QuitCount: what did I save since smoking?

Paul (my friend, not my son) said to me some time ago, “Still obsessed with smoking, I see ;-)”. That made me realize that indeed, stopping smoking sometimes make me think more about it than I did when I smoked. I guess that’s rather logical, I’m still in the long process of readjustment (of my habits, my neurons and my brain). My sister quit years ago and still thinks of it from time to time, too. She showed me she still has a quit counter widget loaded on her Mac OS X, with really big numbers on it, and I looked for one on my XFCE desktop. I didn’t find any, though, so I wrote one myself :-)

Ladies and gentlemen, I hereby present you QuitCount, a little piece of software that has no other practical value than keeping yourself motivated if you try and quit smoking, and in a second phase, impressing yourself with big numbers (I already didn’t inhale more than 12 grams of tar).

You can also use it as a start counter to see how much you smoked since you started, but don’t; that’s scary.

Nice Colin :)
This idea is quite nice, I didn’t yet looked at the sources but I guess this is a standalone application and not an XFCE Panel plugin, right?

Ciao

Hey, thanks iwkse! Indeed, I’ve made it a standalone application, there was no advantage to link this to any desktop :)

Salut,

J’ai justement installé ton soft sur mon kubuntu Jaunty, cela fonctionne à merveille ! Par contre ne n’es pas trop compris pourquoi au bout de 6 ou 7 jours, l’icone dans le systray à changé, c’est passé d’une cigarette à un pouce levé.
Pourquoi donc ?

Ha ok !
En effet aujourd’hui c’est marqué “1 semaine”
Mais hier c’était marqué “13h de gagné…” je voyais pas trop l’anniv dans ce cas là :-D
Sympa ton compteur tout de même
