President Obama still smoking? Doctor’s note may be smoking gun

WASHINGTON – President Obama’s doctors hinted Sunday that he still might be sneaking smokes when Michelle and the kids aren’t around to yell at him.

Obama’s routine physical at the Bethesda Naval Medical Center found him in “excellent health” and “fit for duty” but the docs also included a cryptic recommendation that he “continue smoking cessation efforts.”

Obama should continue his “nicotine replacement therapy – self-use (gum or the patch),” the doctor said.

Obama owned up during the 2008 presidential campaign to falling off the wagon occassionally in his effort to quit with the help of nicotine gum.

Obama has also said that First Lady Michelle Obama, and kids Malia and Sasha, have been all over him to break the habit.


Obama Signs Tough Anti-Smoking Bill, but Quitting the Habit Himself is Tougher

WASHINGTON — President Obama signed into law today the toughest new measures ever on the tobacco industry designed to stop young people from smoking, a powerful habit that the president himself started as a teenager — and one he is still grappling with on a day-to-day basis.

The Family Smoking Prevention Act the president approved gives the US Food and Drug Administration sweeping authority to regulate ingredients in tobacco products, like tar and nicotine, as well as limit advertisements aimed at young people and have final say over new tobacco products. The law, which Congress passed overwhelmingly, also restricts makers of tobacco products from using candy or fruit flavorings in their products and bans them from advertising at sporting or entertainment events.

Before signing the bill, Obama said the harmful effects of tobacco products have been known for decades, and “more than 400,000 Americans now die of tobacco-related illnesses each year, making it the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. More than 8 million Americans suffer from at least one serious illness caused by smoking” at a national cost of more than $100 billion a year.

“What’s even worse are the effects on our children,” Obama said, noting that one in five kids under age 18 will be smoking by the time they leave high school. “Each day, 1,000 young people under the age of 18 become new, regular, daily smokers.”

Obama then added his own well-publicized fight with tobacco for emphasis.

“Almost 90 percent of all smokers began at or before their 18th birthday,” he said. “I know — I was one of these teenagers, and so I know how difficult it can be to break this habit when it’s been with you for a long time.”

Before running for president, Obama famously made a deal with his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama: she would fully support his run for the White House if he quit smoking. During the campaign, Obama used nicotine gum to break the habit, but since his election he has declined to say he has quit smoking for good.

Asked yesterday if the president has had relapses, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs would say only that his boss, like most smokers trying to quit, “struggles with it every day. I don’t honestly see the need to get a whole lot more specific than the fact that it’s a continuing struggle.”

  4. It is a great struggle to stop what you used to when you have been doing it everyday for a very long time. For smokers to quit, they need to have that desire to really stop smoking. They should also be supported because they can never do it alone. I agree with what 25yearson said, we should not pressure smokers to stop but rather reinforce in their minds positive thoughts so it will be easier for them to stop it. I recommend you take the advices written in this site because they are of great importance: http://www.bestquitsmokingmethod.com/

  5. I know it’s hard to see a role model with an addiction, but smoking is an addiction, and the president is addicted. He simply doesn’t have the will power to quit. I’m sure if he realized that he is a role model, he wouldn’t do it. 😉

  6. Better avoid smoking as soon as possible, because you will get more benefits especially for your body. For Obama, I think this is quit difficult for him to stop from his habit. You need a strong determination to stop from smoking. Thank

  7. There are a lot of benefits to quitting smoking. However, I don’t believein pressurising people to quit. It just makes the smoker anxious and possibly feeling guilty about smoking. I believe that the way to stop smoking is with positive thoughts.

    It is easy to quit smoking if you can learn to think positively and believe it is easy. I went from a 30 a day smoker to zero overnight.

    I’ve actually written an ebook on this. Using my method, I just felt liberated and positive from day 1. You can read the first 2 chapters of my ebook on my site for free
