Ratings and Reviews
My sister was in AA and she told me about this app- I used this to help me quit smoking marijuana. My suggestion is that this app can be used for other addictions IMO and even the 12 steps can apply to my situation. This app is great, it's so encouraging and whenever I felt like giving up, I was able to see my progress and it was extremely helpful. Another suggestion for the app- I use the app "smoke free" and it provides a lot of tips along the way which is nice and shows your health improvement etc which is also very encouraging. All in all this is a really great app and I love it! Very helpful and I love that it gives you the 12 steps to do on your own and email to yourself or journal (I have been searching for that!) And side note - I LOVE THE OWL LOL. I saw someone didn't like it but for me this is actually what makes me smile when I am feeling like giving up. In my opinion It's actually nice to add some lightheartedness to a serious topic. We all need a little smiling and laughter in our lives especially during the tough times and more serious situations.
Great resource one stop shop to healthy daily thoughts
Anytime I need a reference, it's here! It's simple to navigate. I really like the daily check list, it helps me check off positive things I can do for myself. Thank you!!
Lose the owl
I liked this app very much until the latest update. When I open the app to read the big book or whatever, up pops the cartoon owl staring at me for however long it takes for the program to load. I'm reading AA literature but to the casual observer, it looks like I'm playing a game. Recovery is serious so I don't understand the cutesy graphics and the stupid owl. As a result I'm using this app less each day.
