"The year I turned 40 I knew that I wanted to do something to make an impact on the rest of my life, so I decided to give up smoking."
"On June 9, 2008, I woke up in the morning and put a patch on instead of smoking, I went through all steps of the patches and that was it. I haven't had a cigarette since."
"I had been a smokeless tobacco user since my early teens. I started mainly to fit in or be cool and continued through my late 20s."
