Summary

Would life be better without alcohol?

It’s the nagging question more and more of us are finding harder to ignore, whether we have a “problem” with alcohol or not. After all, we yoga. We green juice. We meditate. We self-care. And yet, come the end of a long workday, the start of a weekend, an awkward social situation, we drink. One glass of wine turns into two turns into a bottle. In the face of how we care for ourselves otherwise, it’s hard to avoid how alcohol really makes us feel: terrible

How different would our lives be if we stopped drinking on autopilot? If we stopped drinking altogether? Really different, it turns out. Really better. Frank, funny, and always judgment-free, Sober Curious is a bold guide to choosing to live hangover-free, from Ruby Warrington, one of the leading voices of the new sobriety movement.  

Drawing on research, expert interviews, and personal narrative, Sober Curious is a radical takedown of the myths that keep so many of us drinking. Inspiring, timely, and blame-free, Sober Curious is both conversation starter and handbook - essential information that empowers listeners to transform their relationship with alcohol so we can lead our most fulfilling lives.

This book could almost drive me to drink

I listened to the first ten minutes of this and cringed several times.

Firstly, it's narrated by the author. Why not spend a bit of cash and get an actual voice-over artist?

Secondly, it's clear the author is desperate to tap into the American market. In the few minutes I listened to she referred to "the emergency room" instead of "A & E", "college" instead of "uni" and the worst one of all, pronounced "buoyed" like "boo-eed".

If this book had any substance at all then it's a shame as I can't get past this cringeworthy narration.
