Are you concerned with your health and want to do something to improve things this year? One of the best things you can start with is kicking the habit of smoking. It’s not easy, but like any habit formed over time, smoking can be reversed and eventually it becomes a habit not to desire smoking anymore. The good news is that there is modern technology to help support a healthier lifestyle, including mobile apps that support your quest to stop smoking.
Here are a few mobile apps that can help you quit smoking for good.
Track what causes you to pick up a cigarette in the first place – or triggers as they are called. Track these triggers, such as moods or situations that make you want to smoke. The app also tracks how many times you’ve smoked and how many you have cut down on, to encourage you to gradually quit smoking forever.
Being able to see your progress when quitting smoking is the goal of this mobile app. Not only that, but you can also see other motivators, such as the money you’ve saved by not smoking, and the improvements you’ve made in your health while you progress. This is a good app for those who respond well to facts and figures.
