Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health.

Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need.
