A year ago we highlighted the Saying When app, a neat addition to your cell phone or other electronic device, to help you create goals around reduced drinking. We weren’t the only ones to expose its virtues. It was also covered in the Toronto Sun, and elsewhere. Well, we have news. There’s an updated version of the app on iTunes – version 1.1 – revised and retooled to make it even better.
And now, it’s FREE !
To remind you, it’s a program from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health [CAMH], designed to help you track your consumption, set goals, and manage limits – hopefully trying to get down to Canada’s Low Risk Drinking Guidelines – guidelines built to minimize risk from alcohol as it relates to diseases like cancer and heart disease.
But hey, now there’s a whole whack of apps out there related to alcohol and consumption that do some amazing things. A sampling:
- Drinking Mirror App – see how bad you look from all that booze
- Drinks Meter – compare your drinking not to a formula, but to an entire community of drinkers and the group’s social and biological averages
- Check Your Drinking 3.0 – a web-based survey and report generator comparing your drinking to national averages of persons in your demographic
