Description - Quit Like a Woman: The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol by Holly Glenn Whitaker

*The book that inspired Chrissy Teigen and Sex and The City's Miranda to quit drinking*
_____________________________
'An incredible read' CHRISSY TEIGEN
'Has the power to change your relationship with your entire life' GLENNON DOYLE

We live in a world obsessed with drinking. We drink at work events, lunches, book clubs and weddings. Yet no one ever questions alcohol's ubiquity. In fact, the only thing ever questioned is why people don't drink. It is a qualifier for belonging. As a society, we are obsessed with health and wellness, yet we uphold alcohol as some sort of magic elixir. It is anything but.

When Holly Whitaker started to look for a way to recover, the support systems she found for recovery where archaic and patriarchal. Urging drinkers towards a newfound humility is great if you're a man, but if you're a woman and not in a position to renounce privileges you never had, a whole other approach is needed.
_____________________________
Honest, witty and trenchant, Quit Like a Woman is at once a ground-breaking look at drinking culture, a call to arms, and a celebration of learning how to claim everything life has to offer.
