Fancy giving your liver a rest and having three days dry?
Spruce is a service that helps people drink less frequently by supporting them to take three days dry a week.
It's much simpler than recording units and helps you understand your drinking behaviour.

Research supported by the British Liver Trust shows that not drinking for 2-3 consecutive days each week helps the liver to recover.
Through Spruce, we are trying to spread this message and help you to achieve better liver health.
Spruce is part of a wider project where we will analyse your anonymised data to see how drinking behaviours can be influenced by using behavioural change techniques.
Registration is simple, your data will be held securely and you will be able to delete it at any time. Taking part in the research means we develop the right features for the next update and can grow to help many more concerned drinkers.

Use Spruce to plan your dry days and monitor how many days a week you drink - it's easy!
You'll get notifications to help you stay on track, tips for when you’re gazing longingly at that empty wine glass and a monthly overview to see how you've been doing.

Poor editing feature

Simple and motivating
I've been using this app for a few weeks and I find it really helpful, even if one week I didn't manage 3 days in a row. It's simplicity itself and I like getting the daily reminder to log yesterday's drinking (or not). Where it falls short is that you can't go back and change what you recorded. I had a day where I drank on a non-drinking day, accidentally hit the not-drinking option then had no way to amend it.
I had read about this app in a well known beauty magazine. Had big hopes for this app as it monitors your drinking habits and encourages you to choose 3 alcohol free days or more if you can abstain. You get daily alerts to note whether you had a drink. Unfortunately you get to Sunday and the previous week has disappeared! If you were really good on the Saturday you can't state it. Sent feedback to Spruce about this...no reply. Will delete now.
