Lower My Drinking app launched across Cheshire and Merseyside

Posted on February 1st, 2022

Feeling blue? Feel better, sleep better, save money – try the Lower My Drinking App.

During the COVID-19 pandemic harmful drinking has risen significantly, which has an impact on people, communities, and services. The Lower My Drinking app is free to download and use for anyone who lives or works in Cheshire and Merseyside (access is by postcode). It has been designed by clinical psychologists and behavioural scientists: the platform gives advice and uses scientifically-proven tools to reduce drinking to the recommended limit of 14 units a week or less.

Using the app, you can set a drinking goal and work towards it by:

  • Tracking progress towards an individual drinking goal
  • Recognising all the gains to be made by cutting down
  • Focusing on what is really motivating to reduce drinking
  • Sees how your drinking compares to the rest of the population

As well as this, Lower My Drinking shows the issues that could potentially cause someone to drink more than is healthy for them and gives a set of proven skills that can be used to address these.
