How to Calculate Your Sobriety Duration?
Your sobriety duration means the number of days you have been sober, i.e., you haven't had any alcohol to drink or taken any drugs.
To calculate your sobriety duration, you need to count the number of days, months, and years between the date you last had a drink/took drugs and today. Use the Sobriety Calculator to out your days sober quickly, automatically, and accurately.
It's important to calculate your sobriety duration using the last date you drank alcohol, not the date you decided to stop drinking.
For example, if you decided to stop drinking on July 30, 2023, but had a drink on August 1, 2023, your sobriety date is now August 1, not July 30.
Is Your Sobriety Date Important?
Yes, your sobriety date is very important when you choose to become sober.
Firstly, knowing and keeping track of your sobriety date makes it easier to work out how many days you have been sober.
Secondly, for people who choose to become sober, it is a huge milestone in their lives and something they do for personal reasons.
Therefore, knowing your sobriety date represents the start of your recovery journey and is an important date to celebrate weekly, monthly, and annually.
How Many Days Have I Been Sober?

Even though the number of days in each month varies (with some having 28, 29, 30, or 31, depending on the year), a month sober generally means 30 days of sobriety.
