Recover. Rinse. Repeat.

Dana Bowman can't escape the lure of perfectionism--like so many people today--trying to be a flawless wife, mother, and person in recovery. When Dana experiences a short-lived relapse during the Christmas holiday, she has the startling realization that recovery is not only about the alcohol. In this funny and revealing follow-up to Bottled, Dana reflects on how we live in a society of excess, always pushing ourselves to do it all. However, it doesn't take her long to realize that self-care and getting over herself is the key to happiness.
