Sober Curious

Ruby Warrington ☆ 2 Review

Several years ago I made some big changes in the areas of diet and exercise The program I started with involved cutting out alcohol After I was done with a program I found that drinking cutting out alcohol After I was done with a program I found that drinking lost its appeal I have always loved a good drinkor two But now I simply don t feel good when I drink alcohol and it is no longer enjoyable for me I ve been curious about what may have happened physically andor mentally during that long layoffThe title of this book intrigued me and after flipping through it I decided to check it out of the local library It appeared that Warrington was addressing the uestions I had I wanted to like th 7th book for 2019Sober Curious efers to people who are not alcoholics for who taking an AA oath of lifelong abstinence would feel false but who do want to explore the potential joys of living without alcohol for extended periods of time Warrington a former journalist who has worked in both London and NYC knows the alcohol fueled lifestyle puts forward a good argument for the virtues of a Sober Curious lifestyle and offers many useful suggestions for how to navigate this choice Warrington does stray at times into an uncomfortably New Age tone but this is pretty minimal and easy enough to pass over for those allergic to this sort of thing The book lacks any discussion around the science of drinking which I found personally found disappointing but that is perhaps for a different sort of book 3 stars If you find yourself A History of Early Modern Southeast Asia, 1400-1830 reading this book I think it s safe to say you want towish youalready do drink less and youe curious about this title That s me Someone who has Ferdinand, der Mann mit dem freundlichen Herzen realized that even casual drinking that almost neveresults in getting sloppy or hangovers just isn t fun any And maybe never was For those Alcora - O Acordo Secreto do Colonialismo reasons the book starts out great andeally jives with what I m already thinking I appreciate the ealization that I am not the only person out there who thinks booze sucks Who struggles with FOMA fear of missing alcohol when you see a glass of wine on a sunny patio at a cafe but stillllll you know it sucks It doesn t fulfill And HEY that is OK Okay so all those kinds of ideas and themes are hit on in the first 40%ish of the book and for that I give this book a thumbs up solid 3 stars The positives are the big take away that YOU CAN DECIDE WHAT YOU DO with yourself and your body in elation to booze this is said with great trepidation and not directed toward people suffering from addiction or alcoholism But for the person who just kinda thinks alcohol sucks and doesn t struggle with it beyond a bad habit like eating too much sometimes it is a eally worthwhile concept that you can decide how you consume it and live your life You can spend time with friends and family and go out and not imbibe AND feel better for it But the topic perhaps naturally "EVOLVES IN TO WHAT YOU COULD "in to what you could be doing instead of drinking and maybe that is totally OK for a self help type book there is a self help type book There is wrong with suggesting mediation or yoga or crafting or anything else to occupy yourself to help you be fulfilled or present or creative Nothing wrong with that But that has uickly become ALL that this book is about ather than what I think the original topic intended to be or seems it should be based on the title but maybe I m wrong Maybe I just want to Before Copernicus read about the evils of alcoholather than living in the healthy after So lets be clear AF here I am a white priv woman Living in a very white priv world I GO TO YOGA almost daily I live in Cali I drink Kombucha I have dabbled in meditation I literally CAN go float in the ocean as she suggests Would life be better without alcoholIt's the nagging uestion and of us are finding harder to ignore whether we have a problem with alcohol or not After all we yoga We green juice We meditate We self care And yet come the end of a long work day the start of a weekend an awkward social situation we drink One glass of wine turns into two turns into a bottle In the face of how we care. .
F I want But as this book began to wrap up I "Found It Insulting What About "it insulting What about person who cares their skin color or priv or whatever who cannot afford yoga or doesn t have access to it who doesn t live on a freaking ocean who doesn t know what the heck a sound bath is and can t access one for 3000 miles if they wanted to I sat here ealizing how lucky I am that I already have a deep yoga practice and the thought of deepening my mediation practice isn t that scary But this is so particular and specific and in most cases expensiveThis book made me feel shitty elief thank god I m not the other guy WELL THANK GOD I M ALREADY A FULL BLOODED CALIFORNIAN Like PHEW I m in the clear I do yoga so a leap to daily mediation isn t crazy I m free healthy safe I can defeat the urge to drink because it doesn t bring me joy BUT WHAT ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE Does this make sense Am I getting wrapped up in the wrong thing Again nothing wrong with suggesting things to do instead of drinking Nothing There is lots of free yoga on you tube people can try assuming which we shouldn t that everyone has an internet connection and a phone or computer and so on Okay so whats my problem I guess the specificity and type of suggestions are so freaking upper class trendy magazine headline that even I a super white priv woman is aware of how insulting it is to a lot of people and not just the extremely impoverished She seriously suggests sound baths superfoods shambalic something or others and floating in the ocean OK NO PROB Let me go to my local spot in my local ocean Is anyone else irritated by this I was Health and Wellbeing in Childhood really excited to see this idea being talked about that alcohol is actuallyeally ludicrous and the fact that its socially acceptable is insane and why do we all succumb to it so many of us deeply hate it But it s turned in to a super yuppie new age lifestyle guru book My sentences don t make sense any but I THINK my point has been made For all that crap its a 1 star book So 3 stars for the actual alcohol discussion 1 star for new age BS 2 star over all With the all the Child Support, for the Non-Custodial Parent, Alabama Edition (Series 1, for the Non-Custodial Parent) references to Brene Brown I kind of wished Brene Brown was writing it This book is a mustead for anyone who drinks even if alcohol isn t an issue in your life Warrington offers fresh insights and uestions into why We Turn To Alcohol In The First Place What Role turn to alcohol in the first place what L.
