Please share your story about tobacco with others. Your story could make a difference in your community and on your campus.

  • “How I quit.”
  • “Why I want to quit.”

Ashley Peters’s Tobacco Story

My brother and I were raised by my grandmother and mother, who were both smokers. From a young age, we were plagued with chronic respiratory health issues which now can be attributed to second hand smoke exposure, and, as adults, we’re both still dealing with those health impacts. We also lost our grandmother to emphysema and other smoking-related health issues when she was just 54. We both decided at that time to not repeat our family’s history of smoking, not just for ourselves, but for the health of our children.
