Justin Bieber shocked fans, when he was pictured sucking on a pacifier, but just as some suspected, an addiction specialist tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the sucker could be helping the ‘Company’ singer quit smoking. Get all the details here!
Justin Bieber looks funny sucking on a pacifier, but he might be the one having the last laugh because an addiction expert tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that doing so could help him quit smoking! How amazing.
“Sometimes when people are trying to quit smoking cigarettes, they need to replace it with something else that involves the mouth. For instance, I have a client right now who can’t smoke cigarettes or do vape, so now he is chewing tobacco — anything to get the oral fixation, the hand to mouth movements. It’s having something in your mouth. Some people use toothpicks, candy, Nicorette lozenges, anything they can have in their mouth to distract them,” Marty Brenner, Registered Addiction Specialist tells HollywoodLIfe.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“I have had a lot of eclectic clients over the years and I have never heard of someone using a pacifier to get their oral fixation met, but it’s possible. Either that or Justin is trying to start a new fashion trend,” he adds.
This is very interesting. It’s not clear if Justin’s sucking on the pacifier for anti-smoking purposes, but if he is, more power to him! Smoking is so bad for you. We certainly hope he quits doing it.
And if the 22-year-old is just trying to start a new trend, it won’t be one we’ll be participating in. We outgrew our pacifiers years ago!
