Year quit: 1991
Brian began smoking in high school as a social thing and it eventually became a habit. He tried quitting many times, but it was not until New Years of 1991 that Brian did finally kick the habit for good. He knew it was bad when he constantly craved a cigarette - he said it felt like a drug addiction.
