    Mark Wahlberg wants you to know that he's no longer smoking marijuana.

    When he accepted Variety's Indie Impact Award during the Palm Springs Film Festival on Sunday, he joked that the trophy resembled a bong.

    "But I don't use those anymore," he quickly added, before explaining what made him quit getting high for good...

    "I stopped smoking weed for my kids," he said on stage at the Parker Palm Springs Sunday morning. "One day, we were driving and you could smell it from somewhere. My daughter asked what the smell was so I told her it was a skunk.

    "Then she said, 'Sometimes Daddy smells like that!' to me and my wife. So I knew I had quit," he explained.

    The Fighter star and family guy also said that instead of partying every weekend, he now attends church instead.

    Quite a turnaround! Can I get an amen?
