Reeves Is Desperate To Escape Smoking 'Prison'

Hollywood star KEANU REEVES is desperately trying to kick the smoking habit he picked up on a movie set 14 years ago.
Reeves never touched a cigarette until he stepped onset to play a smoker in 1996 movie Feeling Minnesota, and he has been hooked since.
The 44-year-old says, "It was an outcome of having to smoke on a film. I got hooked making a film, Feeling Minnesota. I didn't start smoking until I was 30. Now I'm just in prison."

Well finally! He must have found out that was the only thing that kept me from going after the dude. I mean he can't smoke around all the children we will be having around us. On my checklist of perfect qualities in a man, for me he had just that one deal-breaker. But now I can deal with it if he quits. Keanu never started anything he couldn't finish. And If KeKe says he is gonna quit he will quit. And Keanu if you are still interested in coming over here to Oregon and take up my invitation. I am sure I can help you find better things to do with those great expressive hands and luscious lips of yours.Just come on over. Congrats on your decision to quit!Love you! EKPG

Im not saying he doesn't want to quit, but this article is ridiculous since he was smoking in "The River's Edge" which came out in like 87 or so???

Its hard to quit something you love. Or something your body loves.Being in Minnesota... anyone can get addicted to something like smokes.The trying to be real in a movie and going all that way to BE THE SMOKER... well thats a character thing, huh... maybe u beleive so much in yourself that seperation is difficult for you also, the rael KC and the Minnesota character. Was it just a character?KC should be greatful that he is only hooked on any other WORSE thing. Like Cocaine, Crack or something bad like that... just be greatful.U realize you have the problem... thats the first step to recovery. Now is the time to deal with your past... the thing that keeps you smoking.Compared to other things you can be addicted to... Something is hard to let go, when your body needs it so much. I am just typing anything... Fill the void with something else POSITIVE.
