App set to aid smokers kick the habit!

With a combination of mindfulness techniques and scientific research a new app launches this week to help smokers give up cigarettes for good.

Lifeboat is an innovative take-anywhere solution which offers users inspiring daily sessions and tasks to help them kick the habit, anytime any place.

Lifeboat’s research suggests that just a quarter of smokers that attempt to kick the habit are successful six weeks after the quit date. On average it also takes smokers four attempts to give up cigarettes before they find success or stop trying. Lifeboat’s goal is to improve these numbers, working towards a 50% success rate for users completing its two-part programme.

The design of the app means Lifeboat subscribers have a daily audio session with a personal coach each morning. The sessions focus on mindfulness and giving smokers motivation they can utilise once they give up tobacco. The programme will also give actionable tasks that can be completed throughout the day, all designed to improve confidence, self-esteem and break routines.

The easy to use interface and design of the app means that users can effortlessly track their progress and see how they are working towards their end goal of giving up cigarettes for good.

Lifeboat integrates a number of scientific findings with mindfulness sessions – this is unique to the app. This means that both withdrawal symptoms arising from quitting smoking and cravings are among the issues the developers considered when creating the programme.

The difficulty that smokers face when they attempt to quit is well known and many struggle when they simply go cold turkey. The app is split into two distinct sections to overcome this, with the initial 15-day Pre-Quit focussing on building up motivation and working with users in preparation for ‘Life Day’ – the day they quit smoking.

Once users have had their final cigarette they are then supported with daily audio sessions for an additional 30 days to ensure success.
