It looks like President Obama is no longer sneaking cigarettes when the world isn’t looking.
The commander in chief is "tobacco free," his doctor said Monday in reporting the results of Obama's second physical since he took office.
The two-page report from Dr. Jeffrey Kuhlman gave the president a strong bill of health, describing him as a physically fit 50-year-old who eats healthy and "on occasion" drinks alcohol in moderation, the New York Times reports.
"The president is in excellent health and fit for duty," Kuhlman said. "All clinical data indicate he will remain so for the duration of his presidency."
It’s unclear when Obama officially kicked the habit. As the Guardian points out, when asked if he still smoked back in June 2009, the president said he was "95 percent cured" but confessed that "there are times when I mess up." When Obama had his last physical in February 2010, his doctors noted that he had not yet stopped smoking and had recommended that he continue "smoking cessation efforts."
