’s not an easy journey.
“The temptation to smoke is too much. But try to get something to distract you from the [urge] to smoke,” he said.
