Washington: Support for quitting smoking via text and video messages can offer a low cost solution to kick the butt, according to a new study. A Cochrane systematic review found that people are more likely to stay away from cigarettes over a period of six months if they receive motivational messages and advice through their mobile phones. Text messages are already used by health services to send appointment reminders and to encourage people to stick to treatment programmes. And mobile phones may offer a low cost solution for delivering smoking cessation services.
