What’s the reason for this post? Well, before I got sober, I lurked on a few sober blogs. Lurking is when you read but don’t comment, haven’t really figured out what to do next, are still checking things out 🙂 So here’s what i’m curious about.
- Post a comment with your number of days sober (or your sober anniversary date if you’re not a day-counter).
- If you are sober and would like to be anonymous, you can tell me how many days sober you are. To protect your anonymity, you can ALWAYS leave the name and email address blank in the comment form. I do not require people to give their details to post on my site.
- If you are a lurker, and you aren’t (yet) sober but you’re looking for inspiration, you can still post. And you can pick a date when you’d like to start your sober journey (i.e. in 5 days, or December 26th, or whatever). You can remain anonymous, too.
I also sometimes forget how far along in the sober journey we all are … so this will help me remember and help me celebrate with you.
Really, if you’re an anonymous lurker that’s totally fine! Just chime in with where you are : )
PS/ HERE’S MY GUT REFLEX: I have no proof of this and am only going on a gut feeling here, but if you are a lurker and still drinking, then by posting something anonymously, it’s like raising your hand and saying “OK, yes, i could use some support” and i think that makes a big difference in what happens next for you. Well, if you don’t believe me, you can try posting something and see what happens : )
