A photo of Megan sitting in a beach chair while holding a cigarette and a sign which reads, 'When I started smoking it was just to try it. One day you wake up and your addicted. I wish I never tired that first cigarette. I was hooked at 14.  Megan'

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.
