A Nice Girl Like Me book. She is also a reformed alcoholic

A Nice Girl Like Me book. Rosie Boycott is a well-known journalist. She is also a reformed alcoholic. This is the story of how a nice girl like her made it from the top to the bottom - and back again - during the wild and fragmented 1970s.

Rosie Boycott wasn't a typical 1960's Cheltenham Ladies College girl. By the age of 21 she had co-founded the feminist magazine Spare Riband the feminist publishing house Virago, whilst experimenting with drugs, sex and booze. But she wanted more: more experience, more travel, more passion. An epic motorcycle trip through Asia with her boyfriend John Steinbeck Jr. ended in a Thai jail. But drugs weren't her real problem. Alcohol was. Drinking seemed to defeat the demons in her psyche - until it became clear that drinking was her biggest demon of all. How had a nice country girl.

The books was written in 1983 and a postscript dated from 2009 gives some details of her subsequent life, including two times when she relapsed back into drinking (once it would seem at a stressful event; and another time in 2001 after becoming unemployed). A Nice Girl Like Me - Rosie Boycott.

Rosie Boycott wasn't a typical 1960's Cheltenham Ladies College girl. By the age of 21 she had co-founded the feminist magazine Spare Riband the feminist publishing house Virago, whilst experimenting with drugs, sex and booze. But she wanted more: more experience, more travel, more passion. An epic motorcycle trip through Asia with her boyfriend John Steinbeck Jr. ended in a Thai jail. But drugs weren't her real problem. Alcohol was. Drinking seemed to defeat the demons in her psyche - until it became clear that drinking was her biggest demon of all. How had a nice country girl turned into a drunk? Now a well-known journalist, ex-newspaper editor and chairman of the London Food Board, Rosie made it from the top to the bottom and back again. In this account of her life, she never shirks from the truth about herself - and in her honesty she gives hope to other women with addictions, addressing the hellish predicament of the alcoholic woman with passion and candour.
