Product description

Product Description

When Rebecca Weller’s pounding, dehydrated head woke her at 3am, yet again, she stared at the ceiling, wondering why the hell she kept doing this to herself. At 39 years of age - and a Health Coach, no less - she knew better than to down several bottles of wine per week. Her increasingly dysfunctional relationship with alcohol had to stop, but after decades of social drinking, she was terrified of what that might mean. 

How could she live a joyful existence, without alcohol? How would she relax, socialise, or celebrate - without wine?

In sheer frustration, on a morning filled with regret and tears, she embarks on a 3-month sobriety experiment that becomes a quest for self-discovery, and ultimately, transforms her entire world.  

A heartfelt, moving, and inspiring story for anyone who has ever had to give up something they loved in order to get what they truly wanted.

A Happier Hour is a memoir that moves beyond addiction, giving a behind-the-scenes look into what it takes to get (and stay) sober in a culture that celebrates alcohol.

As an Australian woman in her late thirties, I can relate to Rebecca's story so much. Bex is successful in every area of her life except one - controlling her drinking. From unexpected blackouts to hiding her drinking from loved ones, her love of alcohol and her identity as the life of the party is destroying her. And the worst part is the toll it takes on her self esteem - she finds it harder and harder to reconcile her role as a health coach with the way she obliterates herself on weekends. But then she has a series of breakthroughs and chooses to try a "sober experiment" that leads her to all the answers she's been seeking. To freedom. Bex's positivity and uplifting messages have convinced me that I too can pursue a sober life and be happier than I ever imagined. And for this, I can't thank her enough.

LOVED this book. Devoured it within a day. I related, re-lived, cringed and cried. Your struggle with drinking is so similar to mine. I have been attempting to live a life of sobriety for the last 7 years but my inner booze beast has always had the upper hand. Reading your story on how you overcame your desire for drink by living a life of love, passion and beauty is truly inspirational. Just reading this book has given me the hope that maybe, just maybe I can actually devote myself to my soul's desires (and not the drink) and live an authentic life of joy and happiness. Cheers to you Rebecca for being brave enough to share your story. The women of the world need to read this to see that a life of sexy sobriety is truly possible.

I hope others find it more useful

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 1 September 2016
By Sara K Smith - Published on Amazon.com

I absolutely loved this book! Bex has an honest, refreshing voice and it was wonderful to read her story. I've been sober for years and this reenergized me, made me think again about why I drank in the first place, and how wonderful it is to be sober. I would recommend this book to any woman struggling with drinking!

5.0 out of 5 stars Live Happy Hangover Free! 17 August 2016
By Cara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this book in 2 days. It's eye opening, motivating, and REAL!

If you've ever wondered if a break from alcohol would be a good thing for you, this book is a great starting place to explore the issue.

No judgement, no preaching, simply one woman's story about willingness to get super honest about her behavior and brave enough to face her emotions champagne free.

(Her program and insight is also what helped me break the 100 alcohol free mark!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Book! 8 September 2016

Loved Bex Weller's relatable account of letting go of her PR party girl lifestyle and identity to find a life she truly loved. A tale so many of us can relate to - any woman who has had one too many hangovers and knows deep down the party is over can take heart and inspiration in the proof that choosing to kick out the wine might just be the key to more than you ever imagined to be possible - wonderful !

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in one day! Truly engaging. 12 August 2016
By Cheaton - Published on Amazon.com

I have NEVER read a book, cover-to-cover in one afternoon, but that's what I did as soon as this book arrived at my door. Being a subscriber for over a year, I thought I knew all I needed to know about Bex and her story. Learning the details behind-the-scenes of HOW everything came together for her was truly inspiring. Parallels are sure to be drawn by the reader at various points. I recommend to anyone who feels they are just going through the motions of drinking and have a sneaking suspicion it's no longer adding anything to their life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Full stop. 26 December 2016

Excellent. Well thought out, well written, well communicated. I bought this for self for Christmas gift, and read it throughout day. A great resource, so personal, so raw. I commend Ms. Weller for her ability to bring such a "hush hush" topic to the forefront for women and men alike and to motivate them to not life a half-lived life. Brilliant.
