App to Help Stop Smoking

A friend told me this joke one time and it stuck with me.  One of my other favorites was “Smoking is the easiest habit in the world to quit.  I have done it 27 times.”  Smoking is a serious public health issue and the challenges to quit are immense.  As a dentist I feel we are the first line of defense in oral cancer detection, much of which is related to tobacco use.  Smoke Free is an app to help smokers by providing relevant feedback.  You type in some individualized information and the app shares some motivational stats to help you.  The app also contains a diary and a series of progress panels that show positive information to help keep smokers get through the most difficult times to achieve their goals.  The app is simple to use and packed with useful features.  Check it out and let us know your feedback!
