The Golden Globe Award winner in an interview to the New York Post narrates his struggle to quit smoking. He says that he had in past tried several times to abstain from smoking. But every time he tried to quit, he felt “deeply miserable.” Pitt had been smoking from past many years and he was kind of addicted. He says that if he did not smoke, he felt irritated and suffered bad temper.
The 51-year-old actor also admitted that initially he missed his packet of cigarettes. “Withdrawal was so hard, I was ready to kill.” He invested a lot of his time in the process though he was not enjoying it. He says that his trainer had told him that it would be unpleasant, and later he found that the trainer was every bit right.
Pitt married actress Angelina Jolie in 2014. He has three biological children with her and three adopted children. Pitt admits that he was able to conquer his bad habit of smoking marijuana only when he became the father to Maddox, Jolie’s adopted son. He says, “That (having kids) was the only thing that got me to quit.”
Pitt has also told Esquire magazine in 2013, “I always thought if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big.” He said that he loves it when there is chattering, laughing, banging etc. in the house.
Children have definitely done a lot of good to Pitt. They have made him quit smoking. There has also been some tittle-tattle that the couple might adopt a Syrian refugee.
