The Best Quit Lit Books For Women Going Alcohol Free

The best quit lit sobriety books for women who are ready to stop drinking and go alcohol-free.

What’s the definition of ‘Quit Lit’?

Quit Lit is a whole genre of books that you might not have ever heard about if you’re not a woman who has a complicated relationship with alcohol. Quit Lit books are books about drinking, quitting drinking, getting sober and life without alcohol. There are novels and memoirs, essays, fiction, and how to be sober guides. They are deep and soulful, entertaining and honest, eye opening, hysterically funny, raw and hopeful. Quit lit books were a lifeline to me in early sobriety. 

Some of the most famous Quit Lit books include Drinking a Love Story by Caroline Knapp, Carry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life by Glennon Doyle, Quit Like A Woman by Holly Whitaker, The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober by Catherine Gray, Tired of Thinking About Drinking: Take My 100-Day Sober Challenge by Belle Robertson, The Sober Diaries: How One Woman Stopped Drinking and Started Living by Clare Pooley, We are the Luckiest: The Surprising Magic of Sober Life by Laura McKowen, This Naked Mind: Control Alcohol, Find Freedom, Discover Happiness & Change Your Life by Annie Grace, Kick the Drink Easily by Jason Vale, Alcohol Explained by William Porter, Easy Way for Women to Quit Drinking by Allen Carr and Blackout by Sarah Hepola.

In this episode, I want to share not only my favorites but the voices of other women and the books that have inspired them and helped them along the path of re-evaluating their relationship with alcohol. 

If you’re constantly surrounded by messages that drinking is important and glamorous, sophisticated and fun, quit lit sobriety books will be a lifeline.

  • They’ll give you a glimpse into what your  life could look like without alcohol. 
  • These voices, of women who have been where you are, will remind you that you’re not alone. 
  • They’ll whisper to you when you are worried about your drinking. They won’t let you bury your head in the sand and tell yourself that  how you’re feeling was no big deal. 
  • They’ll give you hope that life will be better without alcohol.
