    read Drunk Mom – latinboyz4play.com This memoir was tough to get through while also being a very fast read It’s tough because Jowita relapses after her baby is born and it’s so hard to read about a parent who tries to balance her drinking with being a good mother because the deal with alcoholism is that yes sometimes you might be able to get drunk after the baby goes to sleep and nothing goes wrong but babies have needs 247 Jowita would breast feed every other day—she

Like the characters but because the author was me Maybe I didn t experience everything she did but her crazy thoughts and crazy language was me It was a reminder and sometimes I need just thata reminder The writing deserves 3 stars but the author as a human being barely deserves 1 star The story is sad and vividly told But I was actual Oh in case you re wondering I m not a cocaine addictI prefer to drinkYou found me in the middle of my story and I happened to have just found a baggie of cocaine in that bathroomBut honestly I prefer drinkingI prefer drinking to anything in the world sex food sleep My child my lover anythingI love to drink Sometimes I think No I am drinkIt s like my blood Even before I get it I can feel it in my veins I m not being poetic I can actually feel it in my veinsIt s gold It like little zaps of gold going through me charging me starting me pWhen I drink I fill with real gold and become Tricky one this When I first heard the buzz about this book I assumed it was being written by a woman in say her late 40s looking back on her life at a time when alcoholism and motherhood collided and written with hindsight reflection and a pretty clear indication of the kind of effect her actions had on her children So I was surprised to learn that it was actually written by Jowita Bydlowska a Toronto writer younger than me with barely two years of motherhood and one year of sobriety Babys Watch / A Hero of Her Own under her belt That s not to say that this isn t a well written book it is Bydlowska can write and if it weren t for my own kids and their needs I would have sat and read it in one go As it were I managed it to finish it in two days while neglecting my children at a level barely worth a mention It s an engaging story for sure It s also raw dirty messy and at times painful to read like any good addictio. Ka's memoir of her relapse into addiction is an extraordinary achievement the writing is raw and immediate It places you in the moment saddened and appalled but never able to look away With brutal honesty DRUNK MUM takess through the binges and blackouts the self deception and less successful attempts to deceive others the humiliations and extraordinary risk taking She shines a light on the endless hunger of wanting just one drink and one again while dealing with motherhood anxiety depression and rehab Advance Praise for Drunk Mom 'Jowita is matter of fact funny fearless and irreverent as she lifts the veil to chronicle what it means to be a young mother when both baby and mother have their own bottles the shame and the inner voices as well as the joy and relief this book is for anyone who has ever struggled to make it through a day' Laura Albert aka Jt LeRoy author of Sa.

Had to read this for my last grad course Apparently my prof is friends with the author I think that makes it a conflict of interests to teach it in this course Almost 3 months ago I finished reading this book since then we had countless discussions on it in my course and I even did a presentation on one of the chapters which received positive feedbackYet I am still torn about this book On the one had I am impressed and in awe of the author s courage to share this dark time in her life with the public On the other hand I am deeply conflicted about what to think regarding her shared experiences More than once I was very clear about my opinion of the stories she shared They bring about strong reactions from the reader which is always a possibility when such dark subject matters are addressed But I couldn t shake the feeling that I had judged the author that I had condemned her and labelled her a drunk and that was the end it of itThis memoir has not only forced me to Desire Island - The Niece uestion the blurred lines between the amount of detail an author should share but it has also put me in a ratherncomfortable position to re examine the role of the readerMy main point of critiue is the writing style For all the details of her Sweet Valentine uestionable behaviour she shares the author adopts a rather impersonal writing style by keeping the reader at an arm s length from her deeper private thoughts and emotions It is a contradiction that keeps battling it out throughout the entire book and makes for an interesting reading experienceOverall I am still very conflicted about this book I cannot say if I would recommend it It certainly makes for a complex study considering various points of viewElliotScribbles This book was very hard to read and I almost gavep on it many times Not because it was badly written or boring or I didn There are many alcoholic mothers Only one has told her storythree years after giving p alcohol Jowita Bydlowska found herself throwing back a glass of champagne like it was lemonade 'It's a special occasion' she said to her boyfriend And indeed it was It was a party celebrating the birth of their first child It also marked Jowita's immediate full blown return to alcoholism and all that entails for a new mother who is at first determined to keep her problem a secret Her trips to bottle shops stores are in and out missions Perhaps she's being paranoid but she thinks people tend to notice the stroller Walking home she stays behind buildings in alleyways taking discreet sips from a bottle she's stored in the nappy bag She know she's become a villain a mother who drinks; a mother who endangers her child She drinks to forget this And then the trouble really starts Jowita Bydlows.

review Drunk Mom

N tale or confessional And like the good ones there s some decent insight into her situation some very clear and powerful passages regarding the thought processes of a drunk the self loathing the excuses the nbreakable cycles the destructive thoughts and actions and the regrets that perpetuate the cycles But we don t get much in the way of Why We get a cursory glance into a complicated perhaps abusive relationship with her parents but only that We get a cursory glance into her adjustment period as an immigrant and we get a cursory glance into the nature of her relationships with other people including the relationships with her boyfriend She yells he sighs Only at the very end do we learn that he is not perfect either and her son despite them being at the centre of the chaos In fact my biggest criticism is that the Mom part of the Drunk Mom story feels superficial glossed over Bydlowska writes beautifully about the power of the first moments of motherhood and the transformative nature of motherhood but not often Besides the fact that she now pushes a stroller while teetering on heels drunk instead of leaning on someone else while teetering on heels drunk the baby feels like a prop an accessory We are assured time and again that the baby was always safe but I guess that s the problem with writing a book about being a drunk mom if she wrote about her interaction with the baby while she was a drunk mom we would probably see that there were many times that actually the baby wasn t safe and who s going to put that in print But I guess that comes back to my original misgivings about the story there hasn t been much time to see reflect and write safely about the real fallout from being a drunk mom That said I certainly hope there s no seuelI received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. Rah the Heart Is Deceitful Above All things and Harold's End 'Drunk Mom is a stunning harrowing read Why harrowing Not just because of the dramatic story of a new mother at the edge of her tether And not only because of Jowita Bydlowska's skill as a writer and the crisp original way she tells it What's most harrowing about Drunk Mom is that you can't stop reading it this the dark now told tale that lurks in the shadow of every seemingly normal family' Ian Brown author of the Boy in the Moon 'A brave brilliant and scathing self portrait Full of energy and insight If Frida Kahlo had been a writer she might have been compared to Jowita Bydlowska' Patricia Pearson author of A Brief History of Anxiety Yours and Mine 'Fearless and troubling and so very humane Bydlowska explodes the cutesy momoir genre You'll read it in one sitting' Katrina Onstad author of Everybody Has Everythin.
