How to Calculate How Long You Have Been Sober?
Our 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”. 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 – we are so proud of you!
If you are asking yourself “How long have I been sober?” and want to arrive at the answer by hand, you might 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!).
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.
