It's not often we hear such a compelling account about quitting smoking from someone so young. The fact is, most of us don't get serious about kicking nicotine addiction to the curb until we've given 20, 30, or 40 years of our lives to smoking. James is decades ahead of the game and it warms my heart to see it. Keep up the good work James, and thanks for sharing your story.

From James:
    "I started smoking as a very young teen. I had low self-esteem and despite knowing the dangers, I started smoking to fit in. It's a common story, played out the world over. For some reason, a rolled-up paper with tobacco and nicotine inside is supposed to make you popular, or confident, or cool. It doesn't."
