Smokers Not Ready to Quit Respond to Cessation Game
Playing a smoking cessation smartphone game may make it easier for smokers to achieve cessation even when they're not yet ready to quit, a clinical trial suggests. The trial included 433 current smokers who reported that they were reluctant to quit, of whom 213 were randomized to participate in a three-week mobile-health game experience prior to the initiation of nicotine replacement therapy. All the participants were given nicotine replacement therapy.
