LIFE WITHOUT BOOZE, $2, 4” x 6”, copied, 14 pgs.

This is a pretty short zine, but it covers some important material: an addict’s recovery. Taryn has some powerful things to say about her six years without alcohol and how it’s changed her life in a positive way. But it hasn’t always been easy for her. However, with time comes the ability to reflect on how she has grown and become a better person. What’s remarkable about Life without Booze is how those who haven’t had problems with alcohol can also gather insight from Taryn. It was wonderful to read someone else write that we have more control in our lives than we might know, that what’s especially important is how we react to our challenges. This is a powerful punch of reality that deserves more than one read. Recommended. Life without Booze is available on Taryn’s Etsy shop: ladyteeth.etsy.com. –Kurt Morris (Taryn Hipp, PO Box 542, Hilltown, PA 18927)
