Smoking is one of the hardest habits to change. Stop Smoking (Android) and Smoke Free (iOS) both can keep you motivated.

These apps track things such as:

  • Number of cigarettes you have not smoked
  • Money you have saved
  • How many hours of life you have regained in improved health

For a more spiritual method, try Stop Smoking — Mindfulness Meditation App (iOS). It gives you a choice of voices and sounds, such as nature or rain, to help you stop cravings with a Zen-like approach.
