Debi Austin Anti Smoking Advocate Passes Away At 62
This is Deborah "Debi" Austin. She was the lady who smoked through a hole in her throat and talked about smoking being addictive. Remember her? I know I do!
"They say nicotine isn't addictive." She says right before taking a drag!
Here's the best part of her thought process prior to agreeing to do the commercial which I found on laist.com:
"Do I want to stand up in front of the entire state and tell them that I lost my voice because I couldn't control my addiction? I don't think so."
When I read that, I knew it had to part of my blog. That's the whole purpose of my book, How To Stop Smoking Without Killing Anyone. It's to get control of your addiction. I hated being under the influence of a controlled substance and that I literally had to schedule my day, my week, my LIFE around cigarettes. Fuh-get-about-it!
I took back control and believe or not, so did Debi. She died in the non-smoking section. Below is a video where you can see her warrior spirit and her valor. She was a 2-3 pack a day smoker who started when she was 13. While living with cancer for 20 years, Debi became a person who, in her cut short life, courageously and selflessly saved countless lives and inspired a multitude to take back control of their addiction. Make sure you watch the whole thing because the end is the most powerful part.
