A new approach to helping smokers quit.
SmartQuit® is an evidence-based* smoking cessation program that is 2-3 times more effective than trying to quit on your own and can be used with or without NRT. The program is delivered via a Smartphone app, so it is private, easy to use and always within reach.
How to get SmartQuit:
A lite version is free to anyone from the app store. However, with the full program, you will learn new ways to deal with the urge to smoke. Ask your employer, state, or health plan if they offer the full program. Many groups sponsor the full SmartQuit program as part of their benefits package or tobacco cessation program. You can also get the full version via an in-app purchase.
In a study, smokers who used the program were 2-3 times more likely to quit than trying to quit on their own. And, those who completed all the steps in this program were up to 10 times more likely to quit!
You can now offer SmartQuit as part of your smoking cessation, wellness, or benefits program. Visit our Smoking Cessation page.
How does it work?
SmartQuit delivers an 8 day program that is completed before your quit day and you also get up to 6 months of additional support, messages and tools to support success. SmartQuit uses an Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) approach to quitting that is different from other programs.
Before you quit: It starts with a plan! Using the app, you will create a personal quit plan. Each day for 8 days you will unlock a new exercise that teaches you a new way to think about your urges or cravings. At first, you are asked to become aware of your urges to smoke. Later, you'll learn and practice new ways to think about those urges so that you notice the urge to smoke without acting on it. Practice these skills before you quit for best results. The app will continue to support your efforts with customized messages, tips and tools through your quit day and beyond. You'll have access for a full 6 months.
Listen to Dr. Bricker's talk about the approach behind SmartQuit.
Chosen for a Washington Life Sciences Discovery Fund Grant, 2Morrow is conducting a pilot study looking both at real world distribution models and evidence-based improvements. Additional collaborations with researchers at Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center are currently planned in the areas of smoking cessation and weight loss.
"I want to quit because I have young children who have asthma and allergies. I needed a program that was quick and easy to use. SmartQuit is that and more - even my daughter likes the exercises. I am making friends with the urge monster."
