With NicoStop, you specify how many cigarettes you smoke per day, the time you wake up in the morning, and the time you go to sleep. You also specify how long you would like to take to quit smoking. Once complete, NicoStop will schedule your cigarettes each day spanning the time you wake up and when you go to bed. A progress bar at the bottom of the screen shows you how far along you are in your overall time span. The date and time of your next cigarette is show, along with a live countdown until your next cigarette. To help you along, in case you are losing motivation, an inspirational message is displayed on the screen each time you run the program.
