Sami had been smoking since he was 18. When he married at 27, his wife begged him to stop but he wouldn’t listen. Holding his son for the first time he decided he had to quit. So he did. But after a year he was back again.
When his wife was going to have her second baby she reminded her husband how he had quit because of his son. “Do this for your daughter” she said.
Sami has not touched a cigarette since that day. But he does tease his wife about how many children they will have to have.
