Celebrating the new year? There’s an app that will indicate if you are impaired.

It’s that time of year when we celebrate the hope of the coming year..some of us will celebrate too much and may need help to encourage the use of alternate ways to get home rather than drive. intoxicheck is a new iPhone app that helps you  realize how easy it is to become impaired. The app uses a series of tests to help determine how delayed your reactions might be, for example. It’s not guaranteed to tell you how drunk you are, or to make it okay for you to drive after drinking (because you should never drive while impaired), but it can teach you a little something about alcohol affects you.

The intoxicheck iPhone app can help.  intoxicheck is designed to help you realize how buzzed you might really be.  You don’t need to count your drinks, or guess at how much alcohol is in the drinks you’ve consumed.  intoxicheck works by comparing results from a series of challenges that you take while sober to results you get from taking the same challenges after you’ve had a few. Many people who drink underestimate their actual impairment level. The results intoxicheck gives you may prove invaluable in helping you make better choices based on your real impairment level.


intoxicheck available at the App Store for $0.99 is a way to at least give yourself a wake-up call as to just how much alcohol affects you – that is, assuming that you’re not so drunk that you can’t operate your phone. A “passing grade” is by no means a green light  to get behind the wheel of a car. Remember IT IS NEVER SAFE TO DRINK AND DRIVE and there is no shame in calling a cab, drive home service or using public transit to get home.
