Would you like to do the 100 day sober challenge?

Hi there.

  1. Would you like to do the 100 Sober Challenge?
    Here’s the pledge:
    “I will not drink for 100 days.  No matter what.  I can cry, but I will not drink.  I can go to bed or go home early. I might feel distressed … but I will not drink.  Bad things might happen, but I will not drink.  Incredibly shitty things may happen to someone around me, or my neighbour, or my friend’s friend’s grandmother.  But there will be no booze.  Funerals? Weddings? Amputation?  I’m not drinking for 100 days no matter what happens … No matter what.”
  2. Make a note of the date of your last drink and post a comment here to let us know.
  3. Read the sober blogs (mine and others) every day. Become involved. Post comments on the blogs. The more you reach out, the more sober tools you add, the easier you’ll find it.
  4. Sign up to get daily sober motivation here.
  5. If you’d like to have a sober penpal (how cool, can’t wait to get to know you!), then sign up for the Sober Jumpstart class. There are three versions of the class — short, audio only, and long. All three versions come with a free sober penpal (me!). You can email me every single day, ask questions, rant, whine, and get cheerleading. I answer every email I receive. And yes, we remain sober penpals after the class is over. For as long as you’d like. For years.


(NOTE: If you HAVE signed up to do the challenge before, then you have a spot and a member number already. And we’re penpals already. Your spot is here. Just email me to restart or to tell me how you’re doing.)


I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  1. I’m on Day 28 and hanging in there. I really, really wanted a drink or 10 on Friday after scattering a dear friend’s ashes out over the Mediterranean Sea. My friend didn’t drink and she would approve of my taking the 100 day challenge. Anyhow I prayed hard and made myself get some good food, watch a good film [Manchester by the Sea] and grab an early night! Somehow I survived and the feeling on Saturday morning at having ‘overcome’ was fantastic.I could remember the entire film and everything! Have no idea where I go from 100 hundred days but I’m determined to get there and the support online really, really helps. Have a great Monday everybody!

  2. Today is day #1. I’ve definitely hit rock bottom. I am scared of being alive in my own home. I am hiding from that beast who is making me feel this way and my hiding spot is the bottom of the chardonnay bottle. Today this all changes. I need to take care of myself just the way ive taken care of the beast who is now happy and sober and has left me in pieces. Of course I hold myself accountable, I am the only one opening that bottle, pouring that wine and allowing myself total absorption of that liquor. Today at 48 I will reintroduce myself to myself.

  3. Day one of 100 today. In fact my new password at work is Belle 100. I have purchased the triple pack of your book and will be listening to the audio until the physical book arrives. Good luck to me and everyone doing the challenge 😀
