Jon Bon Jovi Quits Smoking To Save Money
May 26, 2010
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.”
