The need to know about digital apps

Why use apps?

A digital app can give you instant support whenever you need it.

They can help you plan ahead and are somewhere to turn to quickly when you feel the urge to smoke or find yourself struggling.

What do the experts say?

When used in combination with other quit smoking supports (NRT or prescribed medication, e-cigarettes, or motivational support), health experts say digital apps can be a useful way to help you give up cigarettes for good.

Which apps work?

Each digital app has different features to help you stop smoking. Some tips and resources may work better for you than others. ORCHA provides an independent review of digital health apps.

Combining your choices

You don’t have to rely on just one method to quit. You are more likely to quit smoking by mixing and matching personal support like motivational support from a health advisor with NRT, a prescription medication or e-cigarettes. What would work best for you?

Support

There is lots of support to help you quit smoking from health advisers, they are ready with tips, information and encouragement.

Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT)

NRT are products that provide you with a low level of nicotine and so can help you fight nicotine cravings as you quit.

Digital Mobile Apps

Apps on your phone are a great way to help you quit smoking, they can help you with tips, advise and encouragement when you need them most.
