High Sobriety free pdf As a professional and successful wine writer, Alice King had her dream job. The daughter of a wine salesman and blessed with a superb palate, Alice had always been surrounded by alcohol. But the more she got into her job, the more she found herself drinking. By the time she found herself regularly waking up at 4.35 in the morning, vomiting into the kitchen sink, and wondering what had happened to the bottle of vodka that had been full when she came home the previous evening but was now mysteriously empty, she realised she had a problem. She needed a drink. This book tells the story of one person's descent into alcoholism. It illustrates the insidious appeal of drinking, and shows how social high spirits or 'doing the job' can lead to serious trouble. It shows how drink problems can happen to anyone, whatever age, sex or class. One in six people has a problem with alcohol, which kills more people each year than heart disease. This book will not only raise awareness of the problem, but can help people to overcome it.
