I loved this book. The writer comes across as very genuine, relatable, likeable. I found her story humbling. It takes a lot of courage to write so honestly. She is of course right about alcohol. We all know it, but we’re scared to really admit it. I’d say this book is essential reading for anyone sober curious, anyone who’s ever worried about their drinking, anyone wondering why alcohol has such a grip on socialising in the UK. I particularly liked her analogies about tunnels and trapdoors - what an accurate way of describing drinking to numb anxiety and pain. I’ve recommended this book to many of my friends.
Thank you Catherine & I wish you all the best for the future!

More than half of the book is dedicated to the virtues of being sober. I feel like she’s trying to either convince me to become sober or she trying to convince herself as to why she quit drinking in the first place. She repeats her message so many times than it starts to feel preachy.
On top of the bland performance, it’s also terribly written. The language and conversational style is mor suited to a diary entry than a book. In fact, it feels like much of the book had been taken, entry for entry from her diary.
The only solace is that I’m sure this book will help someone. And maybe that’s enough for an audio book of this nature.
