QUIT Victoria have launched a motivational smoking cessation app in partnership with Geelong Cats and Healthy Together Geelong – the “Cats Don’t Smoke” app.
The foundation of the smart phone app will provide motivational messages from Geelong Cats players, coaches and support team to help users quit or stay quit. Cancer Council Victoria research has found that smart phone apps can be effective tools in supporting smokers to quit.
Smokers who download the free Cats Don’t Smoke app can:
- Receive inspirational messages and quitting tips from club figureheads including Geelong Cats captain Joel Selwood, star forward Allen Christensen, senior coach Chris Scott and CEO Brian Cook.
- Track how their body is recovering as they stay quit
- Calculate how much they’ve saved since quitting
Whilst you may not support Geelong, if you’re struggling with quitting smoking or need a bit of extra encouragement along the way, why not utilise all the tools available to you!
