The goal isn't to be sober. The goal is to love yourself so much you don't need to drink.

For decades we have been sold the idea that alcohol is our 'reward' at the end of a busy day. Not only do we use it to celebrate and commiserate, but we rely on it to relieve the stress and exhaustion of the daily grind - to help us switch off, switch on, numb emotions, enhance emotions and everything in between. We use it for self-care, for socialising, for time for ourselves.

We are drinking more than ever, and it affects our physical and mental wellbeing in ways we don't even realise. Even low alcohol consumption negatively impacts our sleep, anxiety levels, weight and skin, not to mention our mood and mindset. If you're sick and tired of feeling 5 out of 10 most days and can't remember when you last felt energised, optimistic or motivated, know that you're not alone.

Creating a life without alcohol can feel too hard and more than a little scary. In a culture so captivated with booze, in a society that sells alcohol to us everywhere we turn, can we really remove it altogether and still be happy? The answer is absolutely YES, and this book will show you how.

Packed full of guidance, support and practical tools, Beyond Booze will help you create a life you love so much that you no longer need to drink. It's not so much about how to take alcohol out, but rather what to add in to create a more fulfilling, purposeful and contented life. It's about finding your way back to feeling 10 out of 10, and falling in love with life - and yourself - without booze.
