team 100 now has 169 members …

Mr. Belle is 100 days today 🙂

When I asked him what was different between day 1 and now, he said he now realizes that booze is everywhere, whereas when he was still drinking he didn’t really notice. He also sleeps through the night now, and feels better in general. But he also admitted that he was mostly doing it for me, to support me. He figures it’s easier for me to stay sober if he’s not opening bottles of wine in front of me (true enough). I told him I thought he was both kind, and brave. He shrugged off both compliments, and sliced me some more apple… Then he said he wasn’t a good “cobaye” … and i’m like what’s that? The person who tests new toothpaste, he says. There’s a word for someone who submits themselves to random tests to see the results? Then I look it up in google translate. Guinea Pig.

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

  • Congrats, Mr Belle, you have chosen a good mate. Congrats, Belle, on the growth of Team 100-what a trip, huh !~!

  • Congrats to Mr. Belle for 100 days of loving his wife enough to give up booze! You are one lucky lady to have a hubby like that! 🙂

  • What a lovely Mr Belle you have there. Also, 169? Holy sobriety! How did this happen? It doesn’t seem like very long that we were thinking ‘What if Team 100 reached 100 people? Wouldn’t that be incredible.’ This all, you all, have far exceeded my wildest imaginings. Amazing.
