Kicking Bad Habits

President Obama has come under fire for using marijuana and other drugs as a teen, but it was his cigarette-smoking habit that didn’t go over well with his wife. Obama promised Michelle he would quit smoking before running for president (which he didn't). In 2010, he hung up the bad habit for good to set an example for his daughters, Sasha and Malia.
