In My Life Without Drink the author takes the reader through a life where insecurity in childhood is carried forward to the adult years when alcohol is taken up as a means of coping. Through marriage, childbirth, estrangement and brushes with the law, the author slides in and out of dependency but always succumbs to the craving described as trying “to get that ‘high’ feeling again and again but it is well-nigh impossible.”How she turns things around must be an inspiration to those who can see no way out of a terrible ‘disease’ that can afflict anyone at any time.A short book on a long and painful story with an ending full of hope: “I walked out free and have been sober for seventeen years.”The author has also written a delightful children’s story called ‘Bertie the Croc’, which you will find towards the end of this book.

Sarah Smith has been writing and illustrating children’s books with some success. This has helped her overcome her alcohol addiction. Sarah wanted to tell her story to help others to show there is always a way out, with love and support and hard work. Sarah also strives to help families of alcoholics, to understand what addiction means, and to fight for their loved ones’ lives when they cannot.

Sarah was born in Durham and lived in Hertfordshire, Nottingham and Sheffield, before returning to her roots, where she has lived for twenty years. Sarah studied art and graphic design, leading to writing and illustrating children’s books.
