Présentation de l'éditeur

Worry you drink too much? Can't help yourself? Can't bear to give up? Alcohol is a normal part of life, isn't it? It is usual for thirty-somethings to collapse in the evening with a glass or two of something sophisticated to diffuse the stress of the day and calm their buzzing brains, whether they be professionals, mothers, wives or homemakers. Rachel was no different. She juggled her many roles and responsibilities well and rewarded herself with wine at the end of each day; after all, she deserved it. But, gradually her wine intake began to increase each night and soon it had gone from being a little treat to an absolute necessity. As wine invaded more and more areas of her life, it became harder to cope. In turn it meant she drank more wine, firmly believing it was the cure, never considering for a moment that it could be the problem.
Eventually, when wine was dictating everything she did and did not do, Rachel realised her life was unmanageable and that something had to change. However, as soon as she attempted to restrict or moderate her drinking, she seemed to want it even more. Her best intentions fell quickly by the way side after the first bottle was opened and the first drink took control, compelling her to have more. Drinking would continue until there was none left or Rachel 'fell asleep'.
The following day consisted of a hangover, depression, overeating, remorse, worry, despair and self-hatred, until the time came around when the next bottle could be opened and these awful feelings could be blotted out. This pattern of trying and failing to control her wine drinking brought Rachel to acknowledge that it was not possible to do so, and she decided that she had to remove alcohol from her life forever. Despite being sick and tired of the drinking-hangover-drinking cycle of failure, giving up was not easy and it was only after a few more failed attempts that Rachel managed to do so.
This book details her life in that first year of going alcohol-free. It describes in detail how her everyday pursuits became challenging and changing. Her outlook on the whole point of life turned on its axis when alcohol was removed, leaving her with a whole different sense of self and being. The changes that occurred were astounding and beyond anything she believed could be possible. She thought that removing alcohol from her life was all about giving up; she had never considered what she might gain.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SENSATIONAL, MUST READ!! 16 mars 2014
Par Phil Brown - Publié sur
I read your book in a day and was astounded by Rachel's bravery, and honest account of her life with alcohol. HER STORY IS MY STORY. So many times I was nodding my head saying "yep, that's me, my behaviours and my thoughts". I have had to face up to the fact that I don't drink alcohol like the rest of my friends do, and that has taken me a couple of years to admit and numerous attempts to modify my behaviour. If you think you're the only one going through what you're going through, thinking what you're thinking,'re wrong.
I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. Cheers (pun intended).

This book was MY story. It felt like all of my thoughts put onto paper. Reading this made me feel "normal", whatever that is. ;)
Since I am new at this sobriety thing (3 weeks), this is my new Bible of sorts. I am very thankful for this book.

An open and honest account of a person struggling to become free of alcoholism. I quit a few months ago, but I found her book very encouraging.

I am in the struggle with good angel vs temptation angel on my shoulder. Rachel's story is an honest account of how she hit her rock bottom not as someone stereotyped as an alcoholic but as an average woman realizing I can't do this anymore. No drastic arguments with family and friends she just knew it was time to say goodbye to the suffering that alcohol inflicts on those of us that can't say no to that second drink. I've truly benefitted from reading Rachel's journey to life without her best friend alcohol.
