Boozers! Want to quit? Not quite ready for actual meetings? Interested in how other people did it? Or just fancy a trawl through the rock bottoms of strangers? Whether you’re sober curious or coming to realise that your drinking is messing your life up, there’s an extensive cocktail of quit lit out there for you to try.
