The Scottish government has launched a campaign to encourage people to drink less in 2013.  Part of the campaign is an App where you can load a picture of yourself and see how your drinking will age you over 10 years.  I did it and the results were dire. I am glad I stopped drinking or I would look a lot older than I do now.   The campaign is called Drink Smarter.

You can launch the web based version of the app here

Alcohol's aging effect

Alcohol’s aging effect

Wow, this is a really great app. It’s true that drinking does age a person, but this is a great way to show people exactly what they’re doing to themselves! For a lot of people, I can imagine that this will motivate themselves to really change their lives for the better. Especially for women, as we’ve got so much riding on our looks! I can definitely think of a few people that I’m going to forward this to.

OMG… I just tried out the drinking mirror and all I’m going to say is that it’s definitely not a pretty sight. I can’t say that I was ever really an alcoholic (I know that’s what everyone says, but I haven’t been at it long, just a few party years), but this has definitely made me stop and consider the habits that I’m building in my life, and whether or not I want to continue down this road… I don’t think I do!
