Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget by Sarah Hepola

Sarah Hepola is an alcoholic and this is her story.

Her drinking cause her to lose time, friends, family, love, jobs and self respect.

Sarah often woke up with no memory of what she had done, been or where she was.
Her life had spiraled out of control and she has has used this book as a platform to
chronicle what she can remember. Her memories are difficult to read and you can't help but cheer her on when turns her life right side up.

This is an excellent book to read if you or someone you know is an alcoholic. Many, members of my family have a "drinking" problem, they don't see it. I can't say that reading this book has helped quell the anger or frustration I feel when dealing with them or hearing about their issues but it gives me a slight belief in hope. Hope that one day they will take the path to recovery.
