Frequently Asked Questions
Why use a sobriety calculator?
When you can see the length of your sobriety, it gives you motivation and encouragement to keep going. It also allows you to track your progress and reflect on your sobriety journey. It’s an easy way to see how many sober days you have under your belt. You’ll be surprised to see how it all translates in years, months, hours, minutes, and seconds. It suddenly feels vaster.
What if I relapsed?
Remember that there are different types of relapse. If you experienced a major relapse episode, discuss with your sponsor and your therapist to reconsider your sobriety timeline. Learn more about the types of relapse here.
What are sober heartbeats?
This is just an approximate measure of how many heartbeats you’ve had since the day you started your sobriety.
Is it the same as the chips from Alcoholics Anonymous?
Absolutely. This is just a more visual and active way of looking at your sobriety days. Instead of looking at it as years, zooming into the minutes and seconds can easily show you the length of your recovery accomplishments. It’s a fun way to commemorate your sobriety date.
