We were both long term smokers and we were both at our "nth" try of quitting smoking. This time we managed not to relapse after just a few days or so, and one of the reasons for that is the fact that we both used several motivational apps on our smartphones. Besides my Android smartphone I also use a Nokia Lumia 930 with Windows 10 Mobile on it.
