How it helps

The app aims to help by:

  • Helping you track your drinking
  • Connect with a community of peers to support you, and learn from the experience of others
  • Learn about the personal triggers that can cause you to turn to drinking
  • Practice activities that work to help you achieve your goals, and save the ones that work for you.

Based on a study of 793 users at Curtin University:

  • The 70 per cent of study participants classed as “probably dependent” more than halved their alcohol consumption while using Daybreak, from 40.8 standard drinks a week to 20.1 standard drinks.
  • Alcohol consumption among “risky/harmful” drinkers dropped from 22.9 standard drinks a week to 11.9 standard drinks, which is below the National Health and Medical Research Council guidelines that recommend no more than 14 drinks a week.
