    HKUMed reveals WhatsApp chat support enhances smokers’ quitting rate

    The Smoking Cessation Research Team at the School of Nursing and School of Public Health of the HKU Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine(HKUMed) conducted a cluster-randomised controlled trial at the 8th “Quit to Win” Smoke-free Community Campaign organised by the Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health, which found that “WhatsApp chat support”, combined with brief smoking cessation interventions, could increase the chance of quitting by 60% to 90%. The study recruited 1,185 daily cigarette smokers, where 591 participants were randomised to the intervention group and 594 to the control group. Those who joined the intervention group have a quitting rate 90% higher than the control group at a three-month follow-up, and the chance of verified quitting was still 60% higher in the intervention group at six-month follow-up, which was three months after the end of “WhatsApp chat support”.
