Can Texting Help Teenagers Quit Smoking?

Smokefree TXT is a free, twenty four hour service that provides teens who are trying to quit smoking with encouragement, advice, and tips to support their efforts. It is managed by the National Cancer Institute and paid for by American taxpayers. When teens sign up for the service, they are provided a quit date.
