Guri Weinberg blogs about quitting smoking, Robert Pattinson & his charity campaign

Guri Weinberg has a couple of announcements over at his official blog. 1) He’s quitting smoking, thanks to one Robert Pattinson. 2) He’s channeling the GFYS following into something charitable!

Guri realized with his GFYS phonomenon (see his blog post here for more explanation), he might be able to use it for good and not evil. So he has set up a charity campaign where t-shirts will be sold (an example above) and the proceeds will go to different charitable organizations. You can get more information and buy an awesome shirt at GFYS4Charity! The current organization to benefit from proceeds is Children of the Night.

On Breaking Dawn, I would generally find Rob Pattinson already smoking when I’d go outside to sneak a few puffs in. We would generally start chatting about whatever, he’d get fired up about whatever we were discussing and he would then generally finish his cigarette and ask for one of mine. He’d light another one and we’d keep talking. Then I’d light another one. We would chain smoke if there was a long enough break on set. I hate to say that’s how we got to know each other but that’s how we got to know each other. As shooting went on, I was smoking a LOT. Getting sick, looking tired, yada, yada, yada. So, I started my daily rant that my wife is ALL too familiar with through many attempts to quit – ” I gotta stop smoking”.

Read more here of how Rob teased Guri shamelessly until Guri decided to quit smoking for good.

    Go Guri for quitting for good! Btw, I want that t-shirt. And I really hope that the GFYS phenomenon will be on the behind-the-scenes thing of a DVD!

    1 week ago, i was diagnosed with emphysema. yes, due to too many years of smoking. my father was diagnosed with emphysema several years ago. he's likely not going to live much longer. my nieces grandmother has lung and throat cancer and conjestive heart failure (due to smoking). soon she will be going for chemo and MAY not survive the first treatment. if YOU smoke, YOU WILL DIE from it if YOU DO NOT QUIT! @AYANA:)
