WASHINGTON President Barack Obama has finally done what millions of fellow Americans are still struggling to achieve he's given up smoking.

"Yes, he has," his wife, Michelle, said Tuesday at the White House when asked whether he had conquered a nicotine habit that began as a teenager.

"It's been almost a year," she said, offering no details on exactly when or how he quit.

But is the breakup with tobacco final?

One in five adults, about 46 million people, still smoke, and brain research shows that nicotine is powerfully addictive. Three out of four smokers who try to kick the habit relapse within six months, and repeated attempts often are required to quit long term, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Obama, who has one of the world's most stressful jobs, has walked this tobacco road before. He announced in February 2008, during his presidential campaign, that he was quitting smoking again.

"He's always wanted to stop," Mrs. Obama said Tuesday. She said he wants to be able to look daughters Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9, in the eye and deny that he smokes should they ask.

The issue of Obama's smoking last surfaced in December, when White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about it and said he had "not seen or witnessed evidence of any smoking in probably nine months." That timeline would put Obama's final cigarette puffs in March of last year.

At the time, Gibbs stopped short of asserting that Obama had quit completely.

The White House offered no details Tuesday, in keeping with its practice of trying to keep Obama's habit out of the spotlight.

Obama last addressed the question in June 2009.

Before signing a tough anti-smoking law designed to keep millions of teens from getting hooked, Obama ruefully admitted that he had spent his adult life trying to give up cigarettes.

At a news conference the following day he copped to sneaking an occasional puff.

"I constantly struggle with it," the president said. "Have I fallen off the wagon sometimes? Yes. Am I a daily smoker, a constant smoker? No."

Obama said he didn't smoke in front of his kids or other family and had declared himself "95 percent cured." But he also acknowledged times "where I mess up."

"Once you've gone down this path, then it's something you continually struggle with," he said.

Obama has said he used to light up about five times a day, although stress sometimes drove him to smoke more often. He promised his wife he'd quit if she agreed he should run for president.

"I hate it," Michelle Obama told CBS' "60 Minutes" early in the campaign. "That's why he doesn't do it anymore, I'm proud to say. I outed him I'm the one who outed him on the smoking."

She said one of her requirements for entering the race was that "he couldn't be a smoking president."

Based on her comments Tuesday, he is no longer that.

She said she was proud of him, but had not pressed him for details. "When somebody's doing the right thing I don't mess with them," Mrs. Obama said.

Obama has used nicotine gum in his quest to quit smoking. "I've been chewing Nicorette strenuously," he said in 2007. The White House physician urged him last year to stick with "smoking cessation efforts" the use of nicotine gum.

During the presidential campaign, aides filled their pockets with the gum to help Obama control his urges. He occasionally bummed cigarettes from staff, while making sure to emphasize that he was trying to quit for good.

U.S. smoking rates have dropped dramatically since 1964 when the first surgeon general's report declared tobacco deadly, but progress has stalled in the past decade. The government had hoped to push the rate to 12 percent by last year, but the goal has been missed and pushed off till 2020.

Gibbs said Tuesday that a few White House aides, including trip director Marvin Nicholson, also had quit smoking. He suggested the president may have benefited from that too.

"When somebody decides to quit smoking, to try to overcome the physical addiction that they have, they do it not just because they want to but because others want them to, and because others around them give them the type of encouragement that they need to break what is, what is a tough habit to break," Gibbs said during his regular media briefing after being told of the first lady's comment.

 If she was naked in front of you, you would whip out your 5 inch dick with one hand, lift up your gut with your other hand, and slide it in.

 Just turn the lights off and fuck it. That's my philosophy.

 True Adonis wouldn't even feel two cocks in his ass. I'll shove my leg in there though and maybe that will give him a prostate orgasm.

I call Bull shit on Obama giving up smoking. Sure we will never see him do it in public again, but no way he can go threw the toughest point in his life(being President) with that much pressure and stop a habit like that. He's already aged 10 years in the last 2. Only way he could possibly stop during his Presidency is if he starts in on a massive cocaine/Booze addiction. Much like Bush Jr.

You think every President thats ever lived looks like they aged 20 years in 4 years because they're having fun. Their minds are programmed to do the job but their bodies are fucked. The only reason they're chosen for the position is because they're robots. Those types of guys don't just break a habit like its nothing. They are chosen because their every move is already pre-determined.

 The President does have a busy schedule, but it's not much worse than the schedule of the average businessman. I've got buddies who work just as hard. I've had jobs in the past that were definitely equally as busy and demanding.

 The President lives in levels of luxery and privelage that most people cannot even imagine. He's a fucking spoiled little bitch if he can't handle it.

 Try working full time at McDonalds and going home to a shitty apartment or something like that. It makes me laugh when people act like the President has such a hard job and challenging life.

The President has to get up everyday and speak in front of a bunch of people and talk about shit that he really has next to know clue about. He's force feed his information from people who do know about the subject at hand. Tell me with a straight face thats an easy job. He's bullshitting his programmed mind through whatever "they" tell him to say or do. Your buddies go to work everyday and do the same exact thing. They master their job. The President has to choose his words correctly at any/every given time or deal with the after math.

 I'm not saying the President's job is easy. He has a challenging job just like billions of other people.

 I'm saying that his life in general is very, very, very easy.

 Your job is only a part of your life, your lifestyle after work affects your psyche much more. And after work the President can literally do anything he wants. And as the President he is constantly being looked up to and getting his ass kissed by everyone.

 The President should have no reason to be stressed out. If I was the President i'd be high as a kite 24/7 regardless of my job duties.
