Senator Benigno Aquino, 50, the Philippines president-elect, smokes a pack of cigs a day and he’s not ready to quit anytime soon. Aquino, who will succeed Gloria Arroyo on June 30, insists that he should be free to smoke and wishes to preserve one of the the “few remaining freedoms” he has left. This comes after health activists started campaigning for Aquino to quit his smoking habit in order to set a good example for the rest of the country.
“I will be coming under a lot of pressure. Should I add another unnecessary pressure? Maybe that might even affect my decisions on what I should do.”
The man is under stress people!
