Kristy is a 36-year-old truck driver from Tennessee. She smoked cigarettes to help pass time on the road. In this video from CDC's Tips From Former Smokers campaign, Kristy explains what happened when she came home in pain after one trip. She was rushed to the hospital, struggling to breathe. She thought she was going to die; her lung had collapsed. After surgery and a long recovery, she vowed never to smoke again.
