Exploring technology based tools to reduce drinking is important. The purpose of this research study is to compare different BAC monitoring apps for their effects on alcohol drinking and ratings of usability among young adults.This study will be conducted in six phases: a web-based and in-person screening assessment; brief counseling session on the day before the alcohol drinking session; brief appointment on the day of the alcohol drinking session; alcohol drinking session; two-week field period; and a follow-up appointment. Participation in this study will last approximately two months.
