Quit Smoking Best Apps
We selected these apps based on their usability, user ratings, frequent updates, and overall impact in making a valuable contribution to people’s efforts to quit smoking.
Quitting smoking can be incredibly difficult, but it is ultimately worth the struggle. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cigarettes contain over 7,000 chemicals, and about 70 of those can cause cancer. Smoking also causes heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), respiratory problems, fertility issues, and more.
However, quitting at any stage has proven health benefits. In the United States, about 7 out of 10 smokers report that they want to quit, and many are succeeding. According to the CDC, the number of former smokers has been larger than the number of current smokers since 2002.
Fortunately, nicotine gum and going cold turkey are no longer the only options, because we now have many technological tools that can help. Check out our picks for the best quit smoking apps of the year.
