TURLINGTON: In my life, there are
two people in my family who
have quit smoking.
Me and my dad.
For me it took seven years. Nothing worked.
When I finally did quit for good, I knew it was one of the biggest accomplishments of my life.
My dad, it was different for him. He stopped December 1996, just six months before he died
from lung cancer.
