I stopped - the Facebook and Mobile App That Will Free you of Smoking, Binging and Other Addictions and Bad Habits
TEL AVIV, Israel, December 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Israel-Russian software offers new opportunities for large virtual support group that willingly recruits your Facebook friends to become part of your support ecosystem
The I stopped Facebook application (https://www.facebook.com/istopapp) - developed by the Israel-Russian Score Plug quartet, founders of the successful dating application Dating IL - harnesses the power of the social web to help you kick any disturbing addiction and hold it at bay.
Worldwide today over 60 million people define themselves as 'addicts' - addicted to cigarettes, to food, to sex, to games, etc.
I stopped is based on a simple and smart method that works - 'positive peer pressure'. Using the influence and support of our family, friends and peers to support our decision to kick addictions and bad habits.
I stopped will share your wise decision with your Facebook friends, match you up with others like you, track on your behalf your recovery process, and monitor your progress. Furthermore, it will also encourage a little friendly competition between you and other addicts on your journey toward recovery.
According to psychologist Rachel Greenberg, "the element of sharing and group support has been proven thousands of times in the past as being especially effective in kicking addictions, small and large alike. There is a reason AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) has become a huge international organization helping alcoholics and drug addicts worldwide to get clean," she explains. She further added, "Research has shown that a support group has a lot of power, both in spurring its members, as well as in creating a commitment towards the rest of the group members, to get clean and stay clean."
"My friend quit smoking thanks to one of the HMO's groups," explains Melenboim. "She posted a picture of her graduation certificate on Facebook, received a lot of responses and likes and these gave her the strength to continue. This app is based on the same principle - you commit in front of everyone you know. This provides you with motivation, but also with a strong commitment to stick to your decision. No one wants to disappoint their friends and loved ones."
Since going live on Facebook less than three weeks ago, I stopped already gained over 10,000 likes and counting . . .
