London: Colin Farrell says he has finally kicked his habit of smoking.
A former chain-smoker, the 35-year-old Irish actor often had to wear a nicotine patch to satisfy his cravings while filming on sets where the habit is banned.
But now Farrell says he has ended his relationship with cigarettes in a bid to get healthy, reported Contactmusic.
"It was time. I was a 40-cigarette-a-day smoker, but I wasn`t enjoying it. So, on my 34th birthday last year, I spent a day with a pack and consciously looked at every single puff until I smoked the last one at 11.55 that night.
"I did a whole ritual thing by writing a letter to tobacco, giving it as much significance as I possibly could.
I`m done with it," Farrell said.
