About the Book

When Rebecca Weller’s pounding, dehydrated head woke her at 3am, yet again, she stared at the ceiling, wondering why the hell she kept doing this to herself. At 39 years of age – and a Health Coach, no less – she knew better than to down several bottles of wine per week. 

Her increasingly dysfunctional relationship with alcohol had to stop, but after decades of social drinking, she was terrified of what that might mean. How could she live a joyful existence, without alcohol? How would she relax, socialise, or celebrate – without wine?

In sheer frustration, on a morning filled with regret and tears, she embarks on a 3-month sobriety experiment that becomes a quest for self-discovery, and ultimately, transforms her entire world.  

A Happier Hour is a heartfelt, moving, and inspiring story for anyone who has ever had to give up something they loved in order to get what they truly wanted.


What Readers are Saying
” Live Happy Hangover Free! I read this book in 2 days. It’s eye opening, motivating, and REAL! If you’ve ever wondered if a break from alcohol would be a good thing for you, this book is a great starting place to explore the issue. No judgement, no preaching, simply one woman’s story about willingness to get super honest about her behavior and brave enough to face her emotions champagne free. (Her program and insight is also what helped me break the 100 alcohol free mark!). ”
” I have NEVER read a book, cover-to-cover in one afternoon, but that’s what I did as soon as this book arrived at my door. Being a subscriber for over a year, I thought I knew all I needed to know about Bex and her story. Learning the details behind-the-scenes of HOW everything came together for her was truly inspiring. Parallels are sure to be drawn by the reader at various points. I recommend to anyone who feels they are just going through the motions of drinking and have a sneaking suspicion it’s no longer adding anything to their life! ”
” I could not wait for Rebecca Weller’s memoir to come out and it did not disappoint. If you have ever had just a glimmer that letting something go would be better for you than this book is for you. While I identified with Rebecca’s story in detail (and it gave me chills) this isn’t just another sober memoir. I am so happy to have gathered some strength from Rebecca’s story to continue to be my authentic self! ”
” Ive not yet read a book that has pushed me into “go” mode as this did. Always feeling like I was the only person with the same issues, Bex tells her story in a much relatable way. I laughed, I cried… it is truly inspiring and honest. Every story I kept thinking, “oh my gosh … that’s me!” After reading the book I was instantly motivated. I’m ready to do this! Will be joining her website group as well. Read it! ”
” Rebecca did an amazing job sharing her story in “A Happier Hour.” The book is very relatable for any woman who has been struggling with alcohol but doesn’t see herself as a typical alcoholic. From trying to moderate, to the wolf in your head egging you on, to the pure joy that comes when you wake up with no hangover…she shares it all. Give A Happier Hour a read, you won’t regret it! ”
” My new favourite recovery memoir. As an Australian woman in her late thirties, I can relate to Rebecca’s story so much. Bex is successful in every area of her life except one – controlling her drinking. From unexpected blackouts to hiding her drinking from loved ones, her love of alcohol and her identity as the life of the party is destroying her. And the worst part is the toll it takes on her self esteem – she finds it harder and harder to reconcile her role as a health coach with the way she obliterates herself on weekends. But then she has a series of breakthroughs and chooses to try a “sober experiment” that leads her to all the answers she’s been seeking. To freedom. Bex’s positivity and uplifting messages have convinced me that I too can pursue a sober life and be happier than I ever imagined. And for this, I can’t thank her enough. ”
” I saw this book by chance on a Tuesday night. Last Tuesday night. I read the book in one sitting- enthralled. It was like Bex was telling my fourtune: past and present. After I finished the book I spent hours trolling the internet in search of more inspiration and registered on her website. I have not had a drink since that fateful Tuesday. I am jumping out of my glowing skin, (also feeling unsure and insecure in myself). I am absolutely flawed by the parallel universe of sobriety that exists!!! and want to be a part of that.
Without Bex to kick start and support my journey, I am sure it would have not even started. ”
” I absolutely loved this book! Bex has an honest, refreshing voice and it was wonderful to read her story. I’ve been sober for years and this reenergized me, made me think again about why I drank in the first place, and how wonderful it is to be sober. I would recommend this book to any woman struggling with drinking! ”
” Loved Bex Weller’s relatable account of letting go of her PR party girl lifestyle and identity to find a life she truly loved. A tale so many of us can relate to – any woman who has had one too many hangovers and knows deep down the party is over can take heart and inspiration in the proof that choosing to kick out the wine might just be the key to more than you ever imagined to be possible – wonderful ! ”
” Happier Indeed! Absolutely loved this book! I was trolling through the kindle book selections and came across a happier hour. With no intention of giving up my celebratory champagne I read her story and began to see myself in Bex. This is an honest story that will absolutely make you rethink your drink. I never realized I was missing out on the joy of clarity, energy and true connection until I read her story!!! ”
