SAN ANTONIO — Willie Nelson is quitting something he is known for, and it's not country music.
The country music star has smoked his last joint after years of smoking.
“I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days and I have to be careful,” Nelson told KSAT. "I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever. And that almost killed me.”
The singer had just performed a sold-out two-night stand at the Majestic Theater in San Antonio.
“I don’t smoke anymore – take better care of myself,” Nelson added.
At 86 years old, the Austinite is no stranger to health issues. He recently canceled his tour for a period of time back in August because of his said breathing problems.
