We owe a lot to our mothers. They make huge sacrifices to provide for their kids. However, thousands of moms across Oklahoma are dealing with an extra challenge. For these moms, battling nicotine addiction can be stressful and emotional.
Everyone knows moms are tough. They have the strength to quit tobacco, plus they have access to FREE services from the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline.
Here is the amazing story of an Oklahoma mother winning the fight against tobacco.
Brandi’s Quit Journey
Brandi was a longtime tobacco user who smoked while driving around town or running errands. One day she noticed her son coughing each time she lit a cigarette. Afterwards, Brandi promised herself to hold off on smoking while around her son — whether it was inside the car or out, then her son asked her point-blank if she would quit.
Hearing those words were a wake-up call for Brandi. By this point, she was smoking around two packs per day. She decided the only way forward was to quit. That’s when she contacted the Helpline.
What’s her life been like since quitting tobacco? Breathtaking. “I never thought I could run and exercise — but since I quit smoking, we go to the park and run around and go swimming. The health benefits are amazing,” she said.
