Publisher's Summary

In her memoir, Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget, Sarah Hepola examines how she drank, why she drank, how others responded to her, and the misfortunes that occurred during her journey to sobriety.

Sarah grew up in Dallas, Texas, and was brought up in a household of modest chaos. Sarah's mother was the center of her small universe, but eventually decided to go back to school and become a therapist. Fights between Sarah's parents were regular and unpleasant. Her older brother, Josh, was brilliant, creating academic expectations for Sarah that she could never quite meet.

Sarah began drinking small amounts of beer at the age of six, getting drunk for the first time at 12. Sarah loved the freedom and confidence that alcohol gave her. In high school, Sarah's habits finally matched those of her peers, where accessing and consuming alcohol became a normal way to spend time....
