As featured in The Times of India, Wired, Mail Online, Metro, Evening Standard, The Mirror, Pharmatimes and TechCrunch. 5 STARS FROM OUR USERS “Quit Genius has so far been the most effective approach to motivate me to stop smoking. It helps you to understand what triggers your addiction on a deep level. What I like best is the app is designed to be there for you even after you’ve quit. I’ve not smoked for over 3 months.” by joanikin. “I've been trying to quit smoking for the best part of 2 years. I got it down from smoking at every given opportunity to about 5 a day by myself but Quit Genius helped me get over that final hurdle and give up altogether. I've now been smoke free for about 6 weeks and I've never felt better. Would recommend to anyone who needs that additional support but does not have the money / time to see a specialist in person - this app is just as helpful!” Bennyboilerman DESCRIPTION Quit Genius is the #1 app to quit smoking.
