New Text Messaging Program for Young Adult Cessation

Many young adults who smoke have the desire to quit, but do not always have the right information or resources. The CO Quit Mobile system is an innovative and free text message based cessation program designed for an 18-24 year-old population.

CO Quit Mobile sends messages that are specific to the user and their smoking habits in order to provide the best coaching available. The user is then able to prepare, make a plan and start the quitting process with support. Those with smartphones can take advantage of a companion app that provides additional tools for help. The system is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and it provides up to 30 days of counseling.
