Your painless guide to learning to drink better.

Thanks to the rise of Dry January and the sober-curious movement, more guys are re-thinking their relationship to drinking. In the process, they’re sleeping better, losing weight, and keeping more cash in their wallets. 

Also, for many guys, the pandemic put a spotlight on their drinking habits (according to researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital, excessive drinking increased 21 percent during the pandemic). Whether you're curious about what life would be like if you drank less, or wondering if your drinking levels could be healthier, Men's Health MVP can help you get a good balance. 

Our latest PDF guide gives you the knowledge and the tools to make better drinking decisions without having to give up alcohol altogether—unless you want to. “Abstinence is the right decision for some, but a lot more people are simply looking for ways to become healthier, more mindful drinkers,” says Nick Allen, co-founder of Sunnyside, a subscription-based service that helps people drink less.

So what’s the right knowledge and what are the right tools? We’ve got you there: Our experts take you through a 4-week plan to help you cut back on alcohol and get more out of life. Here’s exactly what to do every week in order to drink better, drink smarter, and drink less—or not drink at all, if that’s what you’re aiming for. 

You don't even have to start out by drinking less; the first step in the plan is to get a holistic picture of how much you're drinking to begin with. 

Over the course of this 4-week challenge, you’ll learn:

  • What's making you drink more than you mean to and how to get motivated to drink less.
  • What to drink that's not alcohol that leaves you socially and physically satisfied. 
  • How to manage your social life when you're not drinking right now. 
  • How and where to find extra help and support if you need it.

It’s important to realize that the use of the word “challenge” with this PDF isn't designed to add even more pressure or guilt on you during your journey to drinking less. It's just a way to make this 4-week process feel more like a game or a training plan that gets you the rewards you want. Don't sweat it.
