About this book:

From Whiskey to Water is the no-holds-barred memoir by one of South Africa's most loved radio talk show hosts, Sam Cowen. Having kept her alcohol addiction well away from the public eye for over 14 years, in this tell-all tale, Sam finds the courage to talk about her struggle with her addiction to whiskey, food and finally to a passion that saved her life - marathon swimming. Told in her characteristically hilarious dead-pan style, the book was a top seller when it was published in 2015.   "So this is a book on how I stopped drinking? No it’s not. It’s how I stopped drinking, started eating, became clinically severely obese, stopped eating(everything that wasn’t nailed down) and swam my way to freedom. No it’s not. It’s actually about addiction and learning and sadness and anxiety and love and drive. It’s about channeling the unchangeable into the miraculous. It’s about dragons and learning how to put them to sleep when you can’t slay them."
