"Incredible! I wouldn’t have completed Dry January® if it wasn’t for this book! It’s such an incredible book and I learned so much, a lot which I still use now! If you’re considering buying...get it!"

"Downloaded this book as I impulsively decided to do the Dry January® challenge. So glad I did. Packed with great ideas and resources and so funny in places. Love the style of the writing. As though the author was just having a chat. Definitely not a preachy book about never drinking again. Just lots of facts and anecdotes."
