Jon Bon Jovi Quit Smoking To Lower Insurance Rates

bandbonjovi 101609 Jon Bon Jovi Quit Smoking To Lower Insurance RatesLike many rock stars, [lastfm]Jon Bon Jovi [/lastfm]was never too far from his next cigarette. That is, until it just got too expensive. In a recent interview with Q, the singer admits that his insurance premiums as a smoker had grown so high that he was compelled to throw out his smokes and never look back.

“[I quit because of] the cold hard truth. I tried to get life insurance and the price with smoking was so ridiculous it was enough to piss you off and just throw them in the garbage,” he explains, adding, “I swore off them before the tour and I’m happy to say that I haven’t picked them up again.”

Bon Jovi reportedly picked up the habit unusually late in life, at age 32, while on the set of the 1994 feature Moonlight and Valentino. Jon and company are currently in the midst of their ongoing The Circle tour. They recently played the inaugural concert at the new Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
