Whoopi Goldberg's joy at quitting smoking

The Ghost star is a longtime tobacco lover but vowed to give up cigarettes for the sake of her health, and she has been keeping her followers on Twitter.com page updated with her battle since earlier this month (Sep12).

After several failed attempts to avoid smoking for 24 hours, Goldberg announced on Monday (17Sep12) that she has now gone several days without nicotine - and she's already feeling the benefits, including an increased appetite.

In a series of posts on the microblogging website, the actress writes, "Ok I'm at work, NOT only have I eaten the building, I eaten (sic) everyone in the building, no cigg (cigarettes) the last few days, & im (sic) ok with it... I feel like I am HUGE clearly a new feeling... NOT!! Like I'm hatching SOMETHING but I can't see it, like I'm actually happy I quit... TRUE."
