Obama Quit Smoking: Can social media help you stop?

If you are in need of inspiration to help you quit smoking – this might just be what you are looking for. It has been reported that President Obama has managed to quit smoking, if the words of Philippine President-elect Benigno Aquino are to be believed.

As reported from UPI, Obama apparently told Aquino in a phone conversation that he had quit, or as Obama put it ‘kicked the habit’. Aquino, also a smoker, revealed that Obama also offered to help him quit, should he decide to do so in the future.
