I’m Done – Drinking Counter
Inspired by by our 'I'm Done Smoking' App, this App was requested by many to track how many days and how much money you can save by not drinking.
While building the main display I purposely left the high precision of the numbers to show that TIME is continuously moving forward.
Each time I see the display update I know I am that much better because I decided I was done.
My simple approach assumes a couple of things:
1. That you are done drinking! My app does not have a reset button or a way to add a drink. ;->
2. That you are interested in seeing the most important thing, a running total as time goes by that you are not drinking.
Changed drinks per day & price per drink to text field in settings to make it super easy to edit.
The Slider is just too sensitive.
Thanks to all that pointed this out.

Great idea, too simplistic
This is only useful if you only drink one thing! None of the cost/calories info is accurate if I can’t put how many beers I’d normally drink weekly AND how many wines/spirits. Please allow multiple drink types. Also would be great to have time saved as well.
I would like to be able to record lapses. I’ve done 28 days so far with two small lapses but I think to go back to the beginning would be so dispiriting and punitive when I’m actually doing brilliantly. So pleased with my progress. But I’d like to record any lapses because it keeps me honest and focused. Both lapses were small but made me realise how much better I feel alcohol free. A note of them in the data would remind me how I felt. Also the sliders are still way too sensitive. Impossible to set accurately. But despite it’s simple concept it really does seem to help like nothing else ever has!
I love this app for its simplicity. If I have a wobble about drinking I click on this and watch my achievements to date getting better and better. So of course I don’t have that drink because all the good would go back to zero.
