Carole Anzolletti smoked her first cigarette when she was about ten years old, under a row of evergreens on a hill overlooking a farm in Ireland. A couple of years later she took a drag off a friends cigarette in her basement. After that, it was cigarettes that belonged to a neighbor. Then high school began, and the habit grew into full time. No one had any clue about how dangerous and tenacious the habit was; everyone was smoking. When she graduated high school and began art school, she had begun to loathe the pattern enough to start trying to quit. That process went on for another thirteen years. The Quit Smoking Express Series is a testament to her commitment to cultivating a unique perspective for prospective quitters.
