If there is one thing a teenage smoker is more likely to pick up than a cigarette, it's a mobile phone. Teens (or anyone) can text the word "quit" to IQUIT (47848) and receive motivational messages. There are other apps, too:

$0: QuitStart: Tracks cravings, identifies triggers --
$0: Quitter: Shows how much money you've saved since you last smoked -- iTunes
$1: MyQuit Coach: Helps set goals to quit smoking --
$1: Smoke Out: Shows how many days of your life you've saved by quitting -- iTunes
