Yeah it's called Smoke Free. I've been reading the daily missions and writing down little notes for myself. It's really well done and helps a ton. Earning badges is fun too.
Smoke free app on android is free and does exactly what you described. I posted a screenshot of the widget on my homepage on another reply
I don't have the words to describe how happy I currently am knowing I can call myself a non smoker.
The first 2 weeks were very tough. After 11 years of consuming this nasty product my body and mind were overwhelmed with it disappearance. I felt like a ghost in my own body just watching the world roll by. That passed however and I feel like a new person. I have more energy, I can breathe better, no more waking up a coughing a lung and I CAN SMELL THINGS!!!! The cravings unfortunately have not gone away but it's easier by the day.
To all of those who commented and messaged me about how I motivated them to stop as well, I hope you are staying strong. The best tip I can give is finding a new hobby. Keep your mind off the fact that you are not smoking, it really helps. My inbox is always open.
The app is called Smoke Free and can be found on both iOS and the Play Store.

Thank you everyone from the bottom of my lungs ��
Although I don't think that Allen Carr's book is the magic bullet that some people make it out to be there's some points in it that helped me quit for good. The main one was changing the mindset of giving up smoking, as you aren't actually giving up anything. There's nothing to gain by smoking.
A combination of the Smoke Free app & vaping helped me more than what I learned form the book.
It's called SmokeFree. This app, and this subreddit are the reasons I made it through the first month.
You have to find the reason that works for you to actually want to quit. I've tried to quit a thousand times over the last 15 years (didn't try to quit in the first 4 to 5 years) and failed because I wasn't doing it for my own personal reason, I was doing it for someone else or some other external reason. Now I want to quit for me, for my son and husband, for my health, just to prove I can, to save money, etc. And those reasons are truly important to me. It has made the cravings bearable whereas in the past, i would give in with the slightest pressure, this time I've made it through the holidays and with bring inebriated as well as through a fight. Because I want to be a non smoker now. I had to also let go of the way I identified myself (I am a smoker versus I'm a nonsmoker). That was quite difficult for me actually.
Anyway, figure out all the benefits of quiting that are important to you personally. Once you do that, you have your daily reminders ready. I use an app too to track how many days, how much money saved, etc (I think it's caked smoke free). ([link])
I gotchu (I think): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.portablepixels.smokefree&hl=en_GB
This is the app [link]
It's really nice and keeps track of the time you didn't smoke. Now I got here cause my mission says I have to read reports from smoke quitters
Eu não deixei propriamente de fumar, uma vez que ainda fumo um cigarro de vez em quando (mais quando vou beber umas cervejas ou ao final do dia), mas o que me ajudou bastante, para além de teres um motivo forte - no meu caso era o cheiro que me incomodava e a minha namorada não gostava muito e preocupava-se - e também uma App que instalei.
Existem Apps que te incentivam a deixares de fumar ou até a reduzires, mostram como a tua saúde está a melhorar a cada minuto que não fumas e "premeiam-te" por estares a deixar de fumar - sob a forma de "Achievements"/Medalhas, etc...
Como eu até gosto dessas coisas nos videojogos, assentou-me perfeitamente. Também podes meter na App cada vez que tens uma recaída e ele actualiza todos os dados. Eu usei esta mas sei que há mais umas quantas.
Claro que a App não vai fazer nada se não tiveres a força de vontade ou bons motivos, mas no meu caso foi o que ajudou. Fumava +- meio maço por dia e passei para um cigarro ocasional ao fim do dia ou no fim de semana.
"Smoke Free". It's free, by the way. You can pay for little missions and stuff, but as a tracker it works just fine without paying.
You should check out some of the "quit smoking" apps that are out there on ios or android. They will usually have a bunch of graphs where you put in the last day that you smoked and it will track how fast your body is recovering in all the major areas that are usually damaged by smoking like lung and heart functions. Here is just one example. It tracks other stuff too like cigarettes you haven't smoked and money saved.
I know that isn't exactly what you asked for but hopefully it helps. When I quit smoking I could feel the benefits pretty quickly. I noticed it mostly in my lungs. It almost felt like someone had sprayed them down with a power washer or something and I was just so much "cleaner" inside.
There are several quitting apps in the store, for Android I recommend "SmokeFree", it has some nice features and you really don't need the paid version (which gives you ~~"challenges" iirc~~ "missions")
Also, despite the colour it looks pretty similar
I'm almost six months smoke free after eight years of pretty heavy smoking. I downloaded this app that allows you to compulsively check how long it's been since your last cigarette, how many cigarettes you haven't smoked, how much money you've saved... It's amazing.
As of right now I've not smoked 3172 cigarettes!
It's called Smoke Free. You can get it here:
Second Class Citizen:
Not another puff, no matter what
Phrase borrowed from Smoke Free app
I'm not affiliated to the app, no connection at all, just enjoying the app and giving recognition
Eu am 3 săptămâni de când m-am lăsat. Recomand aplicația asta: [link]
Nu știu dacă e ok dar eu mai bag o narghilea o data pe săptămână.
I'm using Smoke Free. A cool app and by using it you have the option to contribute your data for some research on smoking which will hopefully help others one day as well!
I believe it is this app:
(Sorry about the formatting I don't know how to make it look nice)
Edit: It's called 'Smoke free' on the play store if the link doesn't work. It is free although a premium upgrade is available I think.
Thanks friend! This one is called "Smoke free" on iOS it has the green checkmark as the icon
edit: [link] android version
Thank you so much! It's called Smoke Free Beta, it is this one and available on both Android and iPhone :)
I just downloaded one called "Smoke Free", I like it so far.
I am 34 hours in so far, and according to the app 70% of all nicotine is gone -- pretty interesting.
Since I was smoking concentrate it was easy to configure the so. I was smoking 0.7 grams/day and with tax those were averaging $74 each.
I didn't factor in battery costs. Lol
I'm using Smoke Free. It asks for permission to location and media, but I haven't granted the permissions and everything is working just fine. I doubt you're going to find any that don't ask for some sort of permission. These days even calculators want location permissions.
I quit after 12 years, cold turkey and then read Allen Carr's Easy way in the first week.
I stayed clean for 8 years. Then I guess I got complacent and was in the middle of a divorce, in a self-destructive, self-loathing mental space and relapsed for 1 year.
Now I quit again, cold turkey. And I'm using the smokefree app this time. ( The first time I quit was before smartphones).
From experience I know I can quit and stay clean, but I'm still struggling at times in this first week.
Only just recently hit 6 months but I don't plan on ever going back. Savings so far is $499.36 and projected yearly savings is $1484.35.
For those curious, the app is Smoke Free.
There are many apps to keep track of how long you are smoke free and give you nice statistics. Some popular ones for Android:
Also something which helped me to keep up motivation:
This is the Smoke Free app if anyone else was curious:
Android version, it's available on iTunes too I believe.
I moved far away, were I knew nobody. No contacts, no weed.
The cigs? I basically told myself for months that I'm going to quit when X happens, and after that Y, always postponing. I tried, I quit, I failed. But after every try, I learned something. I learned what made me come back and how I could avoid it.
At some point, there was no need anymore. I quit, but my mind wasn't working against me anymore like it was before. You know, where are like "No, brain, I quit! Don't tell me stuff like "You know what would be awesome? A smoke!".
If you need friendly encouragement and badge-motivation, try /r/stopsmoking. There is also a great app out there that list you the benefits of quitting, which stage you reached and it has a nice counter so you can see your progress in hours.
At least [link] has a cravings adding system, and [link] does the smoking time and place tracking
I know where you're coming from, man. I'm 23, started smoking at 14, continued to do so until last november. Everything I did had cigarettes involved. Every trip went to, I had to think about when to smoke. I smelled like cigarettes constantly(which I guess I wasn't realizing, but trust me everyone else around does.). A pack every single day. Then one night, almost a year ago, I realized how stupid this whole thing is and stopped. It's so worth the 2-3 weeks of discomfort. Also - download an app that tracks your non-smoking on your phone(i used that one, it's great) - it really helps to see the numbers in front of you.
Throw away any lighters, if you have some cigs left in a pack around, throw them away, get something to chew on/eat for when you get a craving the first couple of weeks, I got through tons of chewing gum. It's bad the first two weeks, but you'll feel better and your breath won't smell like shit. Don't get bored. You smoke when you're bored. A couple of weeks later, you'll start geting your taste back and everything will taste so much better. I felt like I was eating Lion bars for the first time. You'll breathe easier. Man, when you're smoking you don't(at least I didn't) realize how fucked up your breathing is. I can run/bike for so much longer than I used to, it's awesome.
Tell everyone you quit, so they'll know why you're acting like a mad person for the first days. Talk about it with ex-smokers(like, you know, this subreddit), just don't give up. Compared to the benefits, the bad period after stopping is a minor discomfort.
It's late and I'm not sure that what I wrote makes any sense, but good luck!
You can handle it and when you need it, channel your inner David Hasselhoff for extra strength. The third day is also going to suck but you if you can get through the 1st day, you can get through today and every one afterwards. It gets better and this app does help: [link] having something to quantify progress has helped a lot with the mental side of it.
Smoke Free, quit smoking now and stop for good
Smoke free, I find it very useful.
For the lazy: iOS and Android.
It's SmokeFree: [link]
I moved from California to Washington a couple years ago, and the price of cigarettes up here is more than double what it was back home ($10-13 versus $5-7) and I thought it would discourage me, but it didn't; I just ended up having less money to spend on other things, and I continued smoking for over a year after I moved here. The first time I tried to quit, I slowly cut down until I was smoking like 1/2 to 1 cigarette per day (I had roommates who were smokers, so it was easy to bum off of them)...and then I went back home for a visit, was drinking with friends, and the 1 cigarette a day slowly grew back into 1/2-1 pack per day like I said. It took me almost another year to try quitting again -- this time, a friend had given me Carr's book and instead of cutting down I just went cold-turkey. I finished the last cigarette in my pack, and resolved to not smoke again. There was one day about 3 weeks after that where I was having a very bad day at work and ended up bumming one off of a coworker, but I didn't get more than a couple drags in -- it tasted bad, did nothing to relieve my stress, and did basically nothing but confirm in my mind that I really didn't need cigarettes.
This time quitting was so much easier than when I was cutting down, even than when I was maintaining at one or two cigarettes per day. The cravings were not bad at all, and after a couple days they were mostly gone. For the first month or two, I would sometimes pass someone smoking on the street and instantly think "that smells good, I want one" but would then realize "no, actually, it smells quite bad and I don't really want a cigarette...I want the idea of a cigarette." After the first month or two though, I very rarely if ever get cravings, and they're mild, momentary things rather than the constant thoughts of smoking when I was trying to cut down.
It's definitely hard trying to quit when you're in a relationship with someone still using, whether it's cigarettes or another substance, so I wish you the best of luck! The first time I tried to quit the guy I was seeing was a smoker not seriously interested in quitting (he'd say "oh yeah, I want to do it with you" but then not actually try much). If you're the only one doing it, it will be difficult but not impossible. If you need any support, r/stopsmoking is a good community!
Something else that helped me was downloading an app called Smoke Free. It helped to see how long it had been, how much money I'd saved, and how close I was to reversing the negative health effects of smoking (there's charts showing how long it'll take until you should regain full sense of smell and taste, or how long until your risk of heart attack or cancer is the same as a nonsmoker). There are also little daily challenges for the first two months which can help you focus on your goal (though I didn't do most of them).
I loved my app, it even gave me little missions to complete every day. I think it really helped.
Thats the app. Good luck friend. Sounds pretty definitive
Smoke free . I installed it just a while back and took me ages to find the app.
It's free by and large. You can pay monthly or a one time fee for some extended (unnecessary) features.
This is the "Smoke free" app. I use it as well and I think it's a great tool.
It's on andriod! I have a samsung and it's the app I use
See /r/stopsmoking for some ongoing support and also check out the Smokefree app.
It's called Smoke Free. It's free but you can pay $4.99 to get premium features.
First off congrats on the decision to quit that's the first step the next is to figure out your triggers and think of ways to resist. Try gum,candy, flavored toothpicks keeping your mouth occupied is important also keep your hands busy fidget spinners are becoming popular and remotely cheap. Another thing is be honest with yourself if you feel like you need a cigarette resist that feeling as much as long as you can I'm taking hours not minutes. Before you can commit to a life time you need to be able to commit to a single day so your first task is to make it through one day of not smoking. What I did was limit myself I only allowed myself so many cigarettes in a day my limit was 3 now this doesn't mean I will smoke 3 the goal was not to smoke any but if the urge got to strong I would smoke one and as time went on I found myself holding out longer and longer soon after I wouldn't finish the entire thing.
You got this in the bag! Below are some links, also I highly recommend this app called smoke free and urge you to purchase the premium version if you can buy a pack of cigarettes you can purchase this app try it out first its feee to download and it's on both iOS and android
Quick google search indicates it might be this one:
(sorry for my bad english)
August 3th. It will go away. Keep some of these tips
and in the meanwhile, for the next days, distract yourself from focusing on craving sansations with something healty you like (if you don't have it, find one more than one is better). Also get this app [link] and/or try similar.
And listen to this man
he deeply inspire me. Don't give up, try your best, but if happen again, be compassionate with your self.
aaahh and do practice mindfulness meditation! :)
Thats a good boss!
