There really isn't much that your Android
device can't do. You can not only
lose weight with your Smartphone, but now there are a number of
options for using your cell phone to quit smoking.
Of course none of them are going to be as effective as the
How to Quit Smoking in Ten Seconds..Guaranteed method, but
you can use your Android to help. On your Android, you can
directly download an app designed to help you quit smoking. This
Quit Smoking app is essentially a widget that you can use to
wean yourself off of cigarettes at your own pace. Since I'm a
cigar smoker with no real desire to quit, I didn't actually
use this app, but I must admit it looks pretty cool and I can
see where it could be effective.
This Quit Smoking app will help you realize just how much you're
smoking, and will track your monetary savings based on how much you
actually pay for a pack of cigarettes. If you visit the GooglePlay
store on your Android phone you'll find a number of free and paids
apps designed to help you become a non-smoker.
Another way to quit smoking using your Android device or other
Smartphone, according to the developers, is to play a game called
Cigarette Fighter. This is an Android game app that, I'm told,
is not all that much unlike the Fruit Slice game. In this version,
cigarettes and cigars come floating onto the screen and you have to
click on them to slice them up before they settle back into wherever
floating tobacco items go when they stop floating. If you don't
slice them up before they settle, you are penalized. Three screw ups
and the game is over. You also lose if you happen to try to slice up
anything that isn't a tobacco product. Like a Bic lighter.
Because I didn't instantly uninstall the game, I guess I kind of
like it. I can see myself playing it from time to time to see if I
can beat my previous high score. But, how exactly does it help you
to stop smoking?
[Note: August 9, 2012 - I have uninstalled it now because the game
is one of those apps which installs an "ad pusher" on your phone so
you will be continually notified with annoying ads. Bad call,
I guess if, every time you want to light up a cigarette, you play
the game instead, it could help you quit. But then again, you could
quit smoking by playing
whenever you want a smoke as well. And it's a much more fun game.
So, I got to thinking about what the most effective method people
are using to quit smoking is, and my search led me right to
Do electronic cigarettes really help you quit smoking?
I've heard many claims that when you use electronic cigarette you're
still inhaling nicotine and it really isn't that much safer than
actually smoking. From all of the reports and research I've found
online, that simply isn't true. Sure you're still getting a nicotine
fix, but you're missing out on the more than 4,000 other chemicals
which have been added to tobacco cigarettes.
So, do electronic cigarettes really work in helping you quit
smoking? I'm thinking, yes. It gives you that crutch so you have
something to hold onto and fixate your orals on, plus you're not
being exposed to all of the other carcinogens present in "real"
Here are a few of the more popular electronic cigarettes and other
