Meanwhile in Louisville, Kentucky, Wirth celebrates his quit day at Churchill Downs where the former jockey once rode in the Kentucky Derby. Both men begin dealing with the withdrawal symptoms that plague quitting attempts. "Withdrawal symptoms are really difficult and they really get bad the first 3 weeks after you stop smoking", according to Dr. Richard Hurt, Director of the Mayo Clinic, Nicotine Dependence Center and EX Plan advisor for the anglers. "Once you get beyond the first 3 weeks it gets better, but during those first 3 weeks we can help with some medication to help with the withdrawal symptoms". Will our anglers use the medication or rely on their resolve? Only on EX Plan.
