Dale's Story: Finding the courage to quit smoking

Dale, 52, smoked for 35 years and tried to quit many times, using every method he could think of. He signed up for a smoking cessation class and gained the courage and the tools he needed.

"(Smoking) was the one that was always there. If I was sad or mad or lonely or afraid or happy, I could smoke. There was a fear of giving that up. I've conquered something that was killing me inside and out."
