Cortney used to steal her mom's Virginia Slims at age 14 but now is forced to steal $1,368.75 of her own money each year in order to service her 30 cigarette per day addiction.
"I wanted to look cool, I wanted that edge," Cortney recalls. But trying to look cool was quickly replaced with trying to stay obedient to an endless stream of powerful urge and crave commands to find and smoke more nicotine. Cortney has failed at 5 serious quitting attempts. She knows that with each additional puff her mind's psychological smoking baggage grows heavier. Her message is simple, if toying with nicotine "Quit Now!"
