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.

Very honest and moving!
Amber Tozer is brutally honest in her memoir about her life with depression and alcohol addiction. I appreciate the courage and strength it must have taken to tell her story. I believe her book will provide much hope to the millions of people still suffering in the world today. It was relatable and very moving! Thank you for sharing, Amber!
