Brett started smoking when he was 16 to impress a pretty girl. By his midthirties, he had gum disease, which is a danger for all smokers. The tissues and bones holding Brett's teeth in place were breaking down. In this video from CDC's Tips From Former Smokers campaign, Brett talks about his addiction to cigarettes. Even after surgery to pull out 16 teeth, Brett was still smoking. As for the pretty girl, "I don't remember her name," says Brett, who now wears dentures.
