Track your stop smoking progress with our NHS Stop Smoking iPhone app and desktop widget.

The iPhone app and the desktop widget give you a daily motivational message to support you during the first 30 days of stopping smoking, plus instant tips and facts at any time.

The real-time counter on each displays the minutes, hours and days you've been smoke free, and keeps track of the money you've saved.

Key features:

  • Daily messages to support and motivate
  • Instant tips from other smokers who've successfully stopped
  • Facts to show the benefits of staying smoke free
  • Real-time counter to show the time since you stopped
  • Links to real-life stories, features and videos
  • Direct line to the NHS Smoking Helpline

Stop Smoking iPhone app

Download the app
Enter the number of cigarettes you smoke a day on average. Adjust the quit date to match the day and time you stopped. You can adjust this at any time, so you can easily reset the app if you relapse.

Daily message
The app automatically updates every 24 hours with a new motivational message to support you during the first 30 days of stopping. Each message includes a link to get more information. At the end of 30 days you can keep the counter going for as long as you want.

Top tips and facts
These can be activated at any time. They provide instant facts, tips and ideas to help you successfully stay smoke free.

You can speak to an adviser by tapping the NHS Smoking Helpline button. The helpline is available seven days a week, 9am to 8pm Monday to Friday, and 11am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Stop Smoking desktop widget

Getting started is easy
Once you've decided you're ready to quit, download the widget to your computer. This takes less than a minute. Enter the number of cigarettes you smoke a day on average, and adjust the quit date to match the day and time you want to stop. You can adjust this at any time, so if you relapse you can reset by simply clicking on the information button.

Daily message, ideas and helpline
The widget gives you a daily message, access to top tips, ideas and facts, and a direct link to the NHS Stop Smoking Helpline in the same way as the iPhone app.
