Text support

Text support is an effective smoking cessation support which can increase quit smoking attempt success and save healthcare systems money.

Text messages can reach individuals wherever they are located, without them having to schedule time to seek support. Text support can also be interactive, providing individuals with extra support when they need it most.

A number of studies examining the effectiveness of text support programs have been published, and all of them have found that text support programs are effective at helping smokers in their quit attempts.
