I grew up like any other kid in the 90's playing sports and living life. Both of my parents smoked for the longest time, my dad would take me out golfing with him to places that would be smoke filled for most of the night. I remember going home feeling disgusting. At some point, I had to quit playing major sports (soccer, basketball, football) because my asthma was so bad. It was really disappointing for me as I was an extremely competitive kid. When the bill in Ohio passed to ban smoking in public places, I couldn't have been happier. Long gone are the days where  we have to choose smoking or non-smoking section. 

Now as I've grown older my asthma is fine but I'm actually allergic to smoke. Anytime someone is smoking around me I start sneezing. It's crazy how we change. One thing I found interesting is asthma and allergies have become one of the largest problems for kids now. When I think back to when I was younger, I don't remember anyone having issues. 

As an entrepreneur and search engine optimization expert, I have become an affiliate for non-smoking products, quitting smoking products, and an advocate against anything smoke related. Myself and my consulting agency back local events to hopefully one day get rid of tobacco products. It's a good feeling as an adult and marketer to be able to make a difference in people's lives. Without ranking products with SEO and interacting with various customers over social media, I would not have met so many people who have been affected and have quit smoking. This not only helps them from a personal health and growth perspective but many don't realize how financially straining terrible habits like this have on their lives.
