It hasn’t been easy but it’s been four years since Janus del Prado smoked his last cigarette.
The actor, well-loved for his “sidekick” roles, took to Instagram to share the fourth anniversary of being smoke-free.
“Madaming mangyayari sayo physically and psychologically. Tataba ka sobra, magsisink ka into depression, etc. But still, I’m glad I did it. Kahit puff or yung rason na ‘pag inuman lang’ di ko ginawa,” he said.
Janus continued to share that while his smoker friends tried to tempt him to get back into the habit, the choice was still his if he’s “marupok.”
The 36-year-old gave himself a pat on the back, expressing how proud he was of himself and encouraged his friends and followers that if he can do it, they can do it, too.
“Kung kaya ko. Kaya niyo rin. But yun nga lang dun tayo sa totoo. Hindi siya madali. Labyu guys,” he ended.
Under his post, netizens congratulated him for these four year-long feat and even shared their successes and struggles with quitting the vice.
“So proud of you kuya hindi kasi talaga madali mag stop. Akala lang nila pero napakahirap,” a netizen wrote.
