I’m about to take off for a 24-hour mini vacation later today, but look … it’s February! It’s time to update my lovely Curious post. Some newly sober people have gotten their start right here. You can too. Or you can just watch and see what happens. There is a lot of support in the sober blogging world. You’ll see 🙂
What’s the reason for this post?
i lurked on a few sober blogs before I quit drinking July 1st. So here’s what i’m curious about.
- Post a comment with your number of days sober (or your sober anniversary date if you’re not a day-counter).
- If you are an anonymous lurker, and you’re sober, you can just put Sober as your name, and then use a fake email as your email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) – tell me how many days sober. You can remain anonymous of course.
- If you are a lurker, and you aren’t (yet) sober but you’re looking for inspiration, you can put Hoping as your name (or whatever), and then enter the email address (email@example.com). And you can pick a date when you’d like to start your sober journey (i.e. in 5 days, or February 15th, or whatever). You can remain anonymous, too.
I also sometimes forget how far along in the sober journey some of you are … so this will help me remember and help me celebrate with you.
Really, if you’re an anonymous lurker that’s totally fine! Just chime in with where you are : )
PS/ HERE’S MY GUT REFLEX: I have no proof of this and am only going on a gut feeling here, but if you are a lurker and still drinking, then by posting something anonymously, it’s like raising your hand and saying “ok, yes, i could use some support” and i think that makes a big difference in what happens next for you. Well, if you don’t believe me, you can try posting something and see what happens : )
