BOOK RECOMMENDATION by clinician Gabrielle Emerzian!

Quit Like a Woman by Holly Whitaker.

This book is an interesting exploration of the culture of alcohol consumption and its effects on women in our society. This is part memoir, part cultural critique that emphasizes the creation of a life that we don’t want to escape from. Not only is the book relatable, but it’s thought-provoking regardless of the status of the individual’s relationship with alcohol. Whether alcohol has been problematic for you or not, there is a wonderful message about healing and how to get there.
