App of Real People who Genuinely Care!

I think this is by far going to play the biggest part in my journey to a healthier me & smoke free life-lifestyle! I can’t believe how informative it is, information that OPENS MY EYES, that no one ever taught or told me about when I started smoking! What nicotine is actually made out of, how many different ways it’s affects me, my mind-brain, heart, blood vessels right down to dental issues due to smoking! Loss of sense of smell, taste. Also, putting others, people we love the most in harms way in many different forms by 2nd hand smoke alone. I’m horrified & I’m thinking...”THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT US...SMOKERS ENOUGH TO PROVIDE INFORMATION IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS-FORMS. THANK TOU FOR CARING ENOUGH ABOUT US BY DOING WHAT YOU DO, ENOUGH TO STICK WITH US, BELIEVE IN UD, ENCOURAGE US ENOUGH, TAKE UP YOUR OWN TIME TO HELP US.” ...ALOT of us smokers are those of us who have been smoking aren’t used to people like you. Amazing people who honestly care! Thank you?
Think about how many lives you potentially save, have an impact on, families you change please? What you do is HUGE!
I definitely appreciate it & recommend you app 100%, hands down!!!

Helping me meet my goals

I’m 19 and last year during senior year of high school I let myself get addicted to Juul then I went to Italy for a month where I smoked a pack and a half a day. I made terrible choices and downloading this app is just one step I'm taking to quit. I’m doing this without any medication to help. I think downloading this app should not be your first choice. What I did was first I went to a hospital and talked to a doctor and I was honest with the doctor and asked for any help they could give me. Then every day since I’ve done something differently but something that is clearly enforcing to my brain that I want to quit. This is one of my steps and I plan on using it to try and get through this weekend. I’m a college student so I know I’m gonna get a lot of triggers. What I think is great about this app is that I can set locations for it to remind me. I’ve set reminders for all the frats at my school, my friends dorm and the place I usually get pods or cigs. Tomorrow my step is I’m gonna call a hotline and just talk to them. I think the most important thing for myself is to be committed and also to prove to my brain I’m committed. By saying every morning I’m not gonna smoke and then doing an action that directly aligns with that has made my urges less controlling. I wish anyone reading this the best of luck, you can do this!

Really helping on my journey to quit!!

I love the tips & check-ins. Some of the games need instructions. Or I’m too old to figure out!!
It would be nice to have a time on your check in for when you lasts checked in, again, I’m too old to remember the last time I checked in, therefore how many cigarettes I smoked!! Not fair!!!
I love the app!! I have cut back from 1 ½ to 2 ppd to a little over a ½ ppd. Soon I will be a non-smoker!!!! 🥳🤩
Just add a “Last check-in time” when then check-in screen pops up.
Thanks 😊
As I been using the app, I’ve noticed a few things.
When it’s time to check in or it gives you a check in tip, you have a split second to tab how you are doing before it goes to the inspiration, tips, FYI, etc.
the other issue is, most of the tips to help stop cravings are to exercise. A lot of people who are quitting smoking, already have a pulmonary disease which makes them short of breath with minimal exertion!
Please add pulmonary exercises that can be done by respiratory patients.
Thank you!!!
