Quitting smoking might be challenging, but some celebrities have managed to kick the habit in inspiring ways. 

1. President Barack Obama

Former US President Barack Obama used to struggle with smoking during his youth and early presidency, but with the help of nicotine gum, and his wife Michelle’s encouragement, he successfully quit the habit in 2011. He humorously credited his success to being “scared of my wife!”

2. Prince Harry

Prince Harry also got rid of his smoking habit, inspired by his health-conscious wife, Meghan Markle. Before their wedding, Harry worked with a nutritional advisor to quit smoking, improve his diet, and lose weight, showing the powerful influence of a supportive partner.

3. Keith Richards

Richards, the iconic Rolling Stones guitarist, revealed in 2020 that he quit smoking in late 2019. Although he has a history of alcohol and drugs, he found nicotine the hardest to quit, comparing it to heroin. However, Richards was able to quit smoking by cutting down on his cigarette intake gradually every day.

4. Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm, famous for his role in “Mad Men,” quit smoking at 24. Even though his character smoked throughout the series, Hamm used herbal cigarettes on the set, instead of real tobacco.

5. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston, a former chain smoker, was also successful in quitting smoking and caffeine. Her dedication to yoga played a crucial role in overcoming her addiction.


The journeys of the above celebrities show that quitting smoking (or any other bad habit) requires personal resolve, healthy habits, and supportive relationships. Whether it’s through nicotine gum, gradual reduction, or lifestyle changes like yoga, their stories offer valuable lessons for anyone trying to quit smoking.
