Experimental: Experimental App
This is a 3-week smartphone-based training program that trains behavioral strategies for smoking cessation by helping smokers self-monitor their smoking habits, recognize when and how often they smoke, identify triggers for smoking, and learn methods to become more mindful of triggers, to quit smoking with a target quit date of 3 weeks.
Behavioral: Experimental App
It is comprised of twenty-two modules of 10-15 minutes each, designed to teach behavioral strategies for smoking cessation using psychoeducation-based audio and videos, animations to reinforce key concepts, and in vivo exercises. In addition, 5 bonus modules become available upon completion of earlier modules; these may be accessed for additional practices to bolster other modules
Active Comparator: Active comparator app
This is a 3-week smartphone application for smoking cessation in which smokers self-monitor their smoking habits, mood, and experience, to quit smoking with a target quit date of 3 weeks.
Behavioral: Active Comparator App
It is comprised of 6 prompts per day asking individuals about their experience, behavior, and smoking habits, for 22-days.
