How to calculate how long you have been sober?
This online sobriety calculator makes it easy to calculate how long you have been sober. All you need to enter is the date of sobriety and click "Calculate age". The result will show you the number of full years, months, weeks, and days you have been sober according to the calendar. In a sense, this tool can also be used as a sober day counter.
If you are asking yourself "How long have I been sober?" and want to arrive at the answer by hand, you need to take into account leap years (366 instead of 365 days, February gets an extra day), so it can be tedious task if your sobriety date is far into the past (great job in staying sober!).
If you need to know your sobriety time by the hour, minute or second, you can use our time duration calculator, assuming you know the exact time.
The number of "Sober Heartbeats" reported by the sobriety calculator is an estimate based on an average of 100,800 heartbeats per day.
What is your sobriety date?
Some people hesitate on whether to use the last day they drank on as a starting date, or the first full day in which they did not drink. Most people prefer the latter, as usually the former is linked to an event which actually moved the needle enough for them to quit drinking.
Knowing your sobriety date can help you remember when your life began to change for the better in contrast to what it was before. Therefore, we believe that your sobriety date should be first full day of your new life without addiction, but which date is most special for you in terms of your sobriety is a personal thing, so the choice is ultimately yours.
If you are looking to get sober or are having trouble staying sober after experiencing issues with alcohol, you might consider going to a local support group or a therapist with experience in treating addiction.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an organization that operates in dozens of countries across the world and has been offering its services for many decades.
