      Cold Turkey vs Forest opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Cold Turkey is a great alternative to Forest.
      Forest is based on a completely different concept than cold turkey, cold turkey is more or less just a blocker whereas Forest is a productivity app which forces the person to stay and work and not waste time for a set amount of time
