Cigs out, cash inSteve Stills
I’ve been 2 months smoke free now, and while you need motivation yourself this app really helps you keep it. Wish it had been available years ago !

This app is genius. I've found it pretty easy to quit, no nicotine patches just willpower & the right frame of mind. Download it & quit - it's great being a non smoker after 20 years.
The most aesthetically pleasing app of its kind I’ve come across, feels rewarding to use as it clearly indicates length of time savings and cigarettes not smoked. It’s actually got me excited about quitting!
This app is great. There are loads of apps that do the job. But this is by far the best. Get this app. Best of luck with quitting. I’m doing it. So can you!
Five star quit smoking appCharlottefarnworth
This is a great app to help you quit smoking. It tracks how long you have given up, how much you have saved, and how many cigs you have gone without. A must for anyone quitting for good!!! Very motivating :)
Fantastic free appUnrealed
Loads of features, can’t believe it’s free! Makes it easier to stay determined watching the money totalling up.
Seeing the health improvements over time is incredibly motivating.
A really inspiring app that takes in information about you, and offers good day to day support, including daily information on the impact quiting has on your health. Dash board also keeps me up to date with money saved. So far I’m two days smoke free! Yippee!

The bestLee hunter87
It really does help me as money is a huge factor for me quitting. It shows me how much I've saved which is shockingly brilliant.
I'm am truly happy with this app. It helps with motivation and also keeps you focusing on the positive and keeps track of all the important info you could ever wonder about. Would really recommend.
Best stop smoking app ever. Really helped me 5*
Definitely the best stop smoking app. The diary reminders are a stroke of genius. I've already recommended it to others.
One of main motivators of quitting by will power alone for me is the health progress section of this app. Lots of missions & reflection for yourself plus opportunity to contribute to research if you wish. Best app I've used.

What does the Life Regained figure mean?
The life regained figure shows how much more life you have gained by giving up smoking. It is calculated in the following way. On average a smoker who quits at age 35 lives 10 years longer than people who continue to smoke (Doll et al., 2004, BMJ). If 75 is an average lifespan, this means that someone who quits at 35 will regain about a quarter of their life, or six hours for every 24 hours not smoked. Do remember, these figures are approximate, many people quit smoking after 35 and you need to stay quit to regain this amount of life.
And the "The time not spent smoking" one?
This shows you how much time you haven't spent filling your lungs with noxious fumes. It is calculated by multiplying the number of cigarettes you've not smoked by five minutes (e.g. 20 cigarettes not smoked = 100 minutes not spent smoking).
Why are we charging?
A version of Smoke Free will always be free to use. This version will be at least as good as the other free apps available. And we’ll keep improving it.
We’ll use the free app to learn what techniques help people stop smoking. You don’t have to take part in these experiments and can use the app fully and for free if you opt-out. If you take part, fantastic, that will make our evidence stronger and we'll publish this evidence so others can benefit. This means that just by using the app you’ll be helping more people quit smoking.
When we find what works we’ll put that into a version of the app that people can pay for if they want. The money we raise will go into improving Smoke Free and creating other apps that help people change their behaviour.
You don’t have to pay for Smoke Free. Our free app will contain the same features the other free apps do, plus it will be beautifully designed and a joy to use. But if you need more help you can pay a small sum for something that we can say with confidence is effective. And you’ll be helping us build the best damn behaviour change company in the world.
Do I have to take part in the experiment to use the app?
No, all the app's features will work regardless whether you participate in the experiment or not. However, it'd be great if you could complete the daily smoking diary, as the information you give about your cravings might help the quitters who follow be more successful. Plus other users have said that they found keeping a diary helped.
I use nicotine replacement and/or an e-cigarette, can I take part?
You can. I'm not testing whether the app helps people stop smoking on its own but rather, whether aspects of it work better than others. I also ask about any NRT you may be using in the questionnaire you'll see when you register and at one month and three months after your quit date. So using NRT won't affect the experiment at all.
Can I change details about my smoking?
Just go to:
Help >> App Settings >> Change smoking data
Settings >> Smoking data
You'll be able to change the cost of your cigarettes, how many you smoke each day; things like that
Can I change my quit date?
Easily, if you go to:
Help >> App Settings >> Change quit date
Settings >> Change quit date
This will reset the amount of time you’ve been smoke free, the amount of money you’ve saved, how many cigarettes you haven’t smoked and any badges you may have earned.
How do I turn off or change the time of the reminders?
The reminders can be found in the Help tab of the app. You can stop them happening entirely, or change when they appear.
Help >> App settings >> Notifications
How do I change the currency settings?
[phone] Settings >> General >> Language & Region >> Region
[app] Settings >> Smoking data >> What's your currency?
What else can I change?
There's a good few options in the Help tab. Have a play around, you probably won't break anything.
