Not only are AS3 subscribers intelligent, witty, sympathetic and
well-informed ... they're also creative! Several meter programs designed
for and by AS3'ers are available, free of charge - just remember to
credit the creator if you pass the meter around. You can get any of them
as instructed, or if that fails, by e-mailing the author. At minimum,
the meters calculate data such as the time you've been smober, how many
cigarettes you haven't smoked, and how much money you've saved since you
quit. Several have other features as well.
Since the SilkQuit link doesn't offer any Mac meters, people sometimes ask
for them, so here's a more comprehensive list of links to meters for a variety

This question comes up occassionally, especially with new quitters. Most people agree that a meter is meant to be used as the quitter sees fit.
As Mike 'Hawkeye' puts it:
"The meter you have is a tool kind of like gum and patches however people keep their meters far longer in most instances. People keep their meters because it's something they are proud of and it can help them in times when they feel weak. The meter is for YOU and nobody else. If you slip during your quit should you reset your meter or just leave it?
Do whatever you want with it so long as it helps your quitting process. You must do whatever you feel is right for you. If you feel it will help you to reset it then by all means do so. If you feel that it will help you more by not resetting then do not reset it. It is what will help YOU the most to stay quit that is important."
Most people I have talked to agree with Hawkeye. Do whatever you please with your meter. It is your tool to help you and belongs to nobody else!
