Reducing the amount of alcohol you drink will lower your risk of developing seven different types of cancer, including cancers in the breast, bowel, mouth, throat and liver. The more alcohol you drink, the greater your risk of alcohol-related cancers.

Cancer Council recommends people drink less alcohol to reduce their risk of cancer. For people who do drink alcohol, we recommend following the National Health and Medical Research Council guidelines which suggest healthy men and women should drink no more than 10 standard drinks a week and no more than 4 standard drinks on any one day.

Drinks Meter is a user-friendly app for your phone or tablet that provides confidential, personalised feedback about your alcohol use based on advice from doctors and the Australian guidelines to reduce health related risks from alcohol.

The Drinks Meter app is packed with unique features to help you monitor and reduce how much you are drinking. Drink Meter is:

  • Free to download
  • Allows you to easily enter alcoholic drinks you have had in the past 7 days
  • Adds up your weekly spend on alcohol
  • Shows what you’ve been drinking in equivalent standard drinks
  • Shows what the kilojoules/calories you’ve consumed in alcoholic drinks and shows the equivalent to foods like cheeseburgers or chocolate bars
  • Shows you how your drinking compares with national alcohol guidelines and other users of Drinks Meter
  • Personalises your feedback adjusted to risk factors based on family and medical history (e.g. BMI, prescription medication, mental illness and addiction)
