Text Messaging Program Helps Young Adults Quit Smoking
Many young adult smokers want to quit, though they do not always have the right information or the desire to call quit lines. The CO Quit Mobile system is an innovative and free text message-based quit smoking program, designed to give smokers instant support and coaching when it is needed, through their cell phones. The system is aimed at 18-24 year-olds, especially. You can help younger adults quit smoking now.
To register, a person goes to www.COQuitMobile.org and enters some information about him/herself and their smoking. This helps the system provide the best coaching along the way. The user is then able to prepare, make a plan, and start quitting with the assistance of the automated system.
The short messages are adjusted as smokers progress through the quitting process. Those with smartphones can take advantage of a companion app that provides them with additional tools to help during the quitting process.
The system is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and it provides up to 30 days of counseling to help smokers quit.
