This book is for anyone who feels caught in a cycle of drinking—either too much or too often—with the inability to slow down, stop, or speak up. Our society uses a dangerous currency: alcohol. It affects many; it comes to steal and destroy. It’s time to have an honest conversation about its role in your life. Are you the boss, or is alcohol the master? There is a stigma attached to narratives about alcohol in our lives—denial, downplaying, and deflection. And there is a major oversight when assessing the true and very real effects alcohol has on the individual, families, and society at large. Why is it that we open a drink at any occasion for any reason—be it sad, bad, or brilliant—without consideration for the long-term effects? Why is it we don’t have a solid understanding of why we are either intoxicated, hungover, or waiting for the next round? After three years of living alcohol-free, Maz Compton is speaking her truth to anyone who feels trapped in an alcohol-induced yet high-functioning haze, as she was, and has designed a thirty-one-day blueprint to help people break free from the endless cycle of drinking and guilt and to redefine their relationship with alcohol to embrace a new way of life—one of freedom and one of wellness. You don’t have to hit rock bottom to ask yourself, Am I okay with my relationship with alcohol? For too long, we have kept quiet, suffering in silence through social norms, but it’s time to speak up, be heard, and make a change. UnSpoken is your glimmer of hope, helping you out of the place you are stuck and into a life of empowered choice. This book will teach you how you can stop getting wasted and how to start being awesome.
