    I think this is fantastic! Thanks for the review of these great tools, and they can only help, and create some excitement to the new non-smoker, in helping them with their quit. I do think that it is important that each smoker realizes that they are more powerful than they think they are, and that their quit is only a few steps away.

    It’s great! I’ve been looking
    for something like this ever since I’ve decided to quit smoking. I
    know that it won’t be an easy thing to do, but as they say there’s no harm in
    trying right? Nothing can be done if we just let everything slide away. Once we
    have decided on something we should do something about it right away.

    Hi, there’s a brand new quit smoking app for iPhone. It’s called “Quit Pro” and basically helps you track all your cigarettes or cravings (if you’ve already completely quit) to better understand when, why and even where you smoke or resist the most. It then produces beautiful stats and heat maps. Give it a try.

    There’s a demo video here:

    And you can download the app from the App Store here:
