Dying for a Drink is a true story of the chaos and hurt caused by an alcoholic. The author, telling her own story, writes of time spent in multiple rehabs, both in the United Kingdom and Sydney, Australia. She writes in the hope that her story will encourage others alcoholics and addicts (which can be anybody addicted to anything)that they will see in their own stories the similarities rather than the differences. The memoir depicts her rapid decline after she crossed the invisible line and shows how her loved ones were devastated by her behaviourand how they lived in fear that this disease would lead to her death. It chronicles, too, her sense of freedom and surrender and hope amid the sobriety from which she is sharing her journey and the beginnings of relationships repaired, with both loved ones and self.
