Tobacco Use Prevention
TSET is committed to reducing the leading causes of preventable death in Oklahoma — cancer and cardiovascular disease. Tobacco is a major risk factor for both, costing Oklahoma $1.62 billion in direct healthcare costs each year. Our mission is to help prevent and reduce tobacco use in our state.
Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline
TSET funds the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline (OTH), a free phone and web-based service that offers quit coaching and free patches, gum and lozenges to Oklahomans. Since 2003, OTH has helped more than 275,000 Oklahomans with their tobacco cessation efforts, saving an estimated $18 million each year in direct medical costs.
