Experimental: This is Quitting
Participants will be enrolled to receive messages from This is Quitting.
Users receive one age-appropriate message per day tailored to their enrollment date or quit date, which can be set and reset via text message. Those not ready to quit receive 4 weeks of messages focused on building skills and confidence. Users who set a quit date receive messages for a week preceding it and 8 weeks afterward that include encouragement and support, skill- and self-efficacy building exercises, coping strategies, and information about the risks of vaping, benefits of quitting, and cutting down to quit. Keywords COPE, STRESS, SLIP, and MORE provide on-demand support.
