Former Israel Ambassador to Kenya the musician Gilad Millo was the ‘Feel Good Friday’ guest on TV47’s ‘Morning Cafe‘. He updated his fans on what he has been up to and how he kicked a smoking habit.
Gilad and his family contracted Covid-19, an experience he terms as “very traumatising.” He remembers thinking about his South African friend who suffered complications after the virus spread to his lungs after testing positive. Thankfully, his family recovered fully.
The 49-year-old revealed that he quit cigarette smoking after 32 years. He had no intentions of stopping until he went visiting his mother in Israel who asked him to attend a rehabilitation class which she had paid for.
“The classes made me realise that my addiction was not because I was of weak personality. This is a drug that is more addictive than cocaine and they make it in a way that you become addicted to it so that they can make money and suck life out of you,” he said
“I quit cigarettes eight hours after the class. On May 18, 2018, at 3:00 pm I smoked my last cigarette and that was it…”
Gilad, who is also a farmer, talked about his 20 years music career revealing that he performs all genres of music including reggae and rock although he’s popularly known for love songs.
