Smoking and tobacco related cancers are very common among Native Americans. Gathering information during different phases of smoking cessation can help us understand different factors that may work during smoking cessation. In this paper, we will present a survey system designed to collect data for several phases of smoking cessation. We designed and developed a survey system that helps researchers to collect data from people who are going through different phases of smoking cessation. We evaluate this system from the experiences of end users and by generating reports.
