Be Successful

Success Stories - Albemarle County Employees

Quit smoking 1 year ago:  Melissa
 
How long were you a smoker? 
I smoked for about 17 years - other than during pregnancy.
 
What motivated you to quit?
There are so many motivators. Number one, my six-year-old son needs me. I also truly wanted to be healthy, inside and out.
 
How did you do it?
The main thing is that you have to want to quit. Nobody can make the decision for you.
 
 
 

 



Have a suggestion for a success story?

I’ve been taken off of two prescription medicines that I’ve been on for years...
