Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has kicked his drug addictions and been alcohol-free for more than two years, but now he's battling to quit one final vice: cigarettes. He made the promise to his girlfriend, producer Sally Humphreys, at the beginning of the year but has struggled to follow through on it. “Ronnie has really tried to knock the smoking on the head but it’s one sacrifice too far,” says a friend. "He told Sally he was going to give it his best shot, but it just wasn't to be. He's done amazingly well removing alcohol and drugs from his life and cigarettes are the only vice he has left." Wood told reporters last November that he was planning to kick the habit, but was recently spotted in Paris with a cigarette in hand as he left a rehearsal. It remains unclear whether or not he's still in the process of quitting.
