    Independent, best self-care books for 2021
  • If you’ve found yourself reaching for the bottle more often than you’d like in recent months, this new release is for you. Millie Gooch has packed everything she’s learned into this practical, no-judgement book.

    Good Housekeeping
  • Listen to Millie. She is a tireless, funny, whip-smart teetotalin’ trailblazer.

    Catherine Gray, author of The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober
  • Gooch’s debut acts as a manual for sober and sober-curious females looking to improve their lives. The facts and figures she presents are astounding, but it’s her personal account – along with those from other members of the tee-total sisterhood – that delve deepest into the reasons for giving up alcohol.
