Smoking for 30 years
For most of the past 30 years, Cynthia has been a smoker…even continuing to light up after watching her father die of lung cancer.
At one point, Cynthia actually quit smoking for four years. "What I learned in quitting for four years is I'm always going to be a smoker," she says. "I had that one cigarette after four years, and it was back as if it had never stopped before. I'm finding it very hard to stop now."
