After smoking for over 35 years, Fredrick decided to quit and called the California Smokers' Helpline for assistance. He has remained smoke-free since July 2008 and breathes easier and feels healthier.
Frederick encourages all those who are thinking about quitting not to give up. "Quitting smoking is hard but well worth it. Don't give up!"
