10 Best Apps for Recovering Alcoholics

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), 18 million Americans suffer from an alcohol use disorder. Whether you’re dealing with less serious alcohol abuse or more troubling alcohol dependence (aka alcoholism), you’re probably drinking more than you or your network would like. You might be experiencing cravings, a loss of control, an increase in tolerance, and horrible withdrawal symptoms

The good news is that through treatment, both alcohol abusers and alcoholics are able to remain sober for the rest of their lives. If you’re dipping your toes in temperance or are in the midst of a full-fledged alcohol treatment program, the following 10 apps will add that extra bit of encouragement to keep you on the right path.

Thank you Healthline for  recognizing Biblical Encouragement – Alcohol Addition. We hope this app continues to bring peace and aid to people suffering from an alcohol related issue.

Development Tip: What to do When a Project Gets Delayed

It’s bound to happen. Problems arise, clients change their minds, and countless other unforeseen issues can cause a project to be delayed. One important thing to remember is, resist the temptation to add more people to the project as the first option. Taking some literary advice:

“You cannot have a baby in one month by impregnating 9 women” – The Mythical Man-Month

This applies to software projects too.

In reality, sometimes adding additional people might help, but keep these points in mind before making this exception.

The newly added people should be experts at the pending task, AND/OR are going to be working on a completely independent portion of the project. The integration should be seamless with no additional contextual knowledge of the project needed.

The other practical option is – negotiate with the client and help them understand and prioritize their requirements. Drop a couple of fancy items which are “nice-to-have”, but not the “must-haves”. The client might be more accepting of a simple-yet-functional feature, instead of a half done, fancy looking feature.

Taking another cue from the “Mythical Man-Month”, here’s some advice:

“When the chef delays your omelet, you can either have him bring it out early and eat it raw, or allow him the additional time to make it cook well”.

In the end, always do a team retrospective to figure out what went wrong and caused the deliverable to be delayed.
