Synopsis

The long-awaited sequel to THE UNEXPECTED JOY OF BEING SOBER - the Sunday Times bestseller



'Exquisite' - Fearne Cotton



'A paean to the longer-term pleasures of staying booze-free' - The Guardian



'The kind of book that changes lives, and very possibly saves them' - The Lancet Psychiatry



'A reflective, raw and riveting read. A beautiful book on what it takes to root for yourself' - Emma Gannon, Ctrl Alt Delete



'No other author writes about sober living with as much warmth or emotional range as Catherine Gray. Her deep insight into the subtle psychologies of drinking, and of life, means that everything she writes is both utterly relatable and stretches our minds. Hers is a rare wisdom.' - Dr Richard Piper, CEO, Alcohol Change UK



'Stone cold sober.'



Sounds horrible, doesn't it? Hard, icy. Brrrrr. No bloody ta.



However, as the millions who choose to stay sober now know, the propaganda around drinking and sobriety is wonky. Sober doesn't feel stony, or cold.



Retired wreckhead Catherine Gray, author of surprise bestseller The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober, is now in her ninth sober year and has learnt a damn sight more.



This hotly anticipated sequel enlists the help of experts and case studies, turning a curious, playful gaze onto provocative questions. Is alcohol a parenting aid? Why are booze and cocaine such a horse and carriage? Once an addict, always an addict? How do you feel safe - from alcohol, others and yourself - in sobriety?



Whether you're a dedicated boozehound, flirting with teetotalling, or already sober, this witty, gritty read may just change how you think about alcohol forever.



Praise for The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober:

'Fascinating' - Bryony Gordon

'Truthful, modern and real' - Stylist

'Brave, witty and brilliantly written' - Marie Claire

'Gray's tale of going sober is uplifting and inspiring' - Evening Standard

'Not remotely preachy' - Sunday Times

'Jaunty, shrewd and convincing' - Sunday Telegraph

'Admirably honest, light, bubbly and remarkably rarely annoying' - Guardian

'An empathetic, warm and hilarious tale from a hugely likeable human' - The Lancet Psychiatry
