When Rebecca Weller’s pounding, dehydrated head woke her at 3am, yet again, she stared at the ceiling, wondering why the hell she kept doing this to herself. 

At 39 years of age – and a Health Coach, no less – she knew better than to down several bottles of wine per week.  Her increasingly dysfunctional relationship with alcohol had to stop, but after decades of social drinking, she was terrified of what that might mean.

How could she live a joyful existence, without alcohol? How would she relax, socialise, or celebrate – without wine?

In sheer frustration, on a morning filled with regret and tears, she embarks on a 3-month sobriety experiment that becomes a quest for self-discovery, and ultimately, transforms her entire world.  

A Happier Hour is a heartfelt, moving, and inspiring story for anyone who has ever had to give up something they loved in order to get what they truly wanted.

    Loved this book! Coming from a home of alcoholics it was great to read the struggles one faces with alcohol. Being a daughter and now a mother I fight with mentally knowing I’m okay to have a drink and understanding that not everyone can say no after one. It was great to read as I feel I have a better understanding on what my parents go through. Thank you for having the courage to write this and taking that leap into sobriety! Amazing book!

    Such a life altering read.... all the wasted time spent trying to have “fun” and thinking alcohol needed to be a part of this... Thank you for making me realize there is so much more to this beautiful life then regret, shame and “happy hour”....
  • Wonderful!

    Hello, I'm a social worker in a county jail...this story speaks to people who are in your position.... I appreciate that. I'm stuck with how to counsel inmates recidivism all day long.....and possibly us elf "treating me" to a few glasses of wine at the end of the day..... Wish I knew a population of counselors who deal with subaStance abuse and question their own at the end of the day.... Thanks for letting me vent.... Teresa
