Charlie Sheen has a reason to celebrate Independence Day that has nothing to do with America.
The 54-year-old actor from “Two and a Half Men” announced on Twitter that he was celebrating a year ago that he had quit smoking in a message to his lungs.
“dear @ my lungs, a year ago TODAY, I quit smoking! hashtag – YOU ARE WELCOME!” started his tweet.

The actor’s tweet also included an admission of regret that he never picked up a cigarette in the first place.
“If I could go back in time and NEVER BEGIN, I would absolutely do it! If you are about to quit smoking, believe me; the sooner the better! 4th happy!” Sheen concluded with a photo of a cigarette.
Last December, Sheen reached two years of sobriety. Months before, he had revealed on “Jay Leno’s Garage” what had led him to lead a sober life.

“About a year and a half ago, it just seemed like I knew it was time to make a change – and you know, it didn’t require a crazy rehab or shootout with the cops . It didn’t require anything super dramatic and crazy and front-page, “he told Leno at the time.
He had previously stated on ITV’s “Loose Women” that his children were a big reason behind his new own lifestyle.
