High Sobriety: Confessions of a Drinker

by Alice King

"Alice King had the dream job. As a leading wine writer she was in a position to indulge in her passion for wine and words while flying first class around the world to be extravagantly entertained by wine growers hoping for a good write-up. As her reputation grew, her superb palate and remarkable expertise were in constant demand." "But Alice was also a wife and mother. She found herself juggling babies' bottles and vodka bottles as her drinking spiralled out of control. She became the Alice who found the bottle labelled 'Drink Me' - and did. Regularly waking up with no idea where she had been the night before, nursing mysterious injuries only alcohol could anaesthetise, her life - once one long party - become one long hangover. Marriage, house and career lost, and three young children to raise. Alice reached rock bottom. She acknowledged she had a drink problem and began the longest journey of her life - to sobriety and beyond." "In this powerful and moving memoir, she not only shows how easy it is to become caught up in alcohol's addictive appeal, she also looks back on her difficult fight for recovery and explains how, taken it one day at a time, she is regaining control. Revealing, honest and laced with black humour, High Sobriety demonstrates that alcoholism can happen to anyone. This is an inspiring true story filled with hope, showing how the battle against this killer disease can be fought and won."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
