"I called the Helpline and the coaches were very helpful. They offered tips and did everything they could to help me be successful."

I started smoking when I was 14 years old. I tried many times to quit. I was down to less than a pack, at the most about a pack-a-day, but couldn’t just quit. I also felt like the tobacco industry knew when to send me a coupon to get me to buy another pack or carton. My wife has been quit for three years, and they were still sending her coupons.

Finally, when a high school friend discovered she had mouth cancer, I decided I had to quit. I called the Helpline and the coaches were very helpful. They offered tips and did everything they could to help me be successful. The Helpline is a great thing! Now I ride my bike every day for 10 to 15 miles and I have much more lung capacity.
