The Ultimate Quit Lit & Podcast List

Quit Lit is a genre of books dedicated to the subject of quitting alcohol and other drugs. There is nothing more helpful and heartwarming than learning from others who have either taken the same path that you are now starting on, or who are experts in this space.

Your toolkit for supporting yourself in sobriety will be added to with each book you read.
