As we enter into a new year and the hashtag #dryjanuary re-circulates around media platforms, we consider those for whom sobriety wasn’t just a short-term choice.
Whether that be through spiralling addiction or just the need for better life balance and clarity in a world consumed by chaos and anxiety, going sober is a challenging and often bumpy ride.
We recommend these books, in which the authors have detailed their personal journeys to sobriety and inner contentment with unflinching honesty, and humour.
