“Wine hath drowned more men (and women) than the sea”—Thomas Fuller, English clergyman and historian (1608 – 1661). And all this notwithstanding the fact that oceans cover just over 70% of the earth’s surface. In this captivating and illuminating exposition, Ann Njeri Mathu systematically recounts her odyssey from a full-time alcoholic to a teetotaller. What began as an innocuous sipping of traditional liquor, muratina, in the company of her father nearly ruined her persona and career. What’s more, her analysis of alcohol and alcoholism is both comprehensive and self-explanatory. Alcoholism is a disease that does not choose whom to attack. As you read the book you get the all-important good news that the war against alcoholism can be won. For 20 odd years, Njeri was at the bottommost of the deepest and darkest pit that alcoholism could offer. It was through her own admission and necessary help that she managed to free herself from the predicament. She has not tasted alcohol since 2005 and vows there’s no turning back. Sober Again is recommended to all youths and adults, given alcoholism is a disease that afflicts and or affects us. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
