You’re joining a community of members who have been through exactly what you’re going through, and have achieved amazing results. Here’s what some of them have said about using Sunnyside to cut back on their journey to be more mindful drinkers and get the most out of Dry January.
When I first started I was a bit leery about the whole thing. I am 70 years old and retired and didn’t think that I needed someone to tell me how much to drink. So I took the 15 day free trial and found out that it really helped me control my drinking. These guys are not trying to change you, just your drinking habits, which has help me a lot. Sometimes I would drink just to drink and that came to a stop. I still do what I want to do, I'm just doing it differently and it really working well for me. - Rene
Over the last two years I became a bit of a heavy drinker. After 84 days with Sunnyside, I'm now a moderate drinker, on my way to becoming a social drinking. The transition was easier than I thought. -Ted
I've been trying to cut back on my drinking for years and this is the only way I've actually done it. I'm so extremely happy with just the mindfulness that it has provided me. It's not judgy. It doesn't make you quit immediately. It is just a way to cut back and be mindful of your drinking and I really appreciate it. It's honestly transformed my life. -Stefani
I love this program - it’s simple and supportive. I feel like I’m on my way to making some lasting changes without ever feeling shamed. Also the coaches are real & respond personally (not just bots). -Lucy
