This book was exactly what I needed to break free from the psychological chains that AA had on me about nine months into my sobriety. Around that time, I felt like I couldn't do anything or go anywhere unless there was an AA meeting close by, and I was so scared that if I left AA I would drink again. Gillian's story gave me the courage to try a life of sobriety without the never-ending meetings and cliches of AA. I am very grateful that AA was there when I needed it, but I didn't want to keep the label of alcoholic for the rest of my life. I have been happily sober for nine years and free from AA for eight! I am NOT an alcoholic anymore; I'm just a normal human being who chooses not to drink!
