World Health Organization Highlights Quit Genius Best in Class for “World No Tobacco Day” May 31
The average quit rate for smokers in the Quit Genius program is 52% – much higher than traditional methods. Its effectiveness has been proven in many studies.
According to the WHO, tobacco causes 8 million deaths each year. While quitting smoking can be difficult, especially with the added social and economic stress resulting from the pandemic, there are many reasons to quit. The benefits of quitting smoking are almost immediate. After just 20 minutes of quitting smoking, a person’s heart rate drops. Within 12 hours, the level of carbon monoxide in the blood returns to normal. In 2 to 12 weeks, circulation improves and lung function increases. Within 1 to 9 months, the cough and shortness of breath decrease, and within 5 to 15 years, the risk of stroke is reduced to that of a non-smoker.
Building on the evidence-based practice of Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT), Quit Genius combines virtual behavior therapy with approved medications and connected devices to help people quit smoking and overcome their nicotine addiction.
