In the November issue of Men’s Health, Sen. Barack Obama admits that his struggle to quit smoking has not been easy, especially in the midst of a stressful presidential campaign.

 

      “There have been a couple of times during the campaign when I fell off the wagon and bummed one, and I had to kick it again,” Obama says in the article. “But I figure, seeing as I’m running for president, I need to cut myself a little slack.”

 

       His advice for would-be quitters? Eliminate “certain key connections – that first cigarette in the morning, or after a meal, or with a drink,” he says.       

       Obama, 47, says he commits to 45-minute workouts, six days a week. “I lift one day, do cardio the next,” he says. “I wish I was getting a 90-mintue workout. Most of my workouts have to come before my day starts. There’s always a tradeoff between sleep and working out.”
