“I want more”

from me:

The first sober workshop / class / thingy is ready, it’s on a new website, set up this morning, called “Fuck You Wolfie” (well of course that’s what the site should be called)!


And if you hate the site name, you can use www.SoberWorkSoberPlay.com which goes to the same place, but is perhaps slightly more suitable for link sharing.

I’m looking for a very small number of beta testers available next week. You can read more about the new Sober Jumpstart class here.

Roxanne celebrates 100 days:

Roxanne:  I did it!  I met the challenge you set before me!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I am watching the sunrise on my back deck on this lovely, summer morning.  My coffee is slowly bringing me to life.  Birds are singing; squirrels scurrying. I know this sounds cheesy, but I honestly feel like I have experienced a re-birth.

I now realize that I have been sleep-walking through my life and really missing out on all it places before me; the good, the bad, and the ugly.  What a waste of time to be drinking through this life we are given; to drink is to squander the days I have.

Since I have given up alcohol I have really stepped up my volunteer work and I love it.  I am becoming much more involved in my community and now realize that when I was drinking I was isolating myself; cutting myself off from everything.  What a silly thing for me to do!  … I wake up each day rested and looking healthier; what a gift you have given me by coming up with the 100 Day Challenge.  The truly brilliant thing is that now that I know what it feels like to be sober for 100 days and now that I see the far-reaching benefits I want more of it.


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

  • You’re doing the best thing, Belle, I love your initiative and your drive and all these people who are benefiting from your wisdom are loving it too. Rock on.

  • Congratulations Roxanne! I can’t wait to make 100 days myself. Belle I think this class is a great idea!

  • Hooray, Roxanne! Congrats on 100 days! I had the exact same thought last night, how sad it was to have wasted so much time, drinking and absent from the world. It’s good for me to hear someone else acknowledging how alcohol isolates us. Good luck back in the world.

  • I love the idea for this class! Although I am glad that am past my first 30 days of sobriety, I think this would have helped me tremendously in the beginning. I can’t wait to hear how it goes!
