Once I beat cigarettes on April 1, 2011, I walked away from a battle that I had fought my entire life. After smoking 2 packs a day for over 30 years, my confidence in what happened next was shaky in what the future held. Would this be the final time? Well it was, and my health and attitude has skyrocketed in a positive way. Since then, I've become an active, athletic, adventurer who has joined and completed Peace Corps Service, just as the start. If you are considering quitting, make this your time. There is so much to live for, once you give yourself a chance.
