Leo, it looked odd, I can relate to that! At first, it caught my eye as well!
So, now you know that "to give smoking up" [not "smooking up"] is okay (no pun intended...).
Until you get the hang of it, when you write you always can write the way you feel comfortable with. When you feel confident enough, you can use this "new way". As for reading or listening, you know that it´s not wrong.
Thanks Telma for sharing with us, it´s a pity that I spent my share of votes of the day!
Good answer indeed!
