Stoptober Facebook Messenger Chat Bot

We realised we needed to reach our audience in the channels they are using now. Professor Robert West developed a strategy for successful quit attempts which involves being there for quitters when they need support most. So we created a chatbot that would help users in their moment of need: They could send an ‘SOS’ whenever they had a craving and the bot responded with relevant support. Daily support messages also helped to keep participants motivated and smoke-free
