Year quit: 2009
Mike first tried to quit in 1994 because he had a heart attack, but only 8 weeks later Mike began to smoke again. He was more committed to smoking than to quitting. In 2009, Mike had a stroke. After his doctor’s plead for him to quit, it wasn’t until the look on his son’s face did he know it was time – Mike did whatever it took to quit. He credits his quit attempt to Wellbutrin, which prevented him from failing this time around
