Anyone know of any decent drink trackers for the IPhone? I always have my phone with me and can't always recall the previous evening accurately. Just a thought.

Hi BamaJohn,

I've experimented on-and-off with an iPhone App called "BAC Alcohol Calculator." It allows you to select your sex and weight, and then lets you drag and drop drinks onto a timeline. It's pretty simple, it looks very sharp and you can choose from a lot of drinks. The downside I've found is that it's not very discreet - people have asked me what the hell I'm doing dragging all these colorful beverages around on my phone.

I rarely use the app these days, because counting drinks has become a pretty strong habit.

Give it a try - I'm pretty sure it's free.

Lol, and thanks. Will give it a look. Tried doing it on my fingers and toes but didn't have enough digits for weekend days.

I have never used something high-tech to keep track, largely for the reason hesster mentions... far too obvious... A trick that I used to use was to put six poker chips in my left pocket and move them to my right pocket one-by-one for every drink that I had. The idea was that I would cut myself off after six. That happened pretty seldom, but the same thing could be used to count drinks.

Hi generic

Might use some variation of that. Thanks. Tonite am using the app Hesster suggested. I will figure out something.

Although I am not sure even that I will worry that much about it. Right now I am going to, but I believe that TSM would work even if I weren't aware I was taking the pill. But I do like seeing progress in others threads.

Hey, John! Hope all is well! I just noticed this. I didn't find anything I could use, so I use the following link that works on my iPad:

http://www.cleavebooks.co.uk/scol/ccalcoh3.htm

And a spreadsheet in QuickOffice (came with my Android.) Any app that has a spreadsheet might work. There is quick office pro etc that works, too. Hope that helps!

I have an entry on my calendar called Units, that repeats every day. I just write 'em down in there. I did lose track at a party the other night, but I was just being lazy. I drink beer in cans and pop the tab off and put them in a pile (that's when I'm at home). I know a guy who lines up the stirrers from his drinks when he's at the bar, but you have to be careful the bartender doesn't "clean" them up.
I like the poker chip idea. I guess you'd want to carry more of them then you think you're going to drink, so you don't run out. That wouldn't help. I suppose you could use anything: pennies, dried beans. I think I'm going to try that next time I'm at a party. Its all about the units, although I tend to write down WHAT I drink in addition to how many (i.e. 3 bourbon, 4 beer, 2 wine).
If I had had some chips or something in my pocket, at least I would have had a more accurate count.

If you are drinking too much fat than it is very dangerous for your liver because it is a kind of drug for your body. According to my viewpoint assignment writer, you will learn information about drugs.
