Hollywood hunk Johnny Depp is making efforts to give up smoking, after years of indulging his habit.

The father-of-two is gradually weaning himself off nicotine, although his publicists still arrange cigarette breaks for him whenever he's doing hours of press interviews.

He says, "I'm starting to get the better of the habit. One has to make the conscious decision to get hold of the habit that's had you for so long."
