Megan is from Athens Georgia. She thinks she may have been trying to rebel just a bit when at age 14 she smoked that first cigarette. Instead, Megan would spend the next 14 years -- half of her entire life -- as nicotine's slave. She has tried breaking free four times, including using the nicotine patch and hypnosis. As you can see, each attempt ended the same.
