"I knew I wanted to quit and the Helpline coaching by phone worked perfectly because of my already busy schedule, my energetic toddler and being pregnant."

I started smoking when I was 13 years old. It was peer pressure and growing up in a home where someone smoked. I tried to quit several times on my own and did while I was pregnant with my first son, but then relapes. Sometimes you just don't realize how much smoking can harmothers, especially your children, until your doctor lays it out for you.

I did begin smoking again after Johnathon was born but decided my home would be a smokefree area for the health of my family. With the support of my family and my concern for my second baby's health during my pregnancy, I decided to quit for good. I knew I wanted to quit and the Helpline coaching by phone worked perfectly because of my already busy schedule, my energetic toddler and being pregnant.

The Helpline coach was very empathetic, listened to me and offered great advice on how to make it through the rough times while I was trying to quit. The coaching support for moms-to-be, combined with my quit plan and my children's health, has made my quit successful. I know that this time I have quit for good and that I will be a healthier mom and a healthier role model for my sons.
