"unwasted"

my take: Another book on addiction/recovery ... this is a memoir of an alcoholic on how she learned to live without being "wasted."

Although it's about alcohol addiction, I think her story can be applied to any bad habit one is trying to overcome ... it's about that uncomfortable place where the security blanket of habit or addiction (drugs, cigarettes, gambling, over-eating) has been dropped and the vulnerability of living without it.

The writing is a bit brash & crass, but an interesting insight into one woman's life without booze ... if you've ever been out to eat with an alcoholic ... do you order a drink or not? She's got an opinion.

my source: saw this while cruising the Amazon website

my verdict: worth a read .... I handed my copy off to my ladies in recovery... eager to hear their response
