Abstract: Background and aims: Millions of people world‐wide use websites to help them quit smoking, but effectiveness trials have an average 34% follow‐up data retention rate and an average 9% quit rate. We compared the quit rates of a website using a new behavioral approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT; WebQuit.org) with the current standard of the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Smokefree.gov website. Design: A two‐arm stratified double‐blind individually randomized trial ( n =1319 for WebQuit; n =1318 for Smokefree.gov) with 12‐month follow‐up. Setting: United States. Participants: Adults ( n =2637) who currently smoked at least five cigarettes per day were recruited from March 2014 to August 2015. At baseline, participants were mean [standard deviation (SD)] age 46.2years (13.4), 79% women and 73% white. Interventions: WebQuit.org website (experimental) provided ACT for smoking cessation; Smokefree.gov website (comparison) followed US Clinical Practice Guidelines for smoking cessation. Measurements: The primary outcome was self‐reported 30‐day point prevalence abstinence at 12months. Findings: The 12‐month follow‐up data retention rate was 88% (2309 of 2637). The 30‐day point prevalence abstinence rates at the 12‐month follow‐up were 24% (278 of 1141) for WebQuit.org and 26% (305 of 1168) for Smokefree.gov [odds ratio (OR)=0.91; 95% confidence interval (CI)=0.76, 1.10; P =0.334] in the a priori complete case analysis. Abstinence rates were 21% (278 of 1319) for WebQuit.org and 23% (305 of 1318) for Smokefree.gov (OR=0.89 (0.74, 1.07; P =0.200) when missing cases were imputed as smokers. The Bayes factor comparing the primary abstinence outcome was 0.17, indicating 'substantial' evidence of no difference between groups. Conclusions: WebQuit.org and Smokefree.gov had similar 30‐day point prevalence abstinence rates at 12months that were descriptively higher than those of prior published website‐delivered interventions and telephone counselor‐delivered interventions.
