“Peggi’s account of how she turned her life around—and helped others to do so, too–is brave, inspiring, and deliciously detailed.”

So much of your story resonates with me. I can’t imagine how much your book is going to help those looking for validation that they are not alone. This Side of Alcohol belongs up there on the Quit Lit top books.
