Livestrong Smart Phone App for Smoking Cessation
avatar
Jonathan Foulds, PhD posted:
There are now a number of applications for smart-phones that are designed to help you to quit smoking, and I am sure there will be more over time. One that I am familiar with is the Livestrong MyQuit Coach currently available for the Iphone (and I believe soon to be available for droid etc?). This one tries to maximize your social support and remind you of your reasons for quitting by linking to social networking sites like Facebook and enabling you to upload reminders of your reasons for quitting (e.g. photos of your kids). It also helps to (maybe too much emphasis?) monitor and reduce cigarette use but is also compatible with just selecting a quit date and going with that. On this site it has good reviews so far but I would be interested to hear from anyone else out there who has used it.
