Benefits of Quitting Smoking
Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death and disease in the United States. For every person who dies from tobacco use, another 20 suffer from at least one serious tobacco-related illness. Plus, tobacco use is costly. It costs Oklahomans over $3.7 billion annually in medical expenses and lost productivity.
The reasons to quit smoking are clear. If you or a loved one is trying to quit any form of tobacco, the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline provides non-judgmental support, as well as tobacco-cessation resources and tips to quit smoking. Plus, it’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When you call the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline, you will receive free support from a trained Quit Coach™ and may be eligible to receive free nicotine patches, gum or lozenges. Quit Coaches teach you the benefits of quitting smoking, and they give you the encouragement and support you need on your journey to a tobacco-free life.
