Publisher's Summary

The new face of risky drinking is female. The problem: a global epidemic of bingeing. The solution: a brave new approach to female recovery.

Eight years ago, Ann Dowsett Johnston was an award-winning journalist and vice-principal of McGill University. In private, she was wrestling the demon that had undone her own mother; the same demon increasing numbers of women are now battling across the world: alcohol.

Aware of her growing dependency, Ann began to document her experiences with drink - the rules she set, and inevitably broke.

The diary told a story that was not hers alone. From the 17-year-old heart attack victim to the mother of a child with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, women have bravely shared their own journeys through addiction, creating an alarming composite of the female face of dangerous drinking.In this startlingly honest book Ann Dowsett Johnson reveals why the relationship between women and alcohol has spiralled out of control.

Showing how women can escape from this destructive affair, ‘Drink' is essential reading for any woman who thinks she has a problem, and for those who care about her.
