Gerard Butler’s cigarette nightmare!

Gerard Butler had to go through a lot to quit smoking…

…and then he stared again.

“I was smoking then I stopped for four years,” he said.

“It took me 40 attempts to stop. I was hypnotized 23 times, I had my veins injected with sodium pentathol had my ears electrolyzed and my hands lasered.

“About three months ago, I was out with some friends — Russell Crowe was one of them. There was 12 of them and 11 of them were smoking. That was it, I was off.

“It was only a month, it was a little blip. I’ve got to tell you, it was horrific.”

Sounds it!
