This is a great book for anyone who is considering eliminating drinking alcohol from her life. The book is comprised of two parts: the first presents clear and compelling reasons why being alcohol free (AF) is not only possible but desirable. For anyone who wonders if she has a drinking problem, the idea of stopping drinking is terrifying. This book addresses the positives of being AF. The second part of the book is a series of case studies providing the reader with many examples of women whose stories will resonate and inspire."The Sober Revolution" inspired me to become AF and I am incredibly thankful to have found this book!
Amazing book. I wasn't intending stopping drinking but by about half way through I realised I didn't want to drink again. 6 weeks later and I'm still going strong.
I discovered this author from her website [...] I literally felt like she was reading my mind when I read her book. I also was a big wine drinker who has embarked on an alcohol-free life. Her thoughts and suggestions on the topic are going to be life saving. So glad I bought the book as I know I will be referring to it for guidance thruout my journey.
This book makes getting through the first 6 weeks easier. The daily journal prompts and thoughtful essays by the authors, who have clearly followed this path and succeeded, are a help at that difficult wine o'clock time each evening. I was sorry when the last page was complete and bought a journal to continue writing daily. Best early recovery tool out there!
Really great read, realistic and practical and specifically addresses all types of female drinkers so I found several of the profiles very relevant to me. Fingers crossed I manage to dump Mr Unsuitable (alcohol) for good now! Highly recommended wherever you are on your alcohol journey....
Get this book if you're thinking about giving alcohol the heave ho. Well written with good advice so that you can do this thing properly. I liked the stories at all the women and their honesty. It's a quick read so well worth it.
A fantastic book. A great eye opener and support for those looking to give up the drink. Well worth a read
I read this because I first read "Staying Sober" by Binki Laidler and she is also affiliated with the Soberistas.com site and thought this book would be as consuming. It was pretty good but not nearly as interesting as Ms. Laidler's book. The book opens with one of the founder's story and then morphs into some repetition of why being sober is so awesome (which it is). There is just a fair amount of repeated statements throughout the book. Then there are case studies of various women and their personal stories. Finally, the book winds down with the other founder's story. Overall, the book is okay but not necessarily required reading on the "addiction memoir" scene. If you read the other book mentioned above you will glean the same info in a more compelling fashion and for about $8 less.
