Reviewer: Groton Adolescent Substance Abuse Prevention (GASP) Coalition, USA
Review: “QuitSTART is an interactive quit guide for teens that delivers cessation and mood-management tips, tracks cravings, and monitors quit attempts. “With 75% of teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17 owning a cellphone, there is immense potential for mobile technologies to affect health awareness and behaviour change among teens,” said Erik Augustson, Ph.D., a behavioural scientist in the National Cancer Institute’s Tobacco Control Research Branch.”
