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.
