“What I find most helpful is the community. I love it! Having a good day or bad you always get words of encouragement.” -- Whitwhit33
“With my decision to quit and the help of this easy to use system with achievement based goals to get you a little hyped about getting healthier.” -- Princesskitten420
“I don’t think I could have made it this far without this app and the people. Every morning before I get out of bed and every evening before falling asleep, I read through the messages of other people’s success stories, their struggles, what motivates and inspires them to quit, and I realize I am not in this fight along. I have other people I can count on for help. This app has helped me and anyone who is wanting to quit should be a part of this community. It will help you succeed too.” -- Jovita74
“Most helpful (to my surprise) was the ability to track cravings and watch them taper off as the weeks went by (i.e. see quantifiable proof that it actually IS getting easier). Also was nice to have something that I could DO when I was having a craving, rather than just grit my teeth and bear it.” -- Polly Glossia

Ratings and Reviews
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!
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!!
Best app for quitters
The app is a huge help for logging your intake and cravings, while automatically reducing your limit for you. As long as you can slightly self discipline yourself and fight a few cravings it's pretty easy to control your budget. I've been on the app for almost 10 days and have come in under budget every day besides one day I hit my budget limit but not over. The achievements are fun to play along with and help push yourself a little further, but more achievements could be a help in future updates. The community posts are really an amazing feature because everyone is there to quit so you have a lot of support that actually understands what your going thru. Amazing support system if you utilize the community. My only real criticisms would be that It would be nice to get real notifications from the community posts and it would be nice to somehow save a "friends list" making it easier to check in or contact people you are in support with maybe a private message option, but completely open community is nice to keep the community going
