"I have never smoked and I never will. My father used to smoke crap loads a day. Then, on New years eve, of the new millennium at 11:00pm he took his last puff....and he hasn't smoked since! The point is, it aint about being right or being wrong. It aint about being cool or being strong. It's all about being me....and being Māori. And thats why I (and my papa!) are proud to be smoke-free!!!"
