"I thought 36 taking the pledge was sensational, a fine percentage lo make the move tor such a hard habit to said Miller, who stopped smoking 20 years ago al the age of 25.

"The ages of the 10 who stuck it out ranged from 22 to 63 and included two women. When the year ended, they came into my office and signed a certificate that they had not smoked.
