WV TOBACCO CESSATION QUITLINE SUCCESS STORIES
David from Berkeley County says "I have been tobacco free since August 29, 2016 and I just finished my final coaching session. I want to thank the Quit Line and especially Mandy for helping me get this far. Mandy certainly contributed to making the job of quitting easier and totally understood where I was in the process of not smoking. It was real pleasure of having her as my quit coach. She is a true asset to your organization".
A Quitline CSP recalls the following "I just got off the phone with a man who was a 4 Pack per day smoker when he enrolled with us. That’s 80 cigarettes per day!! Today he is SMOKE FREE!
“I am still tobacco free 34 months after being in the program. I am not ever going to pick them back up again, and I am currently making my truck payment with all the money I am saving from not buying cigarettes”.
From a CSP -She was just so happy that being in our program worked for her. She had been saving up her money from not smoking to be able to move (over $1000 so far). She said she doesn’t even think about smoking anymore. Definitely doesn’t ever want to smoke again! She was so happy and bubbly over her accomplishment and couldn’t thank us enough.
