Dave smoked for over 20 years, it became a part of his daily routine and habits. But when Dave and his partner decided to have a family, it spurred him on to quit, not just for him but for his daughter. Dave shares with us his tips for quitting, such as using medication and other NRT products and how it's helped him to stay smokefree.
