Oklahomans are utilizing free resources to quit tobacco their own way

OKLAHOMA CITY (August 6, 2018) – The July 1 cigarette and little cigar price increase has encouraged Oklahomans to quit, and thousands are reaching out to the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline, a program of the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET), for free services to help quit tobacco.

More homes will be smokefree at the end of this month when a federal rule takes effect. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development passed the rule earlier this year that makes most residences managed by public housing authorities smokefree by July 31.

In Oklahoma, roughly 104 public housing agencies administering low-income, conventional public housing across the state will implement the new rule that will protect residents, guests and employees from secondhand smoke.

Free resources available to tobacco users looking to quit their own way 

OKLAHOMA CITY (June 27, 2018) – If the July 1 cigarette and little cigar price increase has you thinking about quitting, reach out to the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline for FREE support.
