Obama Admits Bumming Cigarettes – Hasn’t Really Quit

leave a comment »

Barack Obama says he wishes he had more time for staying fit. And the Democratic presidential candidate admits that he still smokes cigarettes, “occasionally”.

“Quitting smoking” didn’t create “huge withdrawal symptoms,” the Illinois senator said, partly because he smoked only half a pack per day when he “quit”. His wife, Michelle, pressured him to quit, he said.

Obama’s advice for those trying to kick the habit? “Eliminate certain key connections — that first cigarette in the morning, or after a meal, or with a drink,” he said. “If you can eliminate those triggers, that should help.”

Obama said he’s bummed cigarettes often during the campaign, calling into question his claim to have quit.

“But I figure, seeing as I’m running for president, I need to cut myself a little slack,” he said. Seems in not telling the truth, Obama feels he is entitled to “a little slack” all the time.
