*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.

I've long suspected that Holly Whitaker is a genius. This book is confirmation. It's a brilliantly clever, meticulously researched, fearless, snort-out-loud funny read that grabs you and won't let go. * Catherine Gray * Funny, fast-paced, and bracingly candid ... Holly Whitaker is no polished model of self-help evangelism, nor is her memoir-manifesto selling a one-size-fits-all-solution. Her story is a messy human one and all the more convincing that sobriety is a feminist issue -- Melissa Febos An unflinching examination of how our drinking culture hurts women and a gorgeous memoir of how one woman healed herself. Quit Like a Woman will change your relationship with alcohol - and it has the power to change your relationship with your entire life. * Glennon Doyle * This thoughtful, moving book will help a lot of people get to a healthier place. * Johann Hari *
