Overview
There Is Life After Martinis tells a poignant story of a woman's journey from the crippling shackles of alcoholism to a joyful life in sobriety. Like many others, Glenda was raised in a chaotic home. The damage done in childhood led to a life of tension, fear and learned unhealthy behaviors. Encouraged by mom and dad, she started drinking in her teens. For way too long, she insisted life as "party girl" was what she wanted, right up until her arrest for drunken driving. Glenda shares colorful, sometimes humorous stories of life in her 20's living in Hawaii. Her love of music, especially Elvis Presley's, provided refuge in childhood and remains a constant today. In 1982, Glenda got sober, often stating it was the hardest thing she ever did. She shares this sentiment each time she volunteers at a drug treatment program at Mercy hospital in Portland, Maine where she worked for 20 years. She credits Alcoholics Anonymous for helping her stay sober as it has for millions of others. The book's final chapter offers an inspiring, almost "fairy tale" story of falling in love late in life to a bagpiper whose music touches her soul, and marrying in the Highlands of Scotland. Relating her gratitude enjoying long-term recovery, the final pages are filled with a sunlight-bright message of hope. As Dr. Jane Boyer, who practices addiction medicine declares, "My patients often ask me to recommend a book they can relate to. I've found it now. This book is a treasure."
