Sue's Story

A trip to the hospital convinced this former tobacco user to finally quit for her health.

A trip to the hospital convinced this former tobacco user to finally quit for her health. She used to chew 7 cans of tobacco per week and smoke on top of that! Knowing she needed to quit smoking is what made her increase her use of chew tobacco, but the eventual yellowing of the teeth made her quit completely. What always concerned her most about quitting was potential weight gain because she usually distracted herself with snacking. Regardless, she has now been tobacco free since April 15th, 2010 and nicotine free since June 12th, 2010; she is extremely pleased with her success and is looking forward to a brighter future without tobacco. She shares with the coaches that she found the commercials very effective and appreciates the QuitLine very much.
