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!
When I first downloaded this app, it was great, but now that I’ve started on Chantix to help me, a lot of the functions in the app aren’t working properly, such as photos and the “brag” button. Every time I try to upload a photo, the app closes completely and the photo does not upload. I wanted to add photos as reminders as to why I want and need to quit. These reminder images are very important to me.
Also, I feel that the “Brag” button is a great feature, if only it worked. I feel it would be a great motivator, however, when I click on the button, it only opens up my messengers, printers, notes, etc. when I believe it is supposed to redirect me to a community page of some kind. Not sure about that because I can’t get it to work unless it only wants me to brag to people in my own contact list, but it doesn’t make sense because it tells you that your progress will be featured somewhere where others can view it to motivate them to stay quit.
The app is all whacked out right now and I hope they get it working soon.
This app is definitely helping me with the distractions & checkins. However, it does not calculate my savings, or my quit time correctly. It does show my correct quit date, but says I’ve been smoke free for under 24 hours. I believe if I could see how much money I’m saving & how long I’ve been quit, along with health updates it would be even better. Oh, and the brag button would be amazing, but it doesn’t work for me. All-in-all, it’s helping, but could be better.
