My QuitBuddy app

My QuitBuddy is an app that helps you get, and stay, smoke-free and vape-free. It provides helpful tips to overcome cravings and tracking systems to chart your progress. My QuitBuddy gives you the facts you need to understand the impacts smoking and vaping have on your health.

The Australian Government announced funding to redevelop and modernise the My QuitBuddy app in the 2023–24 Budget. A refreshed version, updated to include support to quit vaping as well as smoking, is available for download now. There will be ongoing updates from mid-2024, including improved quit plans, games, and forum features.
