Eléonore (19 year) - Nationality: Francaise - September 17, 2000

"For me, it was easy to quit smoking, because I smoked a lot during just one year, when I prepared a very hard exam for my studies. I stopped to smoke during the holidays: I came out of the swimming pool and thought: Eleonore, you have to choose between sports and smoke. During the year, I haven't time to run or make some sports. When I tried to run after smoking, it was terribly difficult for me to breath. I didnt manage to run or to bike. And I knew, smoking is bad for my health. I can't give any advice to people on how to quit smoking. I believe that when you really want to quit, you can do it, even if you have smoked for ten or twenty years. My solution is sports (I like sports). Young people who begin to smoke in parties should be careful: a lot of young people begin without realizing what it really means. I believe that today, you are not forced to do like everybody else to become somebody. "
