And for full disclosure, Club Soda founder Laura has also written two pages to the book on her thoughts on alcohol-free cocktails. I just stood in there for a couple of minutes, having a bit of a break, marvelling at how alcohol had somehow taken charge of the whole rhythm of my being. Ever since he was a teenager, drinking was his idea of a good time - and not just his, but seemingly the whole nation's.

Only recently someone reported, in hushed and shocked tones, that a relative going through a trauma had drunk a litre bottle of vodka – and I asked ‘over what time period? As it turned out, I had a really good time, but it became startlingly clear how reliant I was on alcohol.

How can we reconnect to one another and to what's sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable? He details his experiences in cutting down, to comic and insightful effect, and skilfully but never preachingly, offers suggestions for others, too. The popular broadcaster and columnist sets out to discover the unsung pleasures of drinking in moderation.

Join the inimitable Chiles as he sets out around Britain and plumbs his only slightly fuzzy memories of a lifetime in pubs in a quest to find the good drinker within. Kate and Mandy are familiar faces in the Club Soda community, and this is not their first book either. This bleak statement is especially true for many pop and rock stars, who find themselves catapulted from fame into obscurity virtually overnight, given the unforgiving vagaries of the music industry. I have a number of friends who have given up alcohol completely, and had various mental health issues entwined with alcohol issues (although none were lying in a doorstep alcoholics, cracking open the vodka at breakfast) but at the same time I didn’t feel my husband and I had ‘that much of a problem’.Again, I would stress it’s a personal opinion but if you are looking for inspiration to stop drinking I don’t think it’s this book. I can freely admit that both of us drink far more than the recommended limits – and definitely when on holiday would be up at a level similar to Adrian’s historic levels. And sober living is weaved into the text throughout; though it is not the only topic, everything supports it. In five or ten years, the way I was going, it was clear to me that I’d have had to stop drinking completely or face some pretty dire consequences with my innards.
