Jon Bon Quits Smoking?!

Jon Bon Jovi - Bon Jovi Quits Smoking To Save Money

Rocker JON BON JOVI has given up cigarettes - because he refuses to pay the huge insurance premiums needed to cover a smoker.

The Livin' On A Prayer hitmaker picked up the habit while filming 1994 movie Moonlight and Valentino, but finally decided to turn his back on tobacco after trying to buy life insurance - and realising he was paying over-the-odds due to his love of cigarettes.

He tells Q magazine, "I swore off them before the tour and I'm happy to say that I haven't picked them up again.

"(I quit because of) the cold hard truth. I tried to get life insurance and the price with smoking was so ridiculous it was enough to p**s you off and just throw them in the garbage. So it was cold f**king turkey."


No matter why he did it, if this is for real, I'm glad he did. Now, if I could only get my hub to quit, all would be right in Queenie's world. At least for today anyway. :)

This is an old article I believe. I know I've read it several times over the past several years. And, I believe we saw in the doc that he is indeed smoking.

Queenie would love to know who's following along. Comments are both encouraged and appreciated!

I am and always have been a Bon Jovi fan. This blog is just my obsession taken a step further, my imagination in high gear if you will. I love to read and decided to see what would happen when I took that love of the written word and ramped it up a bit.
