San Francisco, CA, August 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- QuitTool.com goes live with the first ever motivational and informational assist service for public use. This service is designed to help assist people during the process of quitting. QuitTool is a free service built to help people rid their lives of habits like smoking, chewing, pop / soda, unnecessary snacks, fast food, drinking, and more.
Academic studies have shown that tobacco users are twice as likely to quit their habit when sent motivational and informational messages. (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/06/30/us-smoking-texts-idUSTRE75T00Q20110630)
It was with this in mind that led the creator of QuitTool to develop a process free for the public to use. Graham Waite, Lead Developer stated: “After reading the wonderful results of these studies and having helped a friend in a similar way in 2010. I thought why not build a free service that does that same thing that everyone can use. It is like having a best friend that truly cares about you multiple times a day.”
How it works:
Signing up for the service at QuitTool.com takes only minutes. Select what habit you want assistance with and how you want to receive your messages. Within a day, you will start to receive a motivational and informational text or email message direct to your phone or other device about your habit. QuitTool was designed for total account customization and ease of use. Accounts are active for six months; but if you need more time, you can reset the program length. Users can also suspend or delete their account at anytime. For privacy and security reasons, all information is encrypted using the latest technology.
QuitTool.com was started when the creator helped motivate a friend quit his addiction. The motivation was sent primarily through text and email messages. Around this same time studies were also promising wonderful results using the same processes. After some R&D and a couple days in the laboratory, QuitTool.com went live for all to use.
