Ratings and Reviews
So far so good, slip up button needed :)
I only really use it to keep track of the days since quitting as I go about my life. I’m not thinking about it and don’t want to have to sit down and look back through the diary counting to know. I also like the $$ counter, as $$ is the main motivation for quitting this time round. Would like a slip up button so I can see when I’ve slipped up and how many times.
Urgent upgrade required!!!
- The community section is the main way of giving and receiving support. This used to be a great but some anonymous users are deliberately deleting people's posts by hitting 'report' ( can easily accidentally hit report as well as it's positioned too close to where users scroll down to read messages) and leaving very unhelpful and hurtful messages. This is causing existing users to leave and preventing new ones from joining. Users have been leaving feedback in the appropriate section of the app and emailing the Commonwealth Department of Health Quitnow Campaign since 2017 ( now May 2018). Things have not improved - When you reply to a message and its too long it notifies you that it's too long but then deletes the reply and you have to start all over again. Very frustrating. - Needs more distracting games as there is only fruit sorter. - If the Australian Commonwealth Government Department of Health are serious about reducing smoking rates they would listen to concerns and suggestions for improvements and upgrade this app urgently!
Helped me STOP
I love this app ! The moment I put my goals in and took a photo of my daughter as my motivation to stop smoking - it worked like a charm and I thank the makers of this app because it really helped me as
I’d go into this app on a daily basis and look at the photo and think of my daughter - plus all the other useful tips it gives you about your body’s recovery as what stage you are at - If you are still smoking those nasty god forsaken cigarettes that cost an arm and a leg and keep going up and up in cost - then I plead with you to download the app RIGHT NOW and take your first step to a healthier life - trust me you want this life !
