Ben Affleck had been a smoker for almost twenty years. He had described the habit as “part of who I was”. But he decided to try to quit, and for a very good reason; he was about to become a dad for the first time. He told Oprah that, “I finally decided to quit smoking when I was gonna have a child. That was the thing that sort of put it over the top for me.”
After going through hypnosis he quit, and I’m sure then he thought it was for good. He once said, “my last cigarette was on November 10th, 2005… I feel a huge difference in my health now that I don’t smoke. I feel like I’m in better shape than I was five years ago.” But that is all in the past, and now the dad of two, who is expecting his third with wife Jennifer Garner, gave in to the nicotine gods.
Ben was spotted smoking on the set of his new film Argo. And it wasn’t part of the role, he was smoking between takes. Check out photos of Ben smoking here. Hopefully he just fell off the wagon a little and won’t be going back to his full time smoking ways. nggallery id=’115819′
