It gets harder and harder to quit
Chip's college roomate gave him that first fateful cigarette. It was while tailgating before the Ball State vs. South Carolina football game in 1998. Not only would the U.S.C. fighting Gamecocks lose their next 21 straight football games, Chip would find himself a slave to smoking nicotine.
A pack-a-day smoker of a Philip Morris brand called "Basic," Chip has repeatedly tried to quit smoking and failed.
