The popular stop-smoking iOS app Crush the Crave has been updated
One of the things about having “Mad Men” on TV is it totally reminds me how much friggin’ cigarette smoking used to go on Back in the Day. Seriously, it’s hard to believe now, what with smoking being banned basically everywhere but private homes–and most people not even smoking there any more (my own step mom goes outside her own house, where she lives alone, to smoke; that’s how you know when something has significantly changed)–but there used to be smoking everywhere. I mean, everywhere. Airplanes and buses and restaurants and public parks. Used to be there were public ash trays all over the place, and you would see cigarette butts everywhere. No more. (Now even French restaurants in Paris have no-smoking sections!)
But once you get that habit, it’s durn tough to kick. Which is why there’s still a need for something like the Crush the Crave app. This app was designed by the Propel Centre for Population Health Impact at the University of Waterloo. The app has features that allow you to track your progress in quitting, registering milestones, reminding you how much dough you’ve saved, and many others. The new version has cool help screens and a customized quit plan to help you monitor your habits, understand the cravings, and quite a few more.
Been needing some help in kicking your smoking habit? Maybe this is what you need. Surf on over and check it out; it’s available from the iTunes app store for an MSRP of $FREE. And if you get it and use it, be sure to let us know how it works out for you below!
