Today findings from a recent Anderson Analytics market research study were released that examined the underlying reasons for success of common methods used to stop smoking versus a new online approach. This study compared participants that completed the 42-day “Quit Smoking” program by Habit Changer against participants who used nicotine-replacement therapies or other alternatives to quit or reduce intake of cigarettes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), roughly 9.2 million smokers attempt to quit annually.
Overwhelmingly, twice as many respondents (80%) who completed the “Quit Smoking” Habit Changer program reported a positive change in their smoking behavior versus the control group (42%) that employed popular methods other than Habit Changer. A positive change shows that respondents reported quitting smoking entirely or reduced their smoking. On average, Habit Changer respondents reduced their smoking by 13 cigarettes versus eight cigarettes by the control group per day. If an average pack contains 20 cigarettes, on average the Habit Changer group would smoke 1,800 fewer cigarettes or 90 packs less annually than the control group. Looking at the population as a whole, this translates into 95 million less cigarettes.
note from Karen: There is a fee of $19.95 for the 42 day Habit Changer program. I am not affiliated with this program and I do not receive any payment for referrals. I do however feel that it is money very well spent!
