Chito Miranda took to social media to share the reason why he quitted smoking. In a Facebook post, Chito relayed that he was in grade six when he began to smoke. 

"Subok subok lang para cool kunyari. Tapos medyo dumalas nung 2nd year highschool dahil kay Buwi hehe! Magtatago kami sa gilid ng chapel sa tabi ng bahay nila tapos magyoyosi lang kami dun habang nagkukwentuhan. Pagpatong ng 3rd year highschool, nagsimula na akong bumili ng sarili kong pack at mag-yosi araw araw. Dun na nagtuluy-tuloy. That was 1992," he wrote in his post. 

Chito admitted that he could not perform well before without puffing a cigarette. "Sa katunayan (at alam ng mga kabanda ko 'to, pati ng mga sound engineers namin), na di ko kayang kumanta ng maayos ng hindi naka-yosi. Ang normal process namin during recording was, kakanta muna ako paulit-ulit para aralin yung kanta at yung delivery ng vocals, and once alam ko na kung paano ko gusto kantahin yung song, mag-yoyosi ako sandali, tapos pagbalik ko sa vocal booth, sakto na yung timpla at quality ng boses ko," he posted.

According to the Parokya ni Edgar vocalist, he decided to quit his bad habit when he started to have a family. "Kinasal ako and started a family. Tinigil ko ng todo ang paninigarilyo nung pregnant si Neri kasi ayoko ma-contaminate yung baby namin hehe! And nung lumabas si Miggy, nag-decide ako to live as healthy as possible, kasi gusto ko ma-alagaan ng todo ang pamilya ko hanggang sa pagtanda,” he stated. 

He confessed that it was difficult to perform initially without smoking. "Pero pinanindigan ko at sinanay ko yung sarili ko na kumanta nang hindi naka-yosi. Eventually, nasanay din ako, at ayun...pangit pa rin boses ko. Wala naman yatang nakapansin hahaha," he wrote.aa
