The QuitNet community has many milestones to celebrate today!
QuitNet has been connecting thousands of members on their quit-smoking journey since 1995, making it the Internet’s longest-running quit-smoking site. The heart of the site has always been the community that uses it. On QuitNet’s 20th birthday, we’re celebrating that community along with another important milestone: today, the QuitNet community added its 20,000th member since relaunching in March!
Founded by MeYou Health's chief medical officer Nate Cobb, MD, QuitNet began as a single Internet message board and quickly evolved into a community where ex-smokers came together to help newcomers quit and fellow ex-smokers stay quit. The site has gone through many different stages and updates as technology continued to change, but the core principles of social support remained intact. Over the past two decades, QuitNet has been the subject of multiple NIH grants and studies and nearly 20 peer-reviewed academic publications. In March 2015, QuitNet was relaunched for web and mobile devices with a brand-new design.
Today, QuitNet continues to grow and expand, all while honoring its important legacy. Watch the video to below to celebrate along with the MeYou Health team and members of the QuitNet community!
