About the Author
Edmund Tirbutt, a multi-award winning journalist and health insurance consultant, has been teetotal for over 24 years after overcoming a serious drink problem. Helen Tirbutt, a communications and change management consultant, has been teetotal for five years after giving up alcohol for lifestyle reasons.
Prior to writing either this book or their previous market-leading title Beat the Booze (Harriman House 2008), the authors knew numerous people with drink problems. Some they managed to help, others they didn't. If they'd had the knowledge in those days that they have now, they feel the outcomes for those they couldn’t help may have been very different.
These life experiences have given them a passionate desire to help other problem drinkers and their friends, families and work colleagues.
