Saturday Want Ad

Did you just roll out of bed after a hellish night and you feel like a bag of shit?

Are you literally, right now at 6:00 am on a Saturday morning, searching online for sober help?

Yes, you. Yes I can see you through the computer screen.

WANTED

There’s a small bunch of us. We’re doing 100 days sober. Yes, days in a row.

Benefits include great sleep, return of self-esteem, elimination of hangovers. Lots of support. Save $400 to $1000 a month by not drinking. Limited quantities available.

And this week, the first 9 people who sign up will receive a fast-action bonus: SECRET HOMEWORK to help with the first few days.

[MG writes: YES – the [secret homework] is pure brilliance.  The whole *** is amazing.  Why didn’t I ever think about that? …  I am quickly gaining resolve and determination as we speak.  I was sad and depressed a few days ago, but I’m not any longer.  I’m proud of myself.”] –yes, this is an actual email 🙂

Double your money back guarantee. Operators are standing by.

PS.

Are you the type to feel rebellious, and say “Why can’t I drink? Other people can drink. I feel so pissed off that I have to give up drinking. I should be ALLOWED…”

Is that you?  (yeah, me too!)

Well, the pouting, the “why can’t I drink,” comes from focusing on not being ABLE to.
But when you flip it on its head, and you turn it into a decision, then you get to say:

“I don’t drink because it’s not good for me.
I don’t do cocaine either.
There’s a whole list of things I don’t ingest
just because other people do.
I do what’s best for me.
I also don’t drive without a seatbelt
and I don’t walk in dog shit.
I am taking care of me.”

[Team 100 has 230 people in it. You can join now — no matter what day of sobriety you’re on.]

What, you want more?

How about this:

Allie (day 38):This is the longest I’ve been sober in awhile … in the last 3 weeks, I managed a 2 week sober vacation, ran a 5K, avoided numerous drunk fights with fiancé, didn’t embarrass myself once, felt proud of myself, had hope and lots more stuff I can’t think of right now … I’m planning a trip for the end of October with all of my savings!

You can sign up for the 100 challenge here.

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. OMG 34 days ago you WERE in my computer and in my head (scary!!) that’s exactly how I felt and what I did. I think it was day 2 when I found you and the 100 day challenge. I don’t think I could have gotten this far without it and you. Your encouragement has been a life line to sobriety. Thank you.
    Sign up people you have misery and shame to lose and clear mind and heart to gain.

  2. Belle-

    I’ve been following but not commenting much because there wasn’t anything I could add to your brilliant posts. But I want you to know that I’ve been supporting you, referring people to you and copying you (I’ve got a Whole 30 challenge going and I’ve suggested to a friend that she look into doing what you’re doing in a private practice).

    Just wanted you to know that you have support out here in the blogosphere! You’re doing such a wonderful thing.

  3. Brilliant post Belle! I’m getting close to my 100 days and your constant support is what brought me to this place and will keep me going. Not worrying about day 101 and beyond. This commitment is for life…my life!

  4. This is a deal with incredible value!!! I am on day 40 and feel better than I have in years! I’m curious about this secret homework…
