    1 thought on “Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture”

    1. In Raising the Bottom, Lisa Boucher writes with pure honesty, sensitivity and last but not least, inspiring strength. Throughout the book, she shows that alcoholism knows no boundaries - a chilling but true fact. Lisa breathes new life into an issue that many people face every day but rarely have the courage to address. But what I love most about this book is that she doesn't just simply talk about the the problems that alcoholism cause, she offers real, actionable solutions. Highly recommended! [...]

    2. A must read! What's refreshing about Lisa's perspective is that she focuses on alcoholism not only in terms of it's personal costs, but also as a systemic and pervasive part of our culture as a whole.

    3. I loved this honest book that humbly characterizes the daily struggles women face, how alcohol is seemingly an easy fix, but while we think it is temporary, it unapologetically creeps up on us, and becomes an addiction. This book begs an unabashed less look at our realities and coping mechanisms.

    4. Raising The Bottom is a well written book that demonstrates we all don't have to hit the depths of despair to claim recovery. It is a unique perspective not talked about much but so vital. I loved the book and highly recommend it to anyone facing the choice of getting their life on track. A must read!!!

    5. This book came from the heart. Straightforward, well written & full of truth. I have to say, it made me squirm a little because I found myself able to relate in so many ways. Boucher is correct, our culture is saturated with alcohol and one doesn't realize how easily out of control drinking can impact anyone. I highly recommend Raising the Bottom. I plan to buy copies for both of my adult daughters. Must read for moms!

    6. As someone who has had close friends who have struggled with alcohol addiction, this book holds a special place in my heart. If you or someone you love is struggling with alcoholism, I highly encourage you to pick up this book!

    7. Author, Lisa Boucher has done justice to women who indulge in our "drinking culture" as Lisa puts it. But many women don't understand that even enjoying a few glasses of wine or whatever your fav cocktail may be can become life interfering and making life unmanageable when they realize they may have crossed a line into problem drinking.Lisa does a fantastic job in making alcoholism serious business in a "no sugar coat" but fun and witty way. The stories are amazing and I love her writing style a [...]

    8. This book rambles, is not well written, and is like the stories section of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. While any book that is a female take on addiction is needed, it simply does not cover the range of addictions a woman can face, does not cover other addictions prevalent in women, such as the connection between alcoholism and eating disorders. The chapter on how the only people who can help addicts are addicts themselves is offensive to those working in the Addiction field who are not [...]

    9. My sister turned me on to this book after a recent break up with my GF. I'm not a big reader other than sports book but the break up came as a shock. She loved her wine. I doubt she would want to hear the truth about her drinking. We had a long-term relationship, but I see how alcohol was also part of it all. I understand so much more now about what happened. Boucher talked about how alcohol can lead to the demise of relationships. I wish I would've come across Raising the Bottom 10 or 12 years [...]
