TheCarrot.com Launches Quit Smoking Program
Date:1/20/2011

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TheCarrot.com, a leading provider of online and mobile consumer health engagement programs, announced the immediate availability of its new Quit Smoking Program. Drawing on the expertise of the University of California at San Francisco's Smoking Cessation Leadership Center, the action-based program combines proven behavior modification methodology with TheCarrot.com's award-winning online and mobile health platform.

"We're excited to offer our customers an innovative approach to Quit Smoking," says Douglas Trauner, CEO and founder of Health Analytic Services, Inc., the producer of TheCarrot.com. "By combining the nationally-recognized methodology of The Smoking Cessation Leadership Center with TheCarrot.com's easy-to-use online and iPhone applications, we're able to offer our customers a convenient tool to help them stop smoking."

With TheCarrot.com's Quit Smoking Program, smokers can identify and monitor the reasons they want to quit smoking, behaviors that trigger a desire for a cigarette, their cravings, medications and smoking replacements. For example, with TheCarrot.com's free iPhone App, program users can record their cravings and be reminded of their reasons to quit as easily as reaching for a pack of cigarettes.  

Users can also participate in TheCarrot.com's online community of others who are quitting smoking to share suggestions, tips, and comments in a secure online forum.

"The Smoking Cessation Leadership Program is dedicated to helping smokers quit and to helping increase the ways smokers can quit," said Steve Schroeder, Executive Director, University of California San Francisco's Smoking Cessation Leadership Program. "We're excited to help TheCarrot.com launch their online and mobile program as another way to reach additional groups of smokers."

TheCarrot.com's Quit Smoking Program is the first of many self-management programs targeted to specific health topics and conditions that the company will launch in 2011. Quit Smoking is available now for all registered users at TheCarrot.com at: https://TheCarrot.com/programs/smoking
