Audio: Can I Drink Again Later?

I recorded an audio (episode #141) for my longer, weekly sober podcast series. You’re familiar with the one-minute audios. These are longer, meatier.

I get this email all the time: “After 100 days sober, do you think I could drink again?” I have one such message in my inbox right now. And so here’s my answer – in audio format. There’s something in this audio for you today, too.

The full audio for this episode is 20 minutes long. Here’s a 2-3 minute preview:

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. This resonates with me. A couple of years ago I made it to day 109 (or so). It was my 60th birthday. I thought I could drink to celebrate and then just go back to where I was. That didn’t happen. I started again and faltered. Believe me when I tell you that you don’t want to be 60 years old and still going through this shit. Life is too short to go to day 1 again.

      1. Your story on here moved me. I keep thinking that I’ll do it some day but I’m just getting older and nothing is gonna change itself.

        Thanks for sharing this! It motivates me!

  1. Thank you. This is so spot on. I just completed 100 days, so today is day 101. I woke up this morning coming out of a bad dream– one of those seems so real bad dreams. I dreamt I was in a supermarket and came around the corner to a kiosk giving out free glasses of white wine. I grabbed one and glugged it down as I continued pushing the cart, only to realize what I had done as I was holding an empty glass. Horrified, I thought: Oh no, I have to start over on day one. But then I woke up and was flooded with relief that it was just a dream. So, yeah.

  2. Short preview but completely full of truths and such useful information. Especially since I am on day 1 today. Again. It doesn’t stop unless I stop it.

    Thanks Belle.
