Mel Gibson Quits Smoking

Mel Gibson, actor and star of Edge of Darkness and upcoming films such as The Beaver and How I Spent My Summer Vacation, quit smoking after 45 yearsDon’t know when Mel Gibson quit smoking cigarettes, or fags as he lovingly refers to them. But, he recalls the quit smoking process. Gibson quit smoking cold turkey it appears and he recalls the first three days without a cigarette as “torture”. He felt like an axe murderer, he says. The implied reason he quit was because of the birth of his eigth child, Lucia, with his partner Oksana Grigorieva. Having kids will do it.

Parents will endure any sacrifice, no matter how painful, for their children. Ironically, Gibson’s mother smoked “when I was in her womb”. Gibson began smoking at age nine.

  1. I understand where you’re coming from. Ive been a fan of Mel Gibson for as long as I can remember but with his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva telling the world today she feared that he might really hurt her during a fight they had in the news today its hard to know what to think. Anyways good post.
