Don t Drink Like My Sister

Don t Drink Like My Sister

This is my third Saint Patrick's Day that I chose not to drink. I'm so glad, too. I can't fathom getting up for work right now, cleaning up the green beer cups or liquor from last night, and trying to make it through the day.

Have you ever thought that you had an itch that only alcohol could scratch? The Sober Sisters have a suggestion. Just be itchy, b*tch.

If you’re looking to Woman Up, Level Up, and Sober Up in a completely innovative way, open this book. We’re positive you won’t regret it. Get to know the real-life OG Sober Sisters through their ups and downs from drinking as tweens in Maryland to navigating “Mommy Wine Culture” as forty-something single moms in both California and North Carolina. Sometimes we don’t hide the cracks in our double lives as well as we think. Especially in a blackout. Hang on tight for the ride of your life. And always remember...keep it simple today.

Started thirteen years ago, while in a psychiatric hospital for suicide attempts, this book takes the reader through a long journey from an abusive childhood with a raging alcoholic father, into the crazy, insane world of alcoholism, drug addiction and mental illness. It is the life story of how one young woman who destroyed two marriages, many relationships, almost lost her children and eventually her sanity, chose to rise above her many difficulties and reach out for help. In taking the first step of admitting herself to a psychiatric hospital, she was able to admit that she was an alcoholic, drug addict, bipolar and depressed, and had been for many years. Eventually, it explained everything about her past behavior and why she did the things she did. The answer started to become clear. Hope became serenity, serenity turned into acceptance, acceptance developed into peace and the peace has led to an immense sense of joy and contentment. It took that one first step. I hope and pray that all who read this book can discover for themselves that anything is possible, that life is worth living, and you, too, can have this joy, today, and one day at a time.

There is no such thing as an alcoholic and there is no such disease as alcoholism! (as society understands it). Whether you agree with this statement or not, one thing is for sure, you will never see alcohol in the same light ever again after reading this book. Jason Vale takes an honest and hard hitting look at people's conceptions of our most widely consumed drug. Jason's major argument is there is no such thing as an 'alcoholic' and that we are conditioned to accept alcohol as a 'normal' substance in today's society despite the fact that it is the major cause of many of today's social problems and a wide range of health issues. This book is much more than a simple eye opener, it will: change the way you see alcohol forever; show you how to stop drinking; help you enjoy the process and enjoy your life so much more than you do now without having to drink alcohol. So open your mind and take a journey with Jason to explore the myths about the most used and accepted drug addiction in the world!

They visited during my last day of blackout drinking, and to this day I have no recollection of the visit or my incredibly destructive words and behaviour. I was in bed with a half-drunk huge bottle of vodka by my bedside.

Dying for a Drink is a true story of the chaos and hurt caused by an alcoholic. The author, telling her own story, writes of time spent in multiple rehabs, both in the United Kingdom and Sydney, Australia. She writes in the hope that her story will encourage other alcoholics and addicts (which can be anybody addicted to anything)that they will see in their own stories the similarities rather than the differences. The memoir depicts her rapid decline after she crossed the invisible line and shows how her loved ones were devastated by her behaviourand how they lived in fear that this disease would lead to her death. It chronicles, too, her sense of freedom and surrender and hope amid the sobriety from which she is sharing her journey and the beginnings of relationships repaired, with both loved ones and self.
