Arjun on how he manages to distract himself from the urge to smoke

In the same conversation, Arjun revealed that he has been smoking since he was 15, and he, who was an occasional drinker, has also stopped drinking as well. He mentioned that whenever the urge to smoke comes, he used to distract himself with other things and added:

“When I get the urge to smoke, I distract myself with other things. Even meditation has helped. Taking a clean break from smoking is the way to go as smoking does take a toll on your health. I am putting in the effort and this is just the beginning. I hope to cross the 28 day milestone as they say if you don’t smoke for 28 days at a stretch then you have quit. I’m going to definitely avoid places which might affect my resolve.”

When Arjun Bijlani opened up on his decision of almost aborting his first child

In 2022, Arjun and his wife, Neha was also seen participating in the Star Plus' reality show, Smart Jodi. In one of the show's episodes, the couple had bared their hearts out to reveal their deepest secret when he had decided to abort his first child because of financial issues. In the same episode, an emotional Arjun was seen narrating the incident from his first year of marriage. It was then when Neha got pregnant, but he had no work, and due to his low bank balance, he was not in a position to take responsibility for a child then. So, Arjun had made up his mind and tried convincing his wife, Neha, to abort the child. Arjun shared that she cried a lot but agreed in the end. He had shared:

"Humari shaadi jab hui, 1 saal hi hua tha jab humein pata chala ki she’s pregnant. Wo 1-1.5 saal hai na main kaam nahi kar raha tha us time par. To obviously bachche ki ek bahut badi responsibility hoti hai, to hum us cheez ko aage nahi le jate. Fir ye maani-royi, merko bhi ajeeb ho raha tha but finally maine soch liya tha kyunki mere account mein us time Rs 40,000-50,000 bache the, main kya hi bachcha karta yaar. Hum pahuche hospital ki hum nahi karenge use."
