Do you worry that your drinking may have unintended consequences to your health, your family, your relationships, and your profession? We live in a boozy culture that is entrenched with the idea that women and wine go hand in hand. Is your book club really a “wine club”? Do you drink to “cope” with the anxiety of parenting and the pressures of being a mom, a wife, or a professional? In Raising the Bottom, mothers, daughters, and health professionals share their stories of why they drank, how they stopped, and the joys and rewards of being present in their lives once they kicked alcohol to the curb. In these pages, women share their drinking stories of hitting emotional bottoms—so you don’t have to.
