"My dad died from all smoking-related health issues. My mom is still alive, but has had open heart surgery due to her smoking. Unfortunately, I also have some smoking-related health issues: osteoporosis, polyps on my vocal chords, and COPD. This is my very first day and I feel really good and strong. I know I can do this. I know I deserve to do it."

"My dad had cancer two years ago from smoking cigarettes. It spread from his lungs to his pancreas, liver and brain. Thankfully he is alive but he still smokes. My mom had a heart attack three years ago due to smoking and she still does. And now it's all down to me. I'm 19 years old and have been smoking since I was 16, but it's so hard to quit and I wonder what will happen to me now?"

"I don't want my three daughters, husband or two grandchildren to have to go through watching me die of a horrible disease, in a horrible way! Thirty days without a cigarette, and many more days of living ahead! I couldn't be happier. :)"
