Wishful Drinking - Carrie Fisher - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Wishful Drinking:


Hi! My name is Carrie and I am an addict with a mental illness.

My favorite Carrie Fisher quote from the book:

"In my opinion, a problem derails your life and an inconvenience is not being able to get a nice seat on the un-derailed train."


Questions I pondered while reading Wishful Drinking:

If one in four people have a mental illness - why are they such a secret?

Doesn't everyone have at least one vice?

My review of Wishful Drinking:

It takes courage to put hats on your skeletons and invite them to dance.

Bonus points to Carrie for making the dance funny.

I really appreciate her work, even if she wasn't entirely sober.
