For many of us, smoking cigarettes is a ritual. We’ve done it for so long that we don’t even think about it as an action with consequences.
In fact, quitting can be difficult because our brains are used to receiving nicotine at regular intervals. We also know that the majority of smokers simply cannot keep their hands off cigarettes long enough to kick the habit for good.
Quittercheck has a unique approach to helping people quit. Our program uses behavioral techniques like aversion therapy and positive reinforcements to get you through the toughest times.
Loss-aversion bias is the reluctance to lose things of value, especially when deciding under uncertainty. People are strongly affected by the fear of loss. This theory simply means we will act more on the fear of losing more than gaining, and we take losses harder than we enjoy our wins. It is an innate response that is hard-wired in each one of us.
This psychological fact is what forms the basis of Quittercheck’s program. We offer the same thing to everyone, which is monetary rewards. We use the money to motivate all participants in the program. Those that succeed are rewarded, and those that fail, lose the amount they put on the line.
Money is the object of focus here. Despite it being asymmetrical, it has been shown that the fear of losing a small percentage of money outweighs the potential of gaining more. This is why the Quittercheck program is very effective.
Users get monetary rewards for every test they pass but failing tests results in a loss of money. These losses have a bigger toll on the participants than the wins they experience. For this reason, loss aversion frequently motivates participants to succeed if the potential loss is enough. You will be able to set the amount you could potentially lose, it is personal and only you can decide what that amount is (minimum of $1). If the amount you set is not enough of a deterrent, then you can always raise it higher at any point during your plan, although you will not be able to lower it.
Quittercheck also employs the power of positivity. It is an effective conditioning technique. When you are rewarded for accomplishing something good, it reinforces the behavior and motivates you to do more.
With every test that you pass successfully, you get rewarded with some cash. This is not a one-time thing, as you will be awarded cash for each week you pass your tests. In other words, you’ll see your rewards grow during the duration of your program. This is the power of positive reinforcement.
And if that wasn’t enough motivation to quit, we also offer a savings calculator that lets you keep track of how much money you’ve saved by quitting—because let’s be real, cigarettes and any nicotine habit are expensive. It further inspires you to keep going on your journey.
At Quittercheck, we offer our participants nothing but positive affirmations, constant encouragement, and ongoing help whenever they face a daunting period in their quitting journey. Psychologically, a positive mindset and an enabling environment can nurture people to achieve great success, and that’s exactly what we strive to provide.
