Positive feedback

I have been using a habit tracking app on my phone to keep track of how long I haven’t been drinking. It is nice to see the counter increase each day. When I look at the home screen on my phone I can see the number of days it has been since I have binged yet again. I want to see that number increase and my desire to see it increase increases with each larger number. It is like a positive feedback loop. As long as I keep it in mind throughout the day, I am more likely to avoid temptation to drink later.
