Smokers can now quit smoking via a special Tobacco Quit and Save application that also tells them how much they have saved by not buying tobacco products.
Tobacco Quit and Save is a no-cost app for Android and iPhone gadgets. It is an absolutely wonderful device. Not only does it monitor the amount of days you have gone without a “cancer stick” but it also lets you know the exact amount of money you have saved so far by not buying the useless and addictive products.
And as if that were not enough, the app even allows you to take a predictive peek into the future. The number of days you will add to your life is clearly written out to inspire you to stay committed to a tobacco-free existence. Pep phrases to keep you going at it are provided to boot.
"Tobacco Quit and Save is a free app available for Android and iPhone mobile devices. The app automatically tracks each day you go without a cigarette, money you’re saving, and days added onto your life. The location-aware app also provides motivational messages to help you stay tobacco free," states the app website.
Now what else could you want. Whether you are smoking or have quit, either way the app is a big help. And if you want to lend a buddy a little assistance in quitting the “coffin nails”, there too the application will be of immense benefit. How far you have come in your goal of a nicotine-free life and the oodles of cigarettes you have foregone will be included in the checklist.
"Everyone has phones, and most people are accessing their day-to-day information on their phone," said Dave Brendsel, a spokesman for the state's prevention services division. "For smokers, this seemed like a great way to keep motivated to quit smoking."
The really good thing is that this app allows you to connect with Facebook and Twitter. Therefore, you can get the support of family, friends and any fans you may have if you are famous. And while cigarette smoking is a hard habit to break, it is not impossible.
You just have to get up again over and over even if you falter in your efforts. Remember, the winner never quits and the quitter never wins. The style of weaning yourself off cigarette smoke is uniquely your own. Don’t follow anyone else’s example.
Follow your heart and choose your own selective method. After a long and rocky road you will have progressed to the point where the smell of cigarette smoke will have left you forever. The app employs a GPS system to test your willpower by telling you that a tobacconist is nearby and that you ought to avoid it at all costs.
It sure cost the makers a lot to create from scratch but now that the campaign to end smoking is well into its nascent phases, the app will come in handy.
