As seen in the news ...
I was tired of thinking about drinking ...
Belle Robertson, Sober Girl
Are you “Tired of Thinking About Drinking?” You’re not alone. My name is Belle, and I am sober. I originally created this blog to document my own journey to sobriety (the sucky parts and the glow-in-the-dark realizations). Along the way, I’ve gathered some friends, and now it’s so much more than just a blog. It’s a community gathering place for the exchange of ideas. What you’ll find here (hopefully!) is a new kind of sober resource, with a personal touch that you won’t find on other “resource” sites. If this is your first time visiting, I’ve made up a little roadmap for you, that might be helpful:
To get to know me a bit, here are a couple of links that summarize my ideas on being sober:
I’ve created an audio coaching & sober penpal support program, especially to help deal with the first bit of sobriety: how to pick a replacement drink, what to tell people (and when), how to deal with the idea of ‘forever’, how to deal with overwhelm, what does relapse mean. You can learn more here.
You can read a collection of my blog posts in chronological order, so you can see where I was on day 18 and see if it’s like where you are!
