How I Stopped Thinking About Drinking (and not drinking) and Started Loving My Life.
In Wholly Sober, you will join me on a fast track account of my life with alcohol. Starting with my first hangover at just five years old. I share some of the most heartbreaking and darkest times of my life and move onto challenging common held beliefs and theories around drinking challenges.
The book is divided into three parts:
The Storm – All the perfect makings of a broken individual needing to escape. Fog – Knowing something needs to change, but cannot fathom how even to start. Pink Clouds – HOPE (Having Other Possibilities to Explore) and so much more.
Against the odds, I didn’t struggle with sobriety but learned to understand and live sober differently. I call it Wholly Sober–focusing on life, not alcohol.
Not everyone who struggles with alcohol is alcoholic, and there’s more than one way to live sober.
