We all know smoking is injurious to health but do we pay enough heed to it? Almost every New Year resolution of a smoker is to quit smoking, but how many of them really resolve to not pick up the stick? Even after the warning written on every cigarette packet "Smoking causes throat cancer", a smoker doesn't shy away from buying it.
One such person is Mumbai-based Aashish Mehrotra, who shared a Snapchat story on his Twitter page, which has gone viral for all the right reasons. He explains why he is quitting smoking and you should too.
Reportedly, Mehrotra lost a family friend to cancer though the person didn't smoke but he has decided not to make it easy for cancer.
Sitting in a hospital to donate platelets, Mehrotra shares his story. (Source: Twitter)
