Obama to Cigs: I Wish I Knew How to Quit You

4/3/2008 5:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There may be something more dangerous to Barack Obama than pastor Rev. Wright -- his nasty smoking habit!

While Barack allegedly quit smoking back in February 2007, ABC News Correspondent Jake Tapper says he ran into the Illinois senator in August when he "reeked of cigarettes." Obama did inhale! Obama even admitted he "fell off the wagon" on last night's "Hardball." Maybe LiLo can lend Barack some of her Ariva.

If BO wants to stay off the cancer sticks, he should just take his own advice and say: Yes We Can!

A rep for Obama would not comment.

If he's serious about wanting to quit, he should try the prescription drug Chantix. I've been a smoker for 25+ years and was able to finally quit after taking Chantix.

I find the fact that he smokes more appealling as it shows his human, vulnerable side. Light em up along with the other 28 million adults who enjoy a good smoke now and then! Way to go Barrack. Enjoy that Camel!

Insert comical name here    

I know stopping a smoking habit is hard but its by no means impossible with all the aids out there. I don't want someone who can't exhibit enough self control to quit the habit running the country. Besides, he seems too full of himself by far.

Yall a bunch of idiots. How stupid do you sound "nosmoking"! Your not going to vote for someone because they may or maynot smoke. This might not even be true. Why would you get your information about political issues from TMZ? sounds to me your not concerned with the real issues in America, your only concerned with if someone is smoking in the White House, please give me a break! Let stay focus on the real issues, like how are they going to bring the troops back home and when.
