Quick search on this topic only brought something back from 2014, so I thought I would ask afresh.... I am particularly looking for android apps, or maybe something that can link in to my google account, to make it simpler both on laptop and mobile....   Anyone got any info??   Like/Love/Hate any particular one etc???   :mrgreen:    Bless you for any responses....  (legible and legal ones that is).....  :wink:

Are we allowed to talk about QuitNet on here?  If so:  I have QuitNet on my phone...

 

If not, I've never heard of it...why?

You speak a language I am not familiar with, my best App ( A proper punishment) was a large bucket of icy water over the head every time I thought about seriously smoking  ;)

Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "

I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!

Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman

Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think

Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!

Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.

If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!

" I am a puff away form a pack a day"

Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.

I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit,  I ate it.

Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.

I have quit forever on my kindle fire. It shows the same things as our stickers plus stuff like how many days of life we've gained. But then I found this place and hardly used it anymore.

Thanks Frank.... I'm well known for carrying extra sets of clothes in the car along with blankets and pillows, but felt I needed something I could carry with me when I was in work, and not able to access the internet (I work for a local Council - so our internet usage is tracked)  :-? 

 

However....  just been playing with my new phone, and also found I can access this forum on it....  not sure if I will be able to get internet access at work, but can always try....   and maybe keep just a couple of litre bottles of icy water in car boot in case of emergencies...    :shock:

I am like a dinosaur when it comes to apps so I am seriously asking this question. How does an app help you stay quit? How does it work?

I can only comment on the kindle app but it helped me before I found this place by showing me the same stats as my ticker does here as well as health benefits etc. For me it's an accountability tool to show me what I would be giving up :)

When I put it on my kindle I hadn't found this place yet. But the app did show me everything I said above in quicker to see info as in I didn't have to search to see how many days of life I had gained or how much my lungs, circulation and blood pressure  were improving. After finding this place I rarely opened it unless I was comparing the app against my ticker. Also my kindle has a great calendar app like Wayne said above that enables me to do these celebrations easier. And as an added bonus I just found the calendar app on my computer so I can have a back up should my kindle die because apparently I can't back the calendar up in Kindle

If you can answer "How does QSMB help you stay quit?" then you know the answer... :-D

um i have an app that sends me messages when I hit milestones. It has a memory game on it that you can play to ward off cravings (yes it works). First sms I got at midnight on new years eve was the app to wish me a happy smoke free 2018. I found it in google apps. It has a little green man karate kicking a smoke in half. Can't think what its called because my phone is flat. Not sure if we are allowed to share either being a newbie. It has no chat feature and is free and you don't have to pay for upgrades to get all the features.

Hi​ avian....   nothing we don't have on here,  but as I am back in my hell, heck, wtf weeks (due to my own stupidity) it helps me when I am having a crave... without internet access I can get on to things like health checks, motivational cheers, but probably, most importantly, notes and games....  gives me time out when crave is really bad... like they are right now....    :evil:   and allows me to use it at desk at work under my diary (lol) cos I work in an open office and all can see what's on our 2 main screen computers....
