I just read an article where Keith said that, as of October, he had quit smoking. Has this been posted here before?

On threads discussing the tour announcement, yes. That's where Keith made it public.

Get rid of all smoke as it doesn't belong in our bodies. One exception - any smoke that will help a cancer patient or anyone suffering from any circumstance shall be allowed.

Thanks, Rocky. I hadn't read all the announcement threads. I thought it surely would have been mentioned someplace here. Anyway, good for Keith, a man beloved by so many.

>shall be allowed

So glad its not you making the laws.

I always wonder exactly what "quit" means when applied to Keith Richards and particularly Ron Wood. Because you hear they "quit" drinking and then see them with what seems to look like a beer in their hand. And we all know how sincere Ronnie was about "quitting' the peruvian marching powder, and I would assume Keith just never bothered, yet they talk about being "clean". Its all relative I guess.

As for Keith having quit smoking I wonder if this also includes weed (and not only cigarettes).

I seriously doubt it, and he doesn't need to quit. Weed smoke is less toxic...and he could always vape if he really wanted to preserve what are left of his lungs.

Well done Keith, better late than never. Beggars the question why after all these years, looking forward to some nice clear vocals from Keith this tour.

Suppose one can vape cannabis or tobacco...
Marijuana doesn't contain any nicotine... so maybe that makes vaping cannabis safer than vaping tobacco.

One less bit of humor to make the rounds...



...but one can still wonder what kind of world we'll leave behind for Keith Richards:

Nicotine is the least dangerous component in cigarettes (in comparison roughly as dangerous as coffee, according to toxicologists). What makes weed and tobacco dangerous is rather the smoke from combustion and various things contained therein (tar, etc.). Vaping is a safer alternative for both but Keith doesn't really look like a vaper. If memory serves, he even ridiculed Ronnie when Ronnie had a try on vaping several years ago. But who knows? Next folks to interview him might sniff his clothes. winking smiley

Well this is inspiring.
If Keef can quit after all these years, I certainly can. thumbs up

BTW - I think Ronnie is still vaping. I wonder if Keef is vaping now?

... and if they pass the resultant tour cost savings along to their fans, then ticket prices should be much, much lower this tour.

Not necessarily, hopefully he's on a health kick, needs to be as he hardly moved on stage last year, played great but it would be nice to see him more mobile this tour. Rock on Keith.

At his age, surely the damage - if there has been any, that is - is already done, though?

Re: Keith Richards quit smoking

lungs regenerate, that's why quitting smoking tobacco at any age is beneficial.

Took me 5 years to truly "quit"...didn't have any cigarettes during that time but its hard to remove from your mind especially in the company of smokers. You have to accept the world for what it is, and if you really do not want to smoke anymore, live with the temptations. Luckily tobacco does nothing for you mentally so its not like its giving up dope and the feeling, whatever intoxication tobacco may have initially had passed after the first month of smoking, after that its pure habit and the short lived actual physical addiction to nicotine. The initial part was easy for me, I had done it a million times, it was accepting that this the new life now and it gets better with every passing day, or at least month. Problem is, it takes some months to really feel better so often relapse is the result of not seeing immediate results.

Good on ya keefer, stick to it man

Yes, that's true for someone his age, but there's still a benefit to stopping.

I don't know. I remember pictures of Ronnie with a vape several years ago (somewhere between 2012-2015) but I can't remember having seen recent ones.

No one has to smoke, or vape anymore. You have to wait a bit, like a half hour, but edibles is the way to go. Longer high, no quick come down.
