HOUSTON, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- DaretoQuit.com is the only online stop smoking program that interacts daily with the user, providing specific lessons and strategies to coach him/her through the quitting process. The most unique thing about DaretoQuit.com is the video interface. Users are greeted daily by a "quit coach" who gets to know them and their personal smoking habits and "holds their hand" through the process.

DaretoQuit.com is a 6 week smoking cessation program developed by psychologists and based upon 30 years of scientific research. It is the only interactive, individualized smoking cessation program that tailors itself to individuals and their unique smoking habits

Each day when users log on to the DaretoQuit.com, they are directed to their own personalized page, called "My Page". Here, they receive daily lessons, coping strategies and feedback about how they are doing. This page also contains personalized information, including a graph of all of the subscribers' smoking episodes so they can easily track their progress over time.

"Quitting smoking is HARD! DaretoQuit.com is designed to give the user the tools they need to be successful. What is different about DaretoQuit.com is that it is personal and interactive. No two people will work the program quite the same way, because no two individuals are exactly the same. It takes courage and effort to quit smoking, but we know you can do it...go ahead, we dare you!" Suzanne Mouton-Odum, Ph.D. Developer of DaretoQuit.com

Dare to Quit.com was developed by Suzanne Mouton-Odum, Ph.D. and Robin Reamer, Ph.D. who are pioneers in the science of interactive, on-line self-help on the Internet. They have combined their knowledge and wisdom of interactive, self-help programming to the arena of smoking cessation with the help of Joy Schmitz, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist and a professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center who specializes in developing smoking cessation programs.
