Inhaltsangabe

Like many women, Clare Pooley found the juggle of a stressful career and family life a struggle, so she left her successful role as a managing partner in one of the world's biggest advertising agencies to look after her family.

She knew the change wouldn't be easy, but she never expected to find herself an overweight, depressed, middle-aged mother of three who was drinking more than a bottle of wine a day and spending her evenings Googling 'am I an alcoholic?'

This book is the bravely honest story of a year in Clare's life. A year that started with her quitting booze and then being given the devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. By the end of the year she is booze-free and cancer-free, no longer has a wine belly and is two stone lighter and with a life that is so much richer, healthier and more rewarding than ever before. She has a happier family and a more positive outlook.

Sober Diaries is an upbeat, funny and positive look at how to live life to the full. Interwoven within Clare's own very personal and brilliantly comic story is research and advice as she discovers the answers to questions like:

  • How do I know if I'm drinking too much?
  • How will I cope at parties?
  • What do I say to friends and family?
  • How do I cope with cravings?
  • If I stop drinking, will I lose weight?
  • What if my partner still drinks?

And many more.

Eine mitreißende Lebensgeschichte

Ich habe mich im Laufe des Buches immer mehr und mehr so gefühlt, als würde ich Clare persönlich kennen. Man kann sich sehr gut in sie hineinversetzen, auch wenn man eine andere Lebenssituation hat. Vor allem ihre inneren Gespräche mit der "wine witch" kamen mir all zu bekannt vor. Jeder, der seinen Alkoholkonsum hinterfragt oder aufhören will, sollte diese Geschichte gehört haben. Sie zeigt auf, dass man Alkohol nicht braucht, um schwierige Zeiten zu überstehen und inspiriert einen, die beste, nüchterne und authentische Version von sich selber zu werden. Sehr inspirierend!

An uplifting story

Somehow I didn't realise that the book was really just about quitting drinking. I thought it's a bit more about her live all together. Apart from that, I enjoyed the story. I think I wasn't the target audience, as I'm in my 20ies and don't drink often. So some descriptions of drinking habits and the challenges that come along with it were a little repetitive for me. Apart from that, I learned a few new things about alcohol and its effects on the body and also liked the self- deprecating and sarcastic humour of the narrater. A plus - it's based on a real story.
And Karen Cass is a fantastic reader anyway.
