There are a lot of habits out there that are bad for your health, but smoking has to be the nastiest one. Besides turning your lungs black, you also get that smoker smell that stays with you until you quit. But I’m not here to lecture you since I’m sure you already know how bad smoking is for you.
However, if you think you’ve had enough and want to try to quit smoking, there are various apps you can try. With the following apps you’ll be able to see things such as how much money you’re saving, how many days you’ve gone without smoking, and more.
1. QuitNow!: Quit Smoking
QuitNow!: Quit Smoking is one of the most popular apps that can help you stop smoking. It starts by asking you how many cigarettes you usually have during the day, how many cigarettes were in a pack, how much you paid for the box, etc.
It offers inspiring information, such as:
- Achievements – See all of your achievements such as going a day without smoking, saving minutes from your life, how much money you saved, etc.
- Community – Chat with other people that are also trying to quit smoking and get the support to fight the urge to smoke a cigarette.
- Health – This section will show you information such as how your blood pressure has improved, the remaining amount of nicotine, how much sudden death has decreased, how your physical condition has improved, etc.
2. Smoke Free
Smoke Free is an app that offers features that the first app doesn’t. With Smoke Free you can keep a journal of your progress, jot down everything about the cravings you have, do daily tasks to improve your chances of quitting, and earn badges for not smoking.
The app lets you share everything about how well you’re doing. You can share your latest achievements, your progress, your missions, your health improvements, smoke-free time and how much money you’ve saved.
Not smoking can make time almost stand still. That’s why it shows you how long you’ve gone without smoking and how much money you’ve saved just as soon as you open the app. In the app’s settings you can also do things such as reset your data, set reminders and also upgrade to the app’s Pro version.
3. Quit Tracker: Stop Smocking
An app that has unique features of its own is Quit Tracker: Stop Smoking. Just like the other apps, you can get information such as how long you’ve gone smoke-free, how much money you’ve saved, and how much life you’ve gained.
A feature only in this app can tell you when you’ll have enough money to buy something by not smoking. For example, depending on the information you entered at the beginning, if you didn’t smoke for three days, you’d have enough money to buy yourself some socks. If you didn’t smoke for a month, you’d have enough money to purchase a computer. It also features a memory game you can play to distract yourself and help you take your mind off smoking.
4. Quitify for Quit Smoking!

On the app’s main page you can see information such as how much money you’ve spent, how much anxiety you’ll experience, how many days you’ve gone without smoking, how many hours of life you’ve recovered and any cigarettes you did smoke.
Tap on the app’s hamburger icon, and you can gain access to options such as tips to deal with your anxiety, your badges, how your quality of life has improved, how your health has improved and more. There is also an option to share your information.
