  1. "Was it difficult? Hell yeah," wrote Sumona
  2. "But now my body rejects smoke," she added
  3. "Can't stand in a room where people are smoking," she also said

The Kapil Sharma Show actress Sumona Chakravarti marked two years of not smoking with a powerful post on Instagram, in which she also shared her experience of how she kicked the habit. "Two years ago! The week following a dear friend's b'day... I quit. Simply went cold turkey. No nicotine patch, no vape. Nothing. Haven't touched since then. Was it difficult? Hell yeah. But now my body rejects smoke. Can't stand in a room where people are smoking anymore." She cited a quote by John Green to say: "It is so hard to leave-until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world."

In her note, Sumana explained that the reason for her writing this note is to infuse a "dose of reality" into the world of social media. She also hopes to inspire people to quit smoking with her post: "Why am I sharing this? Because being an actor is a part of my life. People follow us. Like us. Love us. Criticise us. Admire us. Hopefully with this I can inspire a few. The most important reminder being we are all flawed human beings which is quite non-existent on social media. So here's a small dose of reality."
