Start tracking

Make the right goals

Effectively manage your expectations

Say know to thy self

When attempting to cut back, it's essential to make smart goals. It's common to underestimate how much you're doing something if you let it be subconcious. Start by trying to identify how much you really do and spend on your habit!

Don't start by trying to quit. Start by waiting longer than normal. Try to wait an hour longer than usual, for example. It is incredibly important to motivation and success that you are able to track your successes. Find ways to incentivize yourself. Even if quitting is your ultimate goal, the small wins are what's going get you there.

Make subconcious successes visible

How can you quantify the absence of something?

Get to know your own behavior

Recognizing the number of times you've thought about doing it, but decided not to is near impossible. Knowing precisely how often you give into a craving is all about giving more weight to resisting action. If you track your successes with an app, you'll be able to see exactly how hard you're already fighting.

You're doing better than you think. Escrave can help you by leaving a physical remainder when you 'resist', so you can begin to tip the scales in your favor.

Observe your progress as you go

The Addiction Solution by Lloyd Sederer, MD – Review

lloyd-sederer: the addiction solution book cover

The Addiction solution covers a wide range of addictions, how our society tries to deal with drug dependence, and what would ideally be done to recover the people lost (and prevent further generations from becoming lost) in repetitive destructive behaviors. Take particular note of my […]

Making subconscious decisions, consciously

Van Gogh painting of a skeleton smoking

What I most can’t stand to see in myself, is the contradiction between not wanting to do something yet seeing myself do it anyways. So I made this web application to bridge that gap – not necessarily to quit, but rather to find a middle […]

Recognizing and accepting cravings

It’s not so difficult to know how much you spend on a habit, most people are already keeping track in their heads, or can estimate it well (even if they don’t really want to think about it while spending money on it!). They could probably […]


Keeping your guilty pleasure anonymous

Escrave is available to use without creating an account and operates entirely on your personal device. This means that we do not store any of the data you create with it. Escrave does not even use analytics tools to get information about you.

The data that users create is decentralized by nature, because your device is storing your own version of Escrave.

To add security and anonymity, you do not specify to Escrave what you’re using it to track. Even if somebody acquired your data, they would have no idea what it was about.

Escrave was built this way to make it easier to be honest with yourself.
