              •  quit - "'I simply love to smoke,' the tall and striking former model conceded to shoppers who paused to listen as Neal spoke Saturday at Bloomingdale's in New York City's midtown. 'But you have to stop doing it or you stand a greater risk of dying. For me, quitting is my greatest personal accomplishment. The number of women who die every year because of it is just staggering.' Through a program called Circle of Friends, which calls for smokers to surround themselves with a cast of friends and loved ones to quit, Neal has been smoke-free for more than two years. Her appearance at Bloomingdale's lent star power to the group's effort to sign up participants for its scheduled run/walk June 11 in Central Park. Neal distinctly recalls how she became a chain smoker who breezed through at least two packs of cigarettes a day. 'I was a teen model living in Japan,' she says. 'We would work, work, work and they wouldn't let us eat anything. The only thing they would allow was a long break to smoke.' Neal says she has tried 'millions of times' in the past to quit smoking. She credits the main link in her Circle of Friends, fiancé and Irish model Marcus Fitzgerald, for helping her fend off nicotine fits", The Jersey Journal, May 6, '05
