The book Blackout is different from other books about recovering alcoholics. This book is not just for people who are recovering from alcoholism it is also for people who know alcoholics. Sarah explains how alcohol was her way for dealing with life’s problems. This caused her to grow up without actually learning how to deal with problems on her own. She views alcohol as a crutch that prevented her from dealing with emotional and spiritual issues. When a person reads Blackout they are able to get an idea into what it was like to live life in such a way. This book is also unique because it looks at alcoholism from the perspective of a woman. Sarah explains how society views women alcoholics different from men alcoholics. There are many things that an alcoholic woman has to deal with that an alcoholic man does not have to deal with including rape. Many of these issues have not been explored and Sarah is one of the first people to bring it to the attention of the public. Sarah makes sure that she is accountable and responsible for everything that happened in her life and she does not blame her situation on anyone else.
