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  and 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. we’re penpals for a whole year 🙂



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 am ready, willing and able to commit to the 100 Day Challenge @ 100%. Yesterday was a horrible day and I used wine to drown my sorrows. It did absolute nothing to help me feel better. It truly serves no purpose in my life. Even though it may be tough to learn how to live sober, I look forward to seeing what good things will come in the next 100 days.

  2. Here goes 13th febuary 2018 my last drink after many years of drinking two bottles of wine a night most nights home alone.
    Started reading the unexpected joy of being sober 14th feb 2018

  3. My last drink was on a Wednesday, it was February 6, 2018.

    This is Day 13 – if I counted right – and I’m not superstitious at all. No, that’s why I’m signing up today.

  4. Ugh I have successfully done the 100 days a couple of times but the longest duration without drinking for me was six months. That was a couple of years ago.

  5. Hi Belle, just finished reading the first year of your blog, and it has been inspiring for me. 29th January was my last drink so today is day 22, the most consecutive days for years 😊
    Thank you!

  6. My last drink was 17 February 2018. I have tried to stop drinking many times before but this time I am going to do it and I am 100 percent sure! Already feel better and more positive after only a couple of days so how am I going to feel after 100 days, cant wait to find out.

    Good luck to everyone else on this journey

  7. Hi!
    My last drink was 13th Feb. I’m taking the 100 day challenge and it was from reading ” The unexpected joy of being sober” that inspired me to do it.
