Antonio Banderas: Spanish actor has quit smoking

Antonio Banderas smoking a cigarette.

The actor's decision to quit a life long habit of smoking was inspired by a heart attack experience.

Veteran actor, Antonio Banderas has put an end to his cigarette smoking lifestyle after suffering a heart attack earlier in January 2017.

He disclosed this in an interview with Diario Sur, a Spanish news agency telling it that he had ended his smoking habit without needing a pill.


“If there is something good that came from all of this, it is that I suddenly stopped smoking, without needing pills or anything like that. It’s over!"

To maintain discipline and gain total freedom from his old ways, the actor mentioned that he intends to make work his personal getaway as far as smoking is concerned.

This is expected to offer him the needed distraction necessary to keep him sober.

“I’m going to keep working but I’m going to do it at another rhythm.

"I am going to give myself space, take time between productions, and above all make the jump which I have yearned for a long time, and put myself behind the camera, write my scripts,”  he added.
