Nice girls don't drink: stories of recovery
What's it like to be a woman alcoholic in America? How does a woman's drinking affect her children, husband, lover, employer, fellow workers, and friends? Nice Girls Don't Drink answers these questions as no other book does--through the voices of some 25 women alcoholics who have hit rock bottom, confronted their addiction face-to-face, and completely turned their lives around. By interviewing women from varied backgrounds, Hafner facilitates the identification process found to be so helpful to recovering alcoholics, and the book contains a section listing suggestions for where to get help, the twelve steps of AA, and the affirmations of Women for Sobriety. Though obviously for the women alcoholic, Nice Girls Don't Drink is also an excellent source of comfort and inspiration for those involved in overcoming an emotional or physical handicap of any kind.
