Product description

Review

'We all have something to gain from reading this book ... Jill describes this year where her "outer and inner worlds" collide in intimate detail, with total honesty and with courage.'

--John Rogerson "CEO of the Australian Drug Foundation "

'Stark made me think about the cultural role of alcohol, and the things we take for granted that are actually a bit messed up.'

--Little Girl With a Big Pen

'A sobering, and distinctly inspiring, glimpse of what Australia might look like without a hangover ... Stark writes with honesty and unnerving clarity. Over its pages, the reader gradually comes to understand not just that Aussies don't like to give up the drink, but that we don't like it when our mates do, either.'

--Annabel Crabb

'A genuinely thought-provoking read with something worth contemplating for everyone' Four-and-a-half Stars

--Adelaide Advertiser

'Stark is wise in how she tells her story ... I had a eureka moment with this book.'

--Bookbag (UK)

'insightful, funny, challenging and interesting ... I highly recommend this for a book club. It's a subject that would get people talking.'

--Berkelouw Books

'I was completely engaged ... Her approach is fresh and funny, artlessly open, and most importantly, accessible. She's not interested in preaching to the masses but rather is on a mission to decipher her own complicated feelings ... It is this candidness that makes her book so enjoyable.' Book of the Week

--Readings

'A fun, fresh look at one woman's battle to commiserate, celebrate, relax and party without the help of one of the last legal recreational drugs ... Jill Stark is a cool sober chick and it's a joy to go along for the dry ride'

--Leila McKinnon "Australian Women's Weekly "

'Jill Stark certainly believed in immersing herself in her work ... Stark stuck with her sobriety plan, concluding "I know now that alcohol does not define me."'

--Martin Stevenson "Daily Advertiser, Launceston Examiner "

'What gives this book resonance is Stark's ability to balance a serious agenda, backed by her interviews, statistics and the inside information to which a health reporter has access, with a personal narrative that is equally earnest in its intent but lighter in its execution ... High Sobriety is an entertaining and informative read about one woman's year of online dating, family reunions and beer gardens without a drink, and her account of the nation's attitude towards the thing she denies herself.'

--The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald

Book Description

Will Jill make it through the year without booze? And if she does, will she go back to her old habits, or has she called last drinks? This is a funny, moving, and insightful exploration of why we drink, how we got here, and what happens when we turn off the tap.
