Willie Nelson Says He Has Quit Smoking

Willie Nelson Says He Has Quit Smoking.

The 86-year-old cites breathing and health problems as the main reasons.

I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days and I have to be careful, Willie Nelson, to CNN affiliate KSATย .

This past August, Nelson delayed a music tour over issues with his breathing.

He soon resumed the tour and has no plans to stop performing.

I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever.

I don't smoke anymore -- take better care of myself, Willie Nelson, to CNN affiliate KSATย .

Nelson has long supported marijuana legalization and the use of industrial hemp.

In 2015, he started his own line of cannabis called "Willie's Reserve."
