Craving To Quit is a 21-day program based on a successful smoking cessation program developed and tested at Yale University. A clinical trial of this program delivered as a group-based in-person training over 4 weeks proved to be twice as effective as the gold standard treatment.

Craving to Quit provides daily instruction through playlists of audio and video tracks, goal-setting tools, and daily reminders. As you progress through the program, we will walk you down to 0 cigarettes/day by giving you the tools you need to successfully quit smoking – one step at a time.

Success Stories:

"I began this program a skeptic, but saw its benefits almost immediately. I went from smoking 10 cigarettes a day, literally afraid to leave the house without a pack and a lighter -- and after 21 days I have been able to stop smoking altogether. This would never have been possible without Craving to Quit.
- Michael, Washington, D.C.

"During the couple of weeks I used [Craving to Quit], I learned many skills that I apply on a daily basis. Learning to surf my way through cravings was the best thing I learned because I no longer give in to craving cigarettes like before. I tested this skill while on a recent trip to Las Vegas where smoking is prevalent…I can now say cigarettes are not part of my life as before."
- Robert, San Bernardino, CA

Empowering Approach to Quitting

I’ve only attempted to quit smoking one other time and was convinced that I would never be strong enough to manage it after my first (and only) fail. My personal mindset had usually defaulted to “if at first you don’t succeed, admit you’re a weakling destined to fail.”

My doctor prescribed Chantix and a friend recommended that I try this app in conjunction with the medication. While I do believe that the medicine helped with the physical side-effects, I credit this app for fixing my head game. And honestly - I now believe quitting is 100% a head game!

Even I couldn’t con myself out of believing the science behind the lessons - it all just made sense and allowed me to recognize the control that I do have over smoking. The lessons were well executed, short, and not at all preachy or condescending.

This app made what was once a daunting and unachievable wish into a doable decision and I’m ever so grateful. It was worth every penny and I’m pleased to report that I have been smoke-free for three months and am still using the techniques I learned here to keep my head game strong. Highly recommend!

You have to be ready to be mindful

I bought this app a while ago, started it twice and quickly gave up mostly because I found being mindful very uncomfortable. Too many emotional issues were bubbling to the surface & I didn’t want to deal with them.

I started meditating about a month ago (using Calm & then 10% Happier). Beginning meditating really helped me start this process with much more success. I’m a week in, smoking less & feeling cautiously optimistic. 7 days may not seem like much but for me it is a big deal. I’ll update my review as things progress.

As for the app - it isn’t perfect. I agree with the reviewer re: having to reset the app to start over. When you do it, the app asks you not to but doesn’t give you the option of going back to Day 1 any other way.

I am so grateful for this app, I’m not quite sure how to express it. I chewed a can of Copenhagen a day for the last 22 years and thought I might not ever be able to quit. I spent 6 months with this app before I picked a quit date and when the time came, I was ready to let go. It felt good to let go and I wanted to let go. I am chewing tobacco free today and feel like a new man
You can use these practices for any gripping substance or bad habit you have in your life, this is not limited to smoking cigarettes. The world would be a better place if everyone used this app
