My favorite app!
I have successfully quit smoking for 21 days as of right now! I owe it almost all to this app. I love how supportive the livestrong community is and how inspirational it is reading success stories! I post to the community forum almost daily and comment on others' posts. It gets me through every craving! I like how you can choose to wean off or do it cold turkey, and how you can record your cravings or the butts you've smoked. It also keeps track of how much money you've saved. The only thing I wish it had was a health benefits timeline, where you can see how your health has improved since quitting. I had to download another app for that, I wish this one had it all! But still five stars-I absolutely love this app and it's one of the main reasons I have stayed quit. I highly suggest getting this app if you're trying to quit! You will fall in love with it!
Update: when I first wrote this review, I was only 8.5 days quit, but I lasted for 14 months. I started up again, but quit twice more after that. Now I'm doing it again, three weeks today, and I feel ready to make this my LAST quit! This community welcomed me back with open arms every time, and they were so encouraging:-) I highly, highly, highly recommend this app! You can always delete it if you don't like it, but I promise you won't delete it because you're going to love it! And it's free!!
Solid app, with room for improvement
I've cut my daily cigarette intake in half just by recording it in this app. I'm 26 years old and I've been smoking for about two years now, up to 10 cigs a day before I downloaded this. I attempt to keep up with recording my cravings, but I always record each cigarette I smoke. Before this app I really wasn't sure what my daily average was. Now I'm on day 15 of my 42 day plan and I've been "under my budget" every day. It hasn't even been hard to smoke less now that I'm more conscious of each decision to smoke.
I am very pleased with this app and would rate it 5⭐️ if it was more attractive looking. I do like that I can choose my own photo for the main page, but it's not as important as the overall appearance of the app. The information is relatively easy to find and navigate, but could be streamlined to be less cumbersome and more attractive. Perhaps a less attractive app is desirable since it's related to something as gross as smoking... But we're using iOS here. Appearance and design matter. I'd trade prettier buttons and graphs for some preset start page backgrounds any day, if you know what I mean.
Overall great app and worth the extra $1 to remove the ads. Thanks for helping me get healthy!
This app is great. I am 27 years old and have been smoking a pack a day for over ten years. I have spent countless dollars trying to quit before but I really find this app helpful bc the forum gives you a support system and an excellent sense of community which being a smoker you don't really find very often. I feel like I am always getting lectured and all these people are going through it with you. The forum also provides helpful advice. You can also see the progress you have made through your entries and it really gives you a great sense of accomplishment .once you see the things you have been able to do and also overcome you are more inclined to continue your acheivements. I am not saying if you download the app you will magically quit but it is definitely a helpful aid in quiting.
