How to get the app

The Sobriety Counter - Stop Drinking (EasyQuit) app is focused mainly on helping you to stop drinking and then stay sober. You start by inputting details of how much you drink and how often, the financial costs associated with this and your quit date. 

You can then view your progress and benefits of your sobriety within different menus, including a tracker for time without drinking, money saved, real-time health benefits, drinks passed and medals for goals achieved.

For the complete app description, go to Google Play(external link), App Store(external link) or, for a more detailed review, see reviews below.


✔ Clear menus to help you see at a glance the benefits of maintaining your sobriety.

Tips and tools if you are at risk of relapsing.

Simple and easy to use.

A set-up menu would be helpful when first opened to allow you to input information on your drinking habits, spending and goals.  

The app defaults to the Euro currency when installed.

There is no psychological support or advice for people who are not sure about giving up drinking.

Clinical review

4.5 star review

: Dr Peter Ou, GP and Clinical Editor, Auckland Regional HealthPathways
Date of review: April 2021
Platform: Apple
Version: 1.3
Comments: This app is mainly useful for users who have issues with their drinking and are determined to stop drinking, or have already stopped drinking, and want to stay sober. The app has a 'helpful tips' menu with advice on reducing the impact of stressors and triggers associated with alcohol use and cessation. The mini game within the menu 'Beat an urge' can help to distract users from alcohol consumption. This app doesn't have psychological support or advice for people who are undecided on drinking cessation, and is therefore less useful to users who are in early stages of contemplating drinking cessation or reduction.
Safety concerns: None.
New Zealand relevance: Yes – relevant to New Zealand users. The app defaults to the Euro currency when installed; however, it can be changed to dollars, although this isn't easy to find as it is in the last menu (Settings > Quitting Data). It would be better if the app had an introduction to quick set when the user first opens it.
