By the time Brian was 11 years old, he was already smoking close to a pack of cigarettes a day. In this video from CDC's Tips From Former Smokers campaign, he talks about how he smoked during his youth, marriage, and throughout his career in the Air Force. He had a heart attack at age 35 and spent months in hospital rooms.

Every time I light a cigarette I watch another one of these anti smoking ads

Unlike Truth, the CDC actually tries to convince smokers to stop smoking.

It should be mandatory for these to be on television

Smoking shouldn't be seen as Normal. It's not NORMAL, to play rusian roulett with your life, those who don't smoke should be addressed. Genuinely wish all the best to those who try , try to quit.

My mom told me when I was 15, if you decide to smoke you're buying your own cigarettes. Stopped me from even trying again.

Your awesome brian good thing your still alive

If smoking gave him a heart attack at 35, how come every smoker doesn't get a heart attack? You can't say something CAUSES something unless it happens to everybody who does it. It's not logical. This guy just has a bad heart.

Do you not have any teeth on top?

At the end, it looked like he was about to cry.

Bill started smoking as a teenager—and ignored his doctor's warning that smoking could make his diabetes much worse. In this emotional video from CDC's Tips From Former Smokers campaign, Bill explains how much his life changed. He quit smoking before he turned 40, but not before losing a leg, kidney function, and the sight in one eye. Bill died from heart disease at age 42.
