How to quit smoking: Self-determination and love for oneself

 ”Binalik ko yung love ko sa sarili koAt kung love ko yung sarili ko, love ko rin yung surroundings ko.”

For the 53-year-old Emily Bulacan, who has been smoking for 26 years, it only took self-determination and love for herself to stop the habit.  Emily started smoking heavily at age 27, and although she does not consider herself as a chain smoker, she still consumed 15 cigarette sticks a day.
