Thinking About Quitting

Quitting tobacco is the best thing you can do for your health and the health of those around you.

No matter how old you are or how long you've used tobacco, making the decision to be tobacco-free can help you live a longer, healthier life. Compared with those who keep smoking, people who quit before age 50 cut their risk of dying within 15 years in half. The benefits of quitting smoking include a higher quality of life and fewer illnesses like colds, flu, bronchitis and pneumonia. People who quit smokeless tobacco products also avoid health problems, save money and take back control of their lives. Once you become an ex-smoker, you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel.

The Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline is a free service for all Oklahomans that can help you achieve freedom from smoking. When you call 1-800-QUIT NOW or register online at www.OKhelpline.com, you’ll talk with a trained Quit Coach who has helped hundreds of people stop smoking. Together, you’ll create a plan just for you. Studies show smokers who use a quitline are four times more likely to stop smoking than if they try to quit on their own.
