Really helps bring visibility and peace of mind
I admit I’m a worrier. I tend to overthink things. Meaning that I can get paranoid about how healthy or unhealthy I perceive my habits to be. I enjoy drinking but I find it easy to feel like I’m overdoing it either in how many days a week I drink or with how many drinks I have in a social outing (whether it is real or perceived is a different topic). This app has been very helpful in bringing some stability to my own perceptions of that. It is easy to just pop into the app and tally a drink as I go, or the next day if I got too busy chatting to stop and enter. The weekly tally is great because I can see how many drinks I’ve had and I can see the upcoming day when the tally will go down so that I don’t feel pressure for drinking again until the running tally drops lower. Overall, it is easy to use and I’ve consistently recorded all my drinks for the past 6 months. I’m less stressed and can easily see when I feel like I need to dial down a bit, or when it is ok to let loose and have some more fun. For me, it takes the worry away and that has been great.
It’s a very good app
With drinks that have different alcohol content it’s very hard to be sure how much you actually drank over just a few days. Tracking over a month? Several months? A year? It’s impossible. I have that data now and it’s useful. It’s a great way for me to be accountable but also let myself relax when I’m within my limits.
Very responsive developer too which is great. Thank you. I should share that I added in a custom drink called “water” to indicate for myself that I tracked my drinks that night and I had zero. It might be a helpful drink to add by default simply as a placeholder. That way I know later that I was being honest! And then I get it on the infograph as well. I can check how many days I skipped drinking over a time period by checking how many times I marked down “water” for my drinks.
Very useful. Thank you
Take control of your drinking!
I started using this app five years ago because I was concerned that my drinking might be going over the limits of moderation. I enjoy alcohol and never want it to become a problem because I’d hate to have to give it up! It does take a lot of self-discipline to log each and every drink but if you’re serious about it, you get used to it pretty quickly. It’s really great data! I helps me make more conscious decisions about my drinking and has even gradually reduced my drinking over time, lowering my tolerance so that a drink or two is enough anyway. I’m sure it’s saved me a ton of money too. When my doctor asks how many drinks I have a week, I can show him! It’s so customizable as well. Highly recommended!
