Kohli further said, 'It had been 10 years since I started smoking, I thought I wanted to quit it. II realized that I used to do it more frequently when I was anxious about work. I was ready to see if I could really do it.'

"I just woke up one morning and said I have to stop," Purab says. It was really hard for me to quit smoking. I bought a cigarette and I used to keep it in my hand and never lit it. I used to hold it in my hand and puff on it without lighting it and gradually the feeling of wanting it ended. Even in the shops where I used to buy it, whenever I went to them I felt like smoking. I started realizing how badly I am addicted to tobacco.'

This second time I quit smoking permanently

Kohli adds, 'The second time I quit smoking permanently. It gets better after the first six to seven months. You feel sleepy, and when you try to quit, you start gaining weight. I remember eating crunchy, carrots and cucumber to keep me from craving too much. It helped me form good habits. Now my face looks better and my mind is so calm. Deep and relaxing breaths, wow! I feel so happy that I don't feel that craving anymore, it's been more than 13-14 years since I last smoked.'
