  • Make quitting easier with apps!

    Quit is an “application designed to gradually wean you from dependency on cigarettes. Each individual’s step-down program is calculated based on statistical data from other users, and it’s continuously adjusted to your specific smoking pattern. (for Android)

    Kwit “uses game design techniques, game thinking and game mechanics to encourage people to quit smoking. You reach higher and higher levels and rankings as you try to become the Ultimate Kwitter.” (for iPhone)

    KickSmoking “is designed to help you resist cravings and offer encouragement by keeping a track of the health benefits you’ve unlocked. There’s an in-app craving timer which is accessable as pinned tile. This timer helps take your mind off the craving by giving you an end goal to focus on instead.” (for Windows Phone)

    Or try out Beeminder, “goal-tracking with teeth. Mind anything you can graph [like quitting smoking] by replying with data when Beeminder prompts you. Beeminder combines self-tracking and commitment contracts: keep all your data points on a Yellow Brick Road to your goal or we take your money.” (for Android and iPhone, and connects to devices like Fitbit)
