The Top 10 Stop Drinking Apps

This list of the Top 10 Stop Drinking Apps is based on the number of Google Play Ratings/Reviews and Installs, because number of Installs is not listed on Apple’s App Store. If you search for “Stop Drinking Apps” on Google Play the algorithm will determine which are listed without ordering by  ratings/reviews or Installs. If you search on google for “best” lists you will also find reviews which also do not rank by number of ratings/reviews or installs, and some are professionally written advertising for apps. This list is ranked as objectively as possible based on publicly available information from Google Play with links, descriptions and screenshots to confirm data at time of publication and additional information.

Stop Drinking Apps may contain meeting locators, positive reinforcement, Social networking, coping skills and sobriety counters / calculators. Please note The Addiction Help Agency does not endorse the use of any Sobriety counters / calculators which may be detrimental to permanent cessation as described in “Holmes’s Complete Guide To Stop Drinking Alcohol.”
