Transcript for Dale Earnhardt Jr. discusses how he quit smoking
Earnhardt Jr. With us again. Show you something personal to him. The challenge of quitting I know you're working with our sponsor, Nicorette on a new you smoked for how long. 15 years, yeah. 15 years. I did. It was really hard to quit. I spoked -- I got up to a pack and a half a day and I've been smoke-free or a nonsmoker for over six years now and it's something I kept from a lot of friends of mine and obviously I kept it hidden from fans and partnered up with Nicorette, really excited to be able to teach them about this new product, the lozenges we have and want to take them on a taste test drive if you will and try to help everybody on their quit journey. You're going one other step. You have this digital series. Yeah, absolutely. That's the taste test drive and we want to invite people to take a look at that. We'll release a lot of videos on our social over the next several days to showcase some of the things we've been doing to try to help smokers through their quit journey. It's great you're speaking up about this. I know it was personal to you and because of your job, not something you could really easily share so thank you. My pleasure. It is a struggle. Means a lot to be able to try to help somebody quit. I know how hard it is. It almost feels impossible. I failed many times. There is no magic trick to make it happen but if I had this tool in my toolbox back in the day it would have made this process a lot easier.
