Whatever your goal, you can do it with MyDrinkaware.
There are lots of benefits to cutting back your drinking or even stopping drinking alcohol completely. Your sleep can improve, your mood will be brighter, you’ll find it easier to concentrate and there are lots of long-term health benefits, to name a few.
MyDrinkaware is different from other apps on the market. Other apps allow you to track your drinking habits, but that’s all they do. By tracking units, drink-free days, and sleep quality, side-by-side, MyDrinkaware guides users towards a healthier lifestyle.
Have you ever considered cutting down on drinking before but not known where to start? MyDrinkaware is built to guide realistic lifestyle changes. Setting unmanageable goals can often lead to giving up altogether. That’s why MyDrinkaware is different:
- Our app celebrates your wins with you!
- We provide personalised support to help you reach your targets.
- Beyond logging drinks, you can also track drink-free days.
- With MyDrinkaware, you can track your sleep quality, to see how it improves over time as you cut down on alcohol consumption.
- Our app allows you to log drinks by name and by type - such as wine or spirits - detailing the size of the drink, and, of course, how many you’ve had.
- You can set achievable goals for yourself and manage lifestyle changes at your own pace, to keep you motivated.
The MyDrinkaware app helps you to review your drinking patterns and to set your own goals. Most importantly, the app is always on hand, at the times and places you need it the most.
MyDrinkaware offers personalised results and takes control of all the sums, to provide simple, comparable data. With clear visual aids, you can watch your alcohol consumption reduce in the palm of your hand.
Download MyDrinkaware now - it’s time to go from thinking about cutting back, to enjoying life while drinking less.
Bug fix - self assessment reminder message appearing after assessment is skipped then taken.
Minor issue resolved relating to some iPhone 11 pro users attempting to reset passwords and the app crashes.
Ratings and Reviews
Have been using for a few weeks now. It’s alright, it works. But too many taps. Recording a common drink should be a single tap on the homepage to add a single drink to today. Instead it’s tap “record drink” tap the drink - if it’s one on the random shortlist, otherwise type it in to the search bar…! - tap how many, tap save. Too many taps, makes it very clunky when it’s something you want to do every day.
UPDATE Developer picked up on my review below. Not sure whether it was something they did or it has just resolved with the patience they asked for, but my data is now all back. Still a few niggles (log in every time) buy largely happy and I’m back tracking.
Of course we all have auto-update on so no use giving the only constructive advice which would be to stick with the old version. I’m probably going to consider legal action under GDPR to ensure I get back all my personal data the developers still have stored on a server somewhere but which is inaccessible via the app. So unfortunately two other actions now: 1, download an alternative app; 2, go and have a pint to get over the stress. (Not sure the developers intended either outcome, but there you go.)

Even worse than before
This app had its limitation before in the list of drinks available but unspecified brands were available to customise, UI design wasn’t the best but was informative and colour and verbal messaging around the governments ridiculous 14 units a week meant that anything above this and 50 units was lumped in as increasing risk which seems like far too big a range to me. That all said it was pretty decent for tracking drinks and keeping an eye on daily, weekly and monthly levels and comparing to how previous levels. The latest version of the app has removed almost all the useful parts. No way to see all historic data as far as I can see, I can only scroll back a month in a slow and clunky graph timeline. No way to really compare weekly and monthly data yourself anymore. Tracking drinks is so slow now and you can’t add multiple drinks of different types easily as you are returned to a menu screen every time after a slow loading screen. In general the app feels slow now and has been designed with form in mind over function.
Developer Response ,
Thank you very much for your feedback. We’re sorry to hear you don’t like our new app as much as the old one. We appreciate that there are lots of changes to get used to. We’ve worked hard with users during development to focus on the user experience and made these changes to improve the app and of course, to introduce new features. We really value your feedback and we actively want to hear more about your thoughts as this will help us make the MyDrinkaware app better. We're listening and constantly improving with every release to make sure we are incorporating your comments.

Sort of helpful, but fairly flawed
I’ve been using this for over a year now, and have a rough idea of my alcohol consumption. The design builds in various unnecessary limitations though, which mean it’s not as accurate as it could be.
Things I’d like to know are units consumed and amount spent. It would be simple if there was a way of inputting type of drink, quantity, percentage and price for each drink you have. Instead, you can choose from a default list (which almost always means the price is wrong), or you can choose from an incredibly limited list of brands.
As the beers I drink are rarely on the list (not a brag, there are just very few beers listed!), you always have to choose something with the same or similar percentage. Sometimes this means the percentage is way off, which kind of renders the app pointless. Hence, as I said, I have a rough idea of my intake.
Not sure the reason for this manner of input. One reviewer suggested that they were selling the data to the brands listed - but if so, this is next to useless for those companies, given that there are several beers in there I would show up as drinking regularly that I’ve never actually touched.
I’ve always carried on using the app because it’s the best of a bad bunch and have always assumed its obvious flaw would be fixed. Although, given that it’s not even formatted for the iPhone 6 screen size yet, perhaps this is a little optimistic.
