Father’s Day inspirations: quit smoking stories from dads*

For all the car rides, belly laughs, and life advice, dads everywhere deserve to be thanked. Especially, when they’ve committed to quit smoking. To celebrate these everyday supermen, read on for some of our favorite stories supporting What’s Your Why?™.

My 'why' is my wife and son. They are the reason I do anything. And they are the reason I need to quit smoking, as well, so that I can be here for them for many more years. My health is everything to them and they are everything to me. They make it worth it.

Quitting Smoking

My ‘why’ is my kids. After years of smoking I have realized that I want to be around to see my children succeed in their future and maybe see some grandkids.

My why is that my 7 year old son spent 7 days before Christmas in the children's ward…due to a super bad asthma attack. His asthma was aggravated by my wife and I smoking. I owe it to my family to live a happy, healthy and smoke free life

Help Someone Else Quit Smoking

18 years ago when I found out I was going to be a dad and have a son, I quit cold turkey and haven't had one since. I wanted to make sure I was around when he graduated high school!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       -   Jeff, Age 49

About a year and a half ago, my 6 year old boy came to me with tears in his eyes, saying he didn't want me to die from smoking.  Just like that, 21 years of smoking was done.  Nobody means more to me than my son, nobody!

I have two young children. My son is five and my daughter is five months. I need to be their example. I do not ever want them to see me smoking as they might think it's okay, and its not…Everyday my kids are my motivation, and my reason to never light up again…Quitting is hard but worth it, you'll feel amazing.
