Book Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 195 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. This is a valuable, cautionary, and powerfully-written tale about the dangers of drink. At 24 Zailckas gave up drinking after a decade of getting drunk, having blackouts, and experiencing brushes with comas, date rape, and suicide. This is the mortifyingly credible story ( The New York Times ) of her drunken girlhood. Garnering a vast amount of attention from young people, parents, and bookbuyers across the US, Smashed soon became a media sensation and a New York Times bestseller. Eye-opening and utterly gripping, Koren Zailckas story is that of thousands of girls like her who are not alcoholics - yet - but who routinely use alcohol as a shortcut to courage and a stand-in for good judgement. With one stiff sip of Southern Comfort at the age of 14, Zailckas is initiated into the world of drinking. From then on she drank faithfully and fanatically to such an extent she suffered stomach pumping on a number of occasions. In college her excess gave way to a pattern of self-poisoning that grew more and more destructive. At the age of 22 Zailckas woke up in an unfamiliar apartment with no clue of where she was or what had happened to her. Smashed is a sobering look at how Zailckas fell into this trap and what it took for her to realise she had to stop drinking. A must read for all parents and children who want to avoid the dangers of drink. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780143036470
