This page will tell you everything that you need to know about the clocks in Nomo!
For whatever reason, you may want to delete a clock. Here's how:
Note: If you're sharing your clock with any accountability partners, they will not be notified that the clock has been deleted. It's a good idea to let them know and explain why you're deleting it.
Unfortunately, relapsing is a part of the recovery process. If you do relapse, don't be discouraged! All you need to do is reset your clock and get back on track. Here's how:
Note: If you have any followers, they'll be notified that you reset your clock. Also, you won't lose any chips that you've already earned.
If you created a clock and realized that you accidentally set the wrong date, the best thing to do is delete your clock and create it again with the correct date. The big question now is, "Why can't I just edit the date?" There are two reasons:
So, with all of that said, the best thing to do is delete your clock and create it again. Luckily, creating a clock takes less than a minute and you can be on your way.
Every clock has a button called, "Check in". When you tap that button, it saves a timestamp on your clock that shows when you last checked in. People use it for two reasons:
Note: If you check in with a clock that's being shared, all of your followers for that clock will be sent a notification to let them know that you checked in.
If you're feeling tempted to act out, the best thing you can do is talk with someone. In recovery, we call this, "Making the call". In normal support groups, you'll have a small sheet of paper with everyone's phone numbers on it. Unfortunately, you have to call them one-by-one and hope that they didn't change their phone number
With the SOS (Send out Signal) button, you don't have to worry about that. As long as you have accountability partners following your clock, the SOS feature will send out a notification to them, letting them know that you're struggling and need to talk. Then you just need wait. You have the option to add your phone number, but you can leave that blank if you just want to be messaged through Nomo. Here's how to send an SOS:
Note: All of your followers for that clock will be notified if they have notifications enabled.
In the past few years, I've received a handful of email asking about the accuracy of the clocks. The main concern is that, if you count the days, it doesn't always match what the clock says. I wanted to take a minute and help explain the math and why Nomo is accurate down to the minute. Before I do that, there are a few things that you have to keep in mind:
With all of that said, let's look at some common questions that come along with the way Nomo calculates our sobriety time:
Why is my clock off by a day? Since Nomo is calculating your sobriety time down to the minute, the number of days that you're seeing is the number of full days that you've been sober. For example, if you started your sobriety on January 1st at 8:45am, your clock would show 0 Days until January 2nd at 8:45am. So, when you see your clock and it's a day off, it's because you haven't reached the time of day of which your clock is set. Some people will set their sobriety time to 12:00am so that their day count will switch over at the very beginning of each day.
Why is my chip wrong? In Nomo, as well as many recovery programs, chips are earned for various lengths of sobriety. This can get confusing when you begin earning your monthly chips. There are two ways to calculate monthly chips:
Both ways work, but for Nomo, I decided to go with the second option because it causes less confusion. For example, when using the first option: If your sobriety date was January 1st, you would receive your 1 Month Chip on January 31st. Most people would expect to receive it on February 1st. Since not every month has the same number of days, it becomes even more confusing when you get to your 2nd Month Chip because it would land on March 2nd (completely skipping February, which can have up to 29 days).
With that said, receiving your next chip on the same day each month becomes much less confusing. To further support the second option, you celebrate your birthday on the same date each year. However, it's not always 365 days from your previous birthday. Every four years, we have 366 days. That offset in days doesn't change when you celebrate your birthday. The same is true for chips. Some months are longer than others, but we still celebrate it on the same date each month.
Why 0 days sober? If you just created a clock and set your sobriety date for today, it will say that you are 0 Days sober. Since Nomo is calculating your sobriety down to the minute, 0 Days is accurate. When you tap on the Tap for more details button, you'll see how many hours and minutes you've been sober.
For example: If you started your sobriety on January 1st at 2:30pm, by 4:30pm on the same day, you'd be 2 hours sober. You are working on your first day, but you wouldn't be 1 day sober until the next day. Sobriety time is something that we earn. If you're saving up $100, but only have $10, it wouldn't be correct to say that you have $100. It would be correct to say that you're working to save $100.
I'm very proud to say that Nomo is the most accurate sobriety clock in the AppStore. Anyone can do simple math to give you the total number of days, total number of hours, or total number of minutes, but Nomo is the only one that gives you an accurate breakdown in years, months, weeks, days, hours, and minutes. If you have any concerns I recommend crosschecking the math with this very reliable website: https://www.timeanddate.com/date/timeduration.html
