Darlene's Story

I have smoked for over 30 years. I started at age 17. I thought when I got married I could do what I wanted. That was the biggest mistake. I have quit and gone back more times than I can think of. I was sitting on my sofa crocheting and smoking while watching TV. I dropped the cherry of my cigarette. It went down my shirt and burned me. I wanted to quit. The pills didn’t work. While at my sister’s talk, I was told about the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline. I called right then. It took two weeks to get the patches. I also used gum. I am 50 years old, and I feel so much better than when I was smoking two packs a day. Thank you Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline. I couldn’t have done it without you. I quit December 1st.
