Through their online programme Daybreak, you can join conversations, share experiences, try out different ways to manage your drinking, and access one-to-one private health coaching sessions with a professional. By talking to other people, you will see that you're not alone in your struggles to avoid alcohol, and you can find out how other people deal with urges to drink in certain situations. 

Through using the features on the Daybreak app, many users begin to see urges to drink fall over time, and their mood and sense of wellbeing improves.
