Publisher's Summary

Sober Stick Figure is a memoir from stand-up comedian Amber Tozer, chronicling her life as an alcoholic - starting with her first drink at the age of seven - and her eventual recovery. Amber writes about the crazy and harsh truths of being raised by alcoholics, becoming one herself, stagnating in denial for years, and finally getting sober.
As a teenager Amber is an overachieving student athlete who copes with her family's alcoholic tragedies by focusing on her achievements. It quickly takes a funny and dark turn when she starts to experiment with booze and ignores the warning signs of alcoholism. Through blackouts, cringe-worthy embarrassments, and pounding hangovers, she convinces herself that she "just likes to party". She leaves her hometown of Pueblo, Colorado, to follow her dreams and ends up in New York City, spending lots of time binge drinking, passing out on trains, and telling jokes onstage. She then moves to Los Angeles, thinking sunshine and show business will save her.
Eventually hitting rock bottom, she has a moment of clarity and knows she has to stop drinking. It's now been seven years since that last drink, and she's ready to tell her story. Sober Stick Figure is adventurous, hilarious, sad, sweet, tragic - and ultimately inspiring.

Waiting for the punch line.......

Thought it was slow and the reader seemed flat. It seemed to go on and on... same story different day. I thought since she was a comic that there might be some humor... Alcoholism really is not funny. Glad she told her story but it was not my favorite read.
