Hey Maureen, I think he does smoke...I think that he said that he gave up every addiction but that one...I may be wrong, but I think he does.

I'm asking because i just saw a pic of Jon and Richie, and Richie had a cigarette in his mouth. When he talks, Richie does have a "raspy" sound to his voice like a smoker does. Thanks Ginni!

Hi, Maureen :)
I think He does.
At the end of the Livin' On Prayer PV, I saw RICHIE was holding a cigarette.
Maybe sometimes?

Yeah, I agree...his voice many years ago was not that raspy and you get that from years of smoking. It doesn't sound like a raspy voice from singing too much, it sounds like a constant raspy voice.

Maureen - remember the video clip of Richie outside of the airport on one of their breaks? The photographer tried to ask him about rehab and Richie was trying to be nice about not answering? Anyway - I am pretty sure he was smoking in that clip. He might have quit because of his dad but he has to have some vice during rehab.

He had a drink in his hand if that's the same clip I'm thinking of...coffee. I don't think he had a cig in his hand but maybe I'm thinking of another clip.

Thanks all for your input. I'm guessing he is/was a smoker. I sure hope that if he does smoke he quits. I'm sure watching his father suffer through lung cancer opened up his eyes. But, being around Jon and Tico can't help him if he still smokes.

I'm pretty sure he only had a cup of some kind in his hand. I'm thinking it looked like coffee. I'll do some digging and see if I can find it.

I don't remember when but I saw (I think the official LH DVD) Tico had a cigarette,Richie walked to Tico's place and them the camera left him, I thought it is because he went for Tico's cigarette and they decided not to show Richie smoking... I am pretty sure he does, anyway...

I just read a transcript from a Live Chat with Richie Sambora dated 6-11-96 where he was asked if he smoked cigarettes and Richie said no that he quit when he was a kid...so I guess that's the answer. Just google...does Richie Sambora smoke cigarettes and then look for the live chat...actually the chat was pretty interesting and funny!

He was smoking cigarettes during the Crush promo shots and I know someone who saw him outside his hotel on the Have a Nice Day tour in 2005 smoking so he might have said he gave it up in 1996 but he was smoking in 2000 and 2005.
