Stop smoking programs go mobile
Colorado's STEPP and Denver-based ad agency Cactus developed a message system on cell phones with an Internet quit program.
Initially aimed at high school students in Colorado, the state hopes to soon share its fledgling FixNixer program as a technique for all age groups and geographies.
QuitNet.com, one of the most established Web sites for quitting, is also considering more tailored messages to users of its site and a foray into mobile, while quit support groups are popping up on social networks MySpace and Facebook.
