Looking for ways to stay sober on the go? I have put together a list of mobile apps that you can use on the go through your journey through sobriety.
Sober Grid is a location based app. It finds other users in your area who are also on their journey through sobriety. It allows you to connect with others in various ways. It allows you to flag yourself as either being tempted and need someone to talk to, or flag yourself as someone who can talk to others to help them through their temptations. I have used this app and since its relatively new, there weren’t many people in my area just yet. But, I think with time this will become a great app.
This is another 12 Step geared app. I like this one because it allows you to set challenges for yourself, it counts how many days you have been sober, and much more. The biggest draw for this app is that it allows you to send a blast customized text message to 3 of your friends you have selected to let them know you may need help and are tempted to drink.
Tecarta Bible is by far one of the best apps I have used throughout my sobriety. The main draw to me was being able to add notes and save scriptures. But, the most impressive part of this app is the library of different resources you can download including study bibles, different translations of the Bible, devotionals, and more including the Life Recovery Bible that puts the Bible into terms and situations that an addict or someone in recovery can relate to.
