Holly's story was that of all the women who try to conform to a life they are told they should want - one that looks good on paper and in movies.

Holly's story was that of all the women who try to conform to a life they are told they should want - one that looks good on paper and in movies. She drank green juice and made all the right sounds with men she didn't really like and killed it in the board room and had a yoga-tight body. She did all the right things until all the right things left her prostrate, drunk, on the floor of her apartment.

But when she started to look for a way to recover, the support systems she found for sobriety were 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.

Quit Like a Woman is a memoir which is also a call to arms, a revolution against everything we assume is true about alcohol and addiction, and a celebration of learning how to claim everything life has to offer.
