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 $2.8 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 and resources for smoking cessation. Plus, it’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

When you call, you may be eligible to receive free nicotine patches, gum or lozenges, as well as free support from a trained Quit Coach. Quit Coaches teach you the benefits of quitting tobacco and steps to quit smoking, and they give you the encouragement and support you need on your journey to a tobacco-free life.

Freedom from smoking is just a phone call away.
