Michael's confidence boost

Sometimes we have unexpected benefits from quitting. For Michael, it gave him the courage to ask someone on a date!

Hi there. I have had low self esteem for most of my adult life. I stopped smoking 13 months ago. I asked a lady out to a movie. She said yes. I haven't asked someone to go to a movie for 10 months. Life is getting much better for me now I've stopped smoking. I've also stopped gambling as I have been an addict. So I have money to pay for a movie. Yay!
