CUTTING DOWN WITH THE HELP OF THE DRINKCOACH APP
Our free app is an easy way to keep an eye on your drinking and has loads of brilliant features.
Monitor your alcohol unit consumption, calorie intake and spending to build up a picture of how much you’re drinking over time.
You’ll see a month at a glance, giving you a clear idea of when you’re meeting and exceeding your goals. You can also share your progress over social media or email for encouragement from your friends.
You can also change your settings to track your costs in £, € or $.
Record messages from your “sober-self” to keep you on track, including time- and location-based reminders like “remember your goal to keep it to two pints max at after-work drinks tonight”, set to go off at 5pm on Fridays or whenever you find yourself at your local.
Set and share goals to help you stay on track – you can set a target for a day, a week, or a month which can be either unit, calorie or spending based (e.g. drinking less than 1000 calories in a week, drinking less than £20 in a weekend, or staying dry for January).
You can share your goals over social media or email and your goals are displayed in your drink tracker, along with a reminder when the goal period finished and whether you achieved your goal or not.
Manage your cravings and feel calmer with our short mindfulness videos. Our videos are narrated by a mindfulness expert who will take you through mindfulness techniques, breathing exercises and urge surfing.
How the app works with our DrinkCoach sessions
If you’re working with a DrinkCoach via our online coaching sessions, you’ll be tasked with keeping a drink diary to help track your progress. The free DrinkCoach app is a convenient way to do that. Just download it to your smartphone and you’re ready to record. No pens and paper needed. You can also share your diary with your DrinkCoach via email.
