A personal story that i've read.

"Brian was good in health working and managing his infection with HIV the virus that can cause AIDS when smoking led to health problems that nearly killed him. At the age 43 years old he had blood clots in his lungs which gave him a stroke, and a surgery on an artery in his neck. That's what smoking did to him until he realize what the stroke did to him he finally knew that he needed to stop smoking for good."
