One of one the best drinking memoir books I’ve ever listened to. And I’ve listened to a LOT.

This is a great book for light drinkers looking to give up for a month. But if you are a heavy drinker this book will be far too basic for you.

It took three hours into this book before she started talking about her alcohol problems. The reason I purchased this book. But by that time I was bored of listening to her story that I stopped. Don’t buy this book if you are wanting to hear someone’s story about alcoholism. Or if you do you can fast forward the first 2+ hours. Very misleading to say this book is about alcoholism when it takes SO long to get to the point.

Their “dream” is for you to continue taking the worst drug in the world (alcohol) but also take another pharmaceutical drug on top of this drug. So ludicrous. I was actually laughing out loud while she was stating her “dream”. What a waste of money.

Not for me

I have left a better star rating than I wanted only because this book is not for me. I’m sure loads of women will relate to this book. I just don’t because I don’t have kids and this book is about a mother with a drinking problem. I only listened to an hour and I didn’t finish it as I didn’t care for the main character (as horrible and nasty as that sounds). I prefer stories of more career orientated people with drinking problems as I relate more to those. Overall though I’m sure this book will be of great help to MANY, women and men, with drinking problems.

This book had some weird segways. And the author kept saying “you” when she was actually talking about herself. I found it weird The author said she was diagnosed as a genius. Maybe my intellect is just too low for this book. Either way I couldn’t finish it as it was just simply oddly written

Excellent book

This book explains a hell of a lot when it comes to alcohol and it’s addictive pull.
