About M-Power

Tobacco Kills Oklahomans

Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the US. For every person who dies from tobacco use, another 20 suffer with a least one serious tobacco-related illness. Tobacco use kills more Oklahomans than alcohol, auto accidents, HIV/AIDS, suicides, murders, and illegal drugs combined. Tobacco use is a major contributing risk factor for the four leading causes of death in Oklahoma – heart disease, stroke, cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.


    The SoonerQuit program was developed through a grant with the Oklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) and focuses on promoting and increasing access to tobacco cessation benefits and the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline (1-800-QUIT-NOW). SoonerQuit staff assist providers with integrating best practices and offer technical assistance related to tobacco cessation.
