I’m Done Drinking Counter

This was an app that Sharon mentioned in a comments discussion on her blog.  As soon as I read it I went scuttling off to the iTunes store looking for it and you can find it here.

The designer says that it was inspired by their ‘I’m Done Smoking’ App and this app was requested by many to track how many days and how much money you can save by not drinking.  And that’s what it does!

You programme in your quit date, how many drinks you drank per day, what was your choice of poison and the cost per drink was and it does the rest 🙂

It shows your quit date and time in days, hours and minutes since your last drink.

It shows the number of drinks not consumed in number of drinks, bottles/packs and cases.

It shows the calories saved (calculated using 125 calories for a 5oz serving of wine for me) and $$ cash saved.

A nice touch on the ‘About’ page is that the designer says ‘I started this app with the idea of just saying I’m Done and use it as daily motivation to prove that if I could stop drinking I could do anything, even create an iPhone app’ 🙂

I have it downloaded on my iPad and it cost $0.99

At the time of writing this post I was at 171 days since my last drink, had not consumed 686 alcoholic drinks, had saved a whopping 82,372 calories and £1024 in cash (x 2 as Mr HOF has also stopped) therefore meaning a combined total of £2048!!  It’s a great motivator 😉

Edited to add: the app has now been updated with a range of drinks from beer to spirits to wine to cocktails to chose from.
