Binge! is a novel about therapy. It will take you into the world of the heavy-drinker and the struggle to overcome an ingrained alcohol habit that is rooted in childhood trauma.
Andy is a man troubled by his past. Brought up by an aunt and uncle following the deaths of his parents, he is seeking to address his binge-drinking and the effect it is having on his life. However, he was not the only one affected by the murder he witnessed in childhood. His older brother, Terry, regularly drinks himself into oblivion, and spends much of his time in ‘alcohol blackout’. It all leads to tragedy, as heavy drinking so often does.
Graham (Andy’s person-centred therapist) is the man destined to share Andy’s emotional and psychological roller-coaster journey. Can he help Andy makes sense of what is happening to him? Can he help him break free of his past, and alcohol’s grip on his present? The characters have a reality that will haunt you and leave you with a deeper understanding of the human struggle to resolve heavy drinking.
