Lauren's Story

When I decided I wanted to quit smoking I showed my daughter, who was 4 at the time, what smoking does to your body. When I wanted to smoke really badly, I always asked her why I was quitting smoking. The Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline really helped me quit. The counselors were available to talk to me when I was feeling like I was going crazy. I kept telling myself that if I smoked one cigarette then I would buy a pack, and then I would be up to over a pack every day.

Now, I am in my last semester of nursing school, and every time I turn around there is another disease that smoking causes. Tobacco has ABSOLUTELY NO HEALTH BENEFITS! Quitting smoking was the hardest thing I have ever done, but without help I would have never been able to do it.
