Hi, there's a brand new quit smoking app for iPhone. It's called "Quit Pro" and basically helps you track all your cigarettes or cravings (if you've already completely quit) to better understand when, why and even where you smoke or resist the most. It then produces beautiful stats and heat maps. Give it a try. There's a demo video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Parndj9dZ4 And you can download the app from the App Store here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id336786774
