Whether you’ve decided to quit drinking, or are ‘dry-curious’, this book shines a new light on the pleasures of being free of alcohol dependence.
In The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober, Catherine Gray finds out from neuroscientists and psychologists why we drink, and what it does to our brains and bodies.
Starting with her own descent into the netherworld of compulsive drinking, in unflinching detail, this book is about escaping from alcohol dependence, and the intoxicating sense of freedom it can bring – and how life with zero hangovers or shakes is better than anything that booze can offer.
A gripping read, both moving and witty – and yes, sobering. With a wealth of practical advice, support, encouragement and motivation, this is a must-read for anyone questioning their relationship with alcohol.
