Quitting smoking is hard—just ask John Mellencamp. The 58-year-old rocker had a heart attack in 1994, but he still smokes.
Mellencamp’s 14-year-old son Speck created a Facebook group—1,000,000 to Join, My Dad John Mellencamp Will Quit Smoking. If it attracts 1 million people, Mellencamp swears he’ll kick the habit once and for all.
By January 2010, almost 290,000 Facebook users had joined. But you don’t have to be a rock star to find creative ways to quit smoking—though you’ll feel like one when you do. Here, some ex-smokers share the crazy things that finally helped them kick the habit.
