Stay Quit Coach is designed to help with quitting smoking. It is intended to serve as a source of readily available support and information for adults who are already in treatment to quit smoking - - to help them stay quit even after treatment ends. The app guides users in creating a tailored plan that takes into account their personal reasons for quitting. It provides information about smoking and quitting, interactive tools to help users cope with urges to smoke, and motivational messages and support contacts to help users stay smoke-free.
Stay Quit Coach is based on the smoking treatment manual “Integrated Care for Smoking Cessation: Treatment for Veterans with PTSD,” which was written by Miles McFall and Andrew Saxon in collaboration with David Kalman and Timothy Carmody. This treatment is based on evidence-based clinical practices, and has been shown to double quit rates of military veterans with PTSD.
Stay Quit Coach was the result of a collaborative effort among the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Center for PTSD (NCPTSD), the VA Sierra Pacific (VISN 21) Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center (MIRECC), VA Clinical Public Health Group (CPH) and the Department of Defense National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2). Additional partners include the VA Puget Sound Health Care System and Northwest (VISN 20) MIRECC, and VA Mid-Atlantic (VISN 6) MIRECC.

To many PHD’s have their hands in the pot
To many PHD’s have their hands in this app’s pot LOL development wise,,,this app has the potential to be a very good tool however it is not because all of the features don’t work ie I signed up for daily motivationals and have yet to see 1 delivered to me NOT ONE but I see an in-depth acknowledgement credibility section to all the PHD’d who developed this app,,,and you can bet that worked and was clear to read,,,DON’T DO US VETS ANY FAVORS WHEN GLORY SEEKING we have enough problems getting quality health care as it is, at least these DR’s can give us something we can actually use
Great quit smoking app the best
This quit smoking app provided the tools to help me kick the smoking habit after 25 years. The biggest tool was identifying my triggers and implementing a detailed plan "AARM"(avoidance, alternative, replace, mental) . It also provided information on relapse( not to beat yourself up, immediately put out cigarette and recommit yourself and analyze that new trigger and implement the plan. And last it provided information on medications to quit smoking.
This App is great. Well thought out. Gives me the tools & empowers me to quit smoking... Very helpful & supportive.
