Quittercheck was founded in 2020 during the outbreak of the pandemic when much wasn’t known about its effects. Our founder’s parents were smokers who tried quitting multiple times without success. They’d be successful for a few months but would eventually relapse to the habit they formed over so many years. This is the driving force that inspired him to develop something that would help them quit permanently.
The idea for the program came about while our founder was running his dental clinic. He consulted with other doctors, psychologists and addiction experts, in order to to design protocols for the quit plans. The plans were developed with customizable options based on individual needs. The concept was informally tested with a group of nicotine users that had trouble quitting in the past. They found that 83% of those users remained nicotine free after 6 months at the conclusion of the study.
We aim to help people live more fulfilling healthy lives. Almost everyone knows someone that struggles with nicotine addiction. Family members more than anyone else, see how incredibly hard it is for their loved ones to kick the habit for good. Quittercheck’s mission is to help reduce the high number of preventable deaths, and cancer diagnoses that happen every year, all while making the process of quitting more effective through accountability but also rewarding.
