- Re: Commercial tanning salons not the culprit (letter of the day)
- It was first thing she did every morning and the last thing she did at night. For over 30 years Valerie Warren loved her cigarettes and smoked well over a pack a day. But that’s all behind her now. On August 9th, 2010, Valerie Warren quit smoking. “It’s the best thing I’ve ever done,” says Warren, “I’ve never felt better, physically and I am much calmer now. I always felt stressed because I was constantly thinking about having that next cigarette. I don’t have any of that anymore and it basically makes you feel like you’re free.”
