NIHR SPHR’s Alcohol programme researchers at University College London (UCL) have developed a brand new app that aims to help people get healthier and save money by drinking less alcohol.
The app, Drink Less, uses the latest thinking about behaviour change and the techniques it contains are based on robust scientific evidence.
You can set goals, track progress, complete a mood diary to help you understand the effects of your hangover, play games designed to strengthen your resolve, create plans for dealing with social situations like parties, and train your brain to react differently to alcohol.
It’s an attractive and very user-friendly app that’s entirely free to use. It’s also part of an experiment designed to allow researchers to understand what helps people drink less. So downloading will not only allow you to improve your health, it will also help many more people do the same.
