9780007503582: Drink: The Deadly Relationship Between Women and Alcohol

The new face of risky drinking is female. The problem: a global epidemic of bingeing. The solution: a brave new approach to female recovery.

This is my story, and it's particular. But I am not alone. Drinking problems challenge a growing number of women.
The new reality: binge drinking is increasing among young adults – and women are largely responsible for this trend. Women’s buying power has been growing for decades, and their decision-making authority has grown as well. The alcohol industry, well aware of this reality, is now battling for women’s downtime – and their brand loyalty.

Our relationship with alcohol is complex, and growing more so. This book will be essential reading for a huge number of women, a book that's breaks a major taboo. This will be a book for best friends to give one another, mothers to give daughters, sisters to give to each other – a book to read in hiding, when you know you're in trouble. This book will offer companionship for women of every age. It will answer a myriad tough questions.

Intimate and startlingly honest, ‘Drink’ will be a book to change the lives of women of all ages – and those who love them. A book for anyone who thinks they have a problem, or knows someone who may have a problem, and wants to know more. Which means: just about everyone.

Review:

Ann Dowsett Johnston has won 5 Canadian National Magazine Awards. Her research for ‘The Drinking Diaries’ took her across the UK, Canada and the USA and she has written on women and alcohol extensively, particularly for the Toronto Star

‘A wallop of a book … full of riveting candour … Johnston brings the weight of her journalism and academic experience to build a convincing case that women are increasingly succumbing to the dark side of alcohol’ Washington Post

‘In this comprehensively researched and insightful book, Ann Dowsett Johnston chronicles her own destructive dance with alcohol, her recovery and explores disturbing trends in contemporary women’s relationship to alcohol. A crucially important book for anyone interested in women’s health and addiction issues.’ Susan Juby, author of ‘Nice Recovery’

‘“Drink” is a gift to women, to parents, and to all who want to understand the experience of alcoholism. The writing is gripping and vivid, the voice personal, the research exacting, the stories revealing if sometimes heartbreaking, the conclusions essential. A triumphant life, a triumphant book.” Gabor Maté M.D., author of “In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction”

‘A game-changing look at one of our culture’s hidden problems … honest, brave and inspirational.’ Margaret Trudeau, author of “Changing My Mind”

About the Author:

Winner of five National Magazine Awards, a Southam Fellowship and the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy (2011), Ann Dowsett Johnston is a gifted writer, editor and public speaker. Most recently, as Atkinson Fellow in Public Policy, she wrote an 11-part series on Women and Alcohol, appearing in ‘The Toronto Star’. Ann grew up in northern Ontario, rural South Africa and Toronto.
