Part recovery, part self-help, and all real, raw stories of waking up for the sake of your self and your children, Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore follows one mother's journey from cocktail mama to sober mama. The loving mother of twins and a newborn, Brownell used alcohol to maintain a sense of her adult self and be more than "just mommy." It didn't take long before her drinking spiraled out of control, consuming her life and marriage, and she realized that she needed serious help.

Both heart-wrenching and inspiring, this is Brownell?s true-life story, from the first thirty days to the year mark. Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore is not a book that preaches or simply takes the reader through the Twelve Steps. It provides hope and motivation to get into a program and balance your life as a mother and a recovering alcoholic.


Rachael Brownell is the mother of three and a recovering alcoholic and perfectionist. She writes a monthly column, "Rugrat Reprieve," for the Imperfect Parent, wrote a daily column for Babble's "Strollerderby Parenting" blog, and was recently managing editor for supereco.com. She lives and breathes books and language.
