Do you count down the minutes to wine o'clock on a daily basis? Is a bottle of Pinot Grigio your friend at the end of a long hard day? If you want to give up being controlled and defined by alcohol then now is the time to join The Sober Revolution. Fed up of living in a fog of hangovers, lethargy and guilt from too much wine? Have you tried to cut down without success? You are not alone. When it comes to alcohol, millions of people around the world find it hard to exercise moderation and become stuck in a vicious cycle of blame, guilt and using more alcohol as a way of coping.
The Sober Revolution looks at women and their relationships with alcohol, exploring the myths behind this socially acceptable, yet often destructive habit. Rather than continuing the sad spiral into addiction, it helps women regain control of their drinking and live happier, healthier lives.
Sarah Turner, cognitive behavioral therapist and addictions counsellor, and Lucy Rocca, founder of Soberistas.com, the popular social networking site for women who have successfully kicked the booze or would like to, give an insight into ways to find a route out of the world of wine. The Sober Revolution will open your eyes to the dangers of social drinking and give you the tools you need to have a happy life without the wine.
Listen to it now and call time on wine o'clock forever.

Well worth listening to. highlights that alcohol really does us no favors & you better off without it. I love the analogy of alcohol being like a partner that is just no good for you but they are hard to give up.
"Easy Listen - Not Quite What I Expected"
I thought for some reason that this was a book that had to do with drinking in the US women's population - the mommies with their "book clubs" where they drink wine. Not sure why I thought that. But it is actually another book about women in the UK and how they are effected by that hard drinking culture. I found the stories interesting, if not really relevant to me. I was interested in the issue of how they defined alcohol dependence as opposed to alcohol abuse but this is not really addressed beyond saying that if you are reading this book you must need to be alcohol free. The authors are sincerely trying to help and the stories were varied and interesting enough. Just not quite what I was looking for. Would have been better if I had been looking for someone to convince me of the positives of an alcohol free lifestyle.
"First Time Reviewer"
Until today I have never felt compelled to write a review. I listened to this book on Audible and it totally resonated with me to the point where I want to shout from the rooftops that I am about to embark on an alcohol free lifestyle. I know it's not going to be easy but I feel I have found a friend in this book, which I know I will read/listen to again and again for support and encouragement. I just placed my order for The Six Week Plan and will be checking out the Soberista website!!! I am truly excited for this journey and recommend this book to All women who have ever once wondered if alcohol or wine was their nemesis!!!
"Required reading for all young women"
Read this book ladies..... and share with as many friends and young women as possible.
"Excellent reading for those concerned about their relationship with alcohol"
This book really helped me understand my alcohol dependency and that my situation was common to many other women. It has helped me take some serious steps towards giving up alcohol.
I loved the stories of others and their struggles. These were told openly and honestly.
Def a great book on why we drink so much. I def recommend this book if u are trying to quit for good.
"Loved this book"
Wow very moving and captivating. I spent the whole time so engaged with the story that I continually thought of all the friends that I have to. It this book for. After reading "kick the drink" this book was like the icing on top of all the reasons alcohol robs your life of peace. I cannot recommend this enough! The stories at the end might be the best part of the book as you can find yourself and people around you in this stories in some way. Very impactful.
The title and cover were much more exciting than the book. The first half was very repetitive and I think there is a six week than that is not included in the audio.
