Improving adherence to nicotine gum by text support

2007 trial finds tailored texts can increase adherence to nicotine gum program.

In a 2007 trial using a different approach to smoking cessation text support, participants making a quit attempt were sent text messages to help them adhere to a proper nicotine gum dosing program. The trial found that those who received tailored text instruction reported chewing more nicotine gum than those who received standard support texts.
