“I smoked cigarettes for 16 years and after at least 5 attempts at quitting I became successful with hard work and dedication. The 6th time was the charm and I’ve been smoke free since January 2008. My quitting partners was a my girlfriend from work and we have both been smoke free for 3 years.”
Congratulations, St. Louis.
