Mel Gibson has quit smoking for the sake of his newborn baby daughter.
The one-time chain smoker is convinced he has kicked his nicotine habit once and for all - but it wasn't easy.
The Braveheart star explains, "The first three days, you’re an axe murderer. On day four you might take a bat to someone. Day five? You’re OK."
And his decision to quit smoking has had immediate health benefits: "I've lost five pounds and I can breathe all the way out."
Gibson's baby girl, Lucia, was born in October (09).
