New Zealander Lotta Dann was in trouble. Her fun drinking habit had slowly morphed into an obsessive hunger for wine. One bottle a night was never quite enough.
When she tried to cut down, she found it nearly impossible to have an alcohol-free day. Everyone around could see her drinking, but no one realised what a serious problem it was. She was high-functioning, fun-loving Lotta, not some messy, hopeless drunk.
What’s a girl to do when her beloved wine becomes the enemy? Here’s what Lotta did.
She stopped drinking and secretly started a blog that charted the highs and lows of learning to live without alcohol.
Mrs D was anonymous, honest and, as Lotta would discover, surrounded by people who would help her on her journey, and whom she could help in return.
