In a new conversation with Q104.3, Keith Richards, the legendary member of the English rock band The Rolling Stones, has announced that he quits smoking almost four months from this past October.

“I’ve given up smoking… since October. Done that, been there,” he said.

Last year, Keith Richards was said that quitting heroin is like hell but it is a short hell, and continued:

“Cigarettes are just always there, and you’ve always done it. I just pick ’em up and light ’em up without thinking about it.

“Lately, in fact – spread the news – I’ve managed to cut it down by a substantial amount every day. I’ve knocked the hard stuff on the head. I have a little wine with meals, and a Guinness or a beer or two.”
