Smoking

As I have the willpower of Carrie Bradsaw in a shoe shop, I didnt expect it to work, But in a survery of 100 smokers, 94 per cent said it had helped them to smoke less - and I found the same.
Every time I reached for my cigarettes, not only was it hard to pick them up, but the ring reminded me that I was breaking my vow, so I put them away.
Emma Justice, Daily Mail

I started smoking 20 a day after a back injury caused me a lot of pain and stopped me from working as much. Now I have a new baby on the way and I am determined to cut down. I started wearing The Moderator four weeks ago and have already cut down by half. It’s the simplest thing but the ring does the job of reminding me all the time that I want to take control of my craving.

I didn’t even call myself a smoker until my friend got tired of me saying I was broke all the time. She told me in no uncertain terms that she wasn’t surprised given how much I spend on cigarettes. It got me thinking and when I heard about The Moderator I thought I would give it a go. I love the pink one for a night out and wearing it reminds me every time I get offered a cigarette that I can say no and still have a good time. Of course I still have the odd cigararette but the ring has really helped me cut down.

Snacking

When my husband brought a tin of Heroes chocolates home I chose on then replaced the lid. They've been opened a week now and there are still loads left. Now that really is unheard of in our house.

Drinking alcohol

When I read The Moderator Story I was really touched by Grant’s story. I thought that if he can reduce his drinking wearing The Moderator ring then maybe it could work for me too. I got a few comments from the lads in the pub the first time I wore it, but now they are all asking for one to help with their smoking and drinking habits. I am trying to have my normal pint and alternate it with a soft drink. Just wearing the ring reminds not only me but all my mates that I am trying to cut down.

I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t losing weight despite eating healthily and going to my Zumba class twice a week. When chatting about this at the school gates we talked through my normal day. When I got to the part about having a glass of wine at the end of the day we realised where the mysterious calories were coming from. I have started to wear The Moderator just in the evenings when I am at home. Now when I reach for that glass I think twice and sometimes I make a hot drink instead, so that the wine is a ‘twice-a- week treat’ rather than an everyday habit!

Caffeine Consumption

I’ve managed to cut my caffeine intake. Reaching for the kettle, the Moderator reminds me to count how many coffees I’ve guzzled. If it’s too many, I have a raspberry herbal tea.
Fiona Duffy, Daily Mirror

Now that we are trying for a baby, our doctor has recommended we cut down on caffeine. Between us we worked out we have about 10 cups of tea and coffee a day – which was a bit of a shocking revelation. We are both wearing the rings, especially at the weekend when we are together and partial to the café down the road. We are still going there, but wearing the rings reminds us to go for the decaf option and focus on our end goal of starting a family.

Nail-Biting

After years of gnawing my fingernails and surrounding skin, I've stopped, just like that.
Fiona Duffy, Daily Mirror

I have the most disgusting hands in human history after a lifetime of gnawing my nails and the skin around them….Having tried every (and I mean every) idea under the sun to stem my nasty, nasty habit I will honestly try anything. I’ve been wearing this little device now for three days and I have to say, I honestly think it’s working. Every time I subconsciously go to bite my nails I see the ring and refrain. I haven’t bitten them in three days, which for me is a record...All in all I think the Moderator ... is a very good idea.
Terence Conchie, LSMedia, The Independent Liverpool Student Newspaper


My daughter who is now grown-up was constantly biting her nails. It had started when she was a little girl and carried on whenever she felt stressed or anxious. Somebody told me about The Moderator and I suggested she give it a go. Although she automatically still brings her nails up to her mouth to start biting, just seeing the ring out of the corner of her eye helps her to take control over what had become totally sub-conscious repetitive behaviour. She will keep wearing the ring and we are hoping that in time she will be able to stop the nail-biting altogether.
