Prospect theory suggests that because smoking cessation is a prevention behavior with a fairly certain outcome, gain-framed messages will be more persuasive than loss-framed messages when attempting to encourage smoking cessation. Results suggest that gain-framed messages may be more persuasive than loss-framed messages in promoting early success in smoking cessation for participants who are engaged in treatment.

This study compared the effectiveness of gain-, loss-, and mixed-framed messages for promoting moderate to vigorous physical activity to sedentary, healthy callers to the US National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Information Service. Results indicated that gain- and mixed-framed messages resulted in stronger intentions and greater self-efficacy than loss-framed messages in this randomized trial.
