Steer clear of people who are negative or put you down."
These words by the author apply not to just someone who is trying to regain control of his/her life due to having a drinking problem, but to anyone who may be feeling down on themself and as a result may find comfort in drinking.
As many other reviews state, I also wish to echo the sentiment of how difficult it is for anyone to admit they have a drinking problem, and commend the author for taking a different spin on how she stopped letting alcohol ruin her life. While a lot of the content is personal experience, she also provides some suggestions for how to get on the road to losing the drinking habit. Her stories from childhood and even the ones she shares about her drinking in adulthood make what she is trying to convey real, especially for those who can relate to allocating more money for alcohol than food, as her father did when she was growing up.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who may be looking to make a change in their life to give up drinking or even for someone who thinks a friend or loved one may have a drinking problem. There is life beyond the bottle, and the author is living proof of that.
There was a part in the book where the author talked about the effects being hungover creates by spending money on alcohol and then having to spend money on eating junkfood since she couldn't cook, increasing her overall costs in general (I can relate to that because I have done that plenty of times and felt like crap mentally and physically) especially if this is a regular thing. There were a lot of eye-openers inside and it really has helped me with controlling my drinking to just a couple drinks at most. I would recommend this book to anyone that drinks.
