I work in a dental office.  Today I had a patient (41 year old male) come into the office.  One of the first things he told me is that he quit chewing tobacco,  a habit that he has had for at least 25 years.  The main reason he quit is because of the price.  He stopped cold turkey in April of this year, and although he has gained some weight-he feels great!  He did mention that he wished he didn’t put on the extra pounds, but that has been the only drawback to quitting.  We also talked about how the  Stampede can no longer  give out free samples, and he was very supportive of that.  Even though he has been a tobacco user for many years and always enjoys the Stampede, he was concerned that the free samples were landing in the hands of kids.  He has three boys, and he would never want them to start using tobacco.  This story made my day!!!!
