Assess the feasibility and acceptability of delivering an mHealth tobacco intervention among state quitline enrollees.
The main objective of this study is to assess the feasibility of delivering an mHealth tobacco intervention among state quitline enrollees. This will be measured through the assessment of interest and willingness to use the video text program, and the ability to receive video text messages (i.e., has technology capable of receiving and viewing video texts. At the end of the intervention, the team will assess satisfaction and perceived helpfulness of the video-text messaging program as an indication of acceptability.
After assessment eligibility, given consent, information about text messaging will be collected and participants enrolled in the Path2Quit culturally specific text message program and feedback will be collected on their experience.
Behavioral: Path2Quit - culturally specific text message intervention
SMS text delivers over 6 weeks with links to 20-120 second video clips from PTF. The message library contains 155 videos and assessment questions. First message is tailored to wake-up times, and the topic of the video (e.g., Never Quit Quitting) accompanies the text. Messages are pushed to participants 1-2 times/day, with 24/7 access to messages pulled from 3 keywords (HELP1, JONES, SLIP). Participants also receive inquiry texts, designed to push videos of interest/relevance to the individual. The cultural adaptations are infused throughout the video segments. Topics include deep structure: race and smoking in general, African American smoking statistics; norms for smoking; concerns about nicotine replacement/medication; family/collectivism; unique stressors; racism/discrimination, depression; co-morbid addiction; neighborhood/environmental influences; menthol cigarettes; race-specific weight issues and concerns; and working as a community against the tobacco industry.
