Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture
by Lisa Boucher, RN
Lisa is bringing audience awareness to the fact that people quarantined are feeling more and more disconnected, which causes them to turn to substances.
Moms who are expected to home to school & work are finding themselves more stressed-out than ever. People who may already have drinking problems are drinking more because they are alone and alcohol gets delivered to their homes with the click of a mouse or a tap of an app. Lastly, people in new recovery who don’t have a sober network may not even realize zoom meetings were an option and many have relapsed. Calls to The suicide hotlines have also increased significantly.
So, where do we go from here? In this Book, Lisa Boucher offers hope. Hope that any of those in your audience that may be struggling with alcohol and addiction can read this book and know that they’re not alone during these trying times. Within these pages, your audience will be able to examine and become aware of their own behaviors during this time, identify any problem areas, and stop any destructive patterns before they have a chance to take the audience from a place where they can stop to a place where they feel helpless to do so and feel they have no place to turn.
Here’s the thing… It’s not our fault. We live in a boozy culture, and the idea of women and wine has become entrenched.Is your book club really a “wine club”? Do you crave the release a drink can bring to cope with anxiety, parenthood, the pressures of being a mom, a wife/partner, a professional? In Raising the Bottom, mothers, daughters, health professionals, and young women share their stories of why they drank, how they stopped, and the joys and rewards of being present in their lives once they kicked alcohol to the curb.

“[Boucher] demonstrates that alcoholism is a disease that doesn’t discriminate by income level, education, or gender. Contrary to the thinking that women have to lose it all before making changes, she hopes that, by reading her book, women can recognize and deal with their potential alcoholism early on. Highly recommended.”―LibraryJournal (STARRED REVIEW)
Lisa Boucher a registered nurse. For the past twenty-eight years, she has worked with hundreds of women to overcome alcoholism, live better lives, and become better parents. Raising the Bottom is her fifth book. She was prompted to write raising the Bottom when she realized after twenty-plus years of working in hospitals, that doctors and traditional health care offer few solutions to women with addiction issues. She is the mother of twin sons and lives in Ohio with her husband.
