It’s no good. I have been using apps to track my drinking for years in the vain hope of ‘cutting down’ or moderating. I guess as I have decided to be completely abstinent it makes no sense to have them any more. They are just another reminder.
Alcodroid is brilliant.
“AlcoDroid is an alcohol consumption tracker, drinks diary and blood alcohol content calculator. AlcoDroid helps you get a better handle of what you drink and change your drinking habits. Optionally it also tracks costs of your drinks. AlcoDroid also provides an estimate of your blood alcohol content (BAC) based on the drinks you’ve logged, plots your BAC development in a chart and indicates when you get below the legal limit or back to sobriety.”
It’s really configurable and you can export to Excel etc. When I moved from Android to an iPhone (work choice, not mine) I really struggled to find a decent one. The closest I got to was…
Drinktrack is simple but effective.
“Drinktrack is a quick and simple app to record when and what you’re drinking. It’s designed to be quick to use in the pub, and the dark interface doesn’t attract attention. We don’t believe a drinks tracker needs to be ugly. The logbook gives you this week’s totals and your average per week for the past four weeks. Armed with this data, it’s easy to track how much you’re drinking, decide whether it’s the right amount and stick to any targets you set.”
I like the simplicity but it’s not configurable and there is no export function. So you have to transfer daily totals into Excel.
I actually have one with pivot tables and stuff to pretty the results up. If you want a copy let me know, although I may delete it as the past is done with. I am on a new road now. Total abstinence.
Note: Figure are for illustration only….I massively undercounted which is one problem with these, you get drunk and forget to log stuff.
Anyway. Apps uninstalled.
