Mike, a husband, father, grandfather, veteran, social worker, and artist, to name a few things about him, has smoked since he was 12 years old.
And he talks about how he quit smoking after more than 50 years: his attitude along the way, the ups and downs of his journey and tips that every smoker can benefit from.
As we discussed in the video, Mike retired to paint and replaced smoking with painting. You can see more of his fine art here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001794672074
