Throwing Out the Cigarettes

It has been more than three weeks since KTRE began following two East Texans who were trying to quit smoking.

Kim Iribarren and Steve Halsell quit smoking on the Great American Smoke-Out.

That weekend, Kim began smoking again. She has been trying to cut back, but it has been difficult. She has been smoking a pack a day for several years now.

Steve hadn't smoked a cigarette until this week. He says with some last minute work deadlines, he has smoked a little. While it has been a little set back, he says he will not let smoking beat him.
