Tito didn’t realize he was addicted until he tried to quit for the third time. After a friend was diagnosed with cancer, and he found out he was going to be a father again, he decided the risks to his health weren’t fair to his kids or his family. He used the patch to help him quit. Tito shared his story about why he quit to help motivate others to try to stop and to Make Smoking History.
