I think our brain gets fucked up about the idea of treats [video] April 13, 2014April 13, 2014 Belle micro posts, the good sober life, video Happy Sunday, i was having some fun and made a new video for you. Belle 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
Great video… treats are so easy to forget for me! Especially useful after a social weekend where it’s becoming more normal to be sober now… I still get a low Monday, and treats are needed to say “well done, you’re sober, here’s your treat”.
Reblogged this on Tiree Diary.
This was my first video. Nice to here your voice belle. Thank u for making it iPhone friendly for me. Good thoughts on treats. I never really know what day I’m on so I forget to reward or give myself a treat. I’m still feeling the hurt and shame from my last drunk nite. Aweful. But I’m on day 8… Went to a small renewing of vows and dinner last night where everyone was drinking. I had 2 cokes – regular not diet an my treat and it worked. I want to reach the 100 days. And beyond. I’ve been reading Ur blog on and off for the last 7 months while I drink and stop and drink again. So when I got to chat oine withy today. It made me tear up. U r real and I am real and sober is real.
sober is definitely real 🙂 glad you’re here.
Lol lipstick ( if your a girl). Keep up the good awesome work Belle <3 While watching I realized, before I got sober I was trying to get the treats while still drinking as a distraction, like magazines (that never got read), recipe ingredients for special dishes ( that never got cooked), preparing for manicure or pedicure ( that didnt get polished). I was half assing it to fool myself that I could drink and still enjoy life. Unfortunately or fortunate in irony it didnt work~ INEEDOFGRACE
Happy Sunday 🙂
I have three bracelets, a necklace, fuzzy socks and yummy tea (ate everything else) to remind me that I’m sober and I’m worth it. Every. Single. Sober. Day.
I like the video! Great reminder about treats. I’m loving my “Stay Here” Day 50 treat (wearing it every day) and am looking forward to buying myself a “Not Today” on Day 100 in about a month. Sober today and sober last night at a work party. I drank a non-alcoholic beer (I checked – 0% alcohol). Those seem to satisfy me in bar situations. School psychologist (who is a bit of a lush) tried like hell to get me to have “just a taste” of her lemon drop martini because “one sip won’t kill” me, but I smiled and said I was on Day 65 of my no drinking health challenge and planned to stick with it. I did smell it and it smelled nice, like lemons, like maybe I’d like to put a fresh lemon wedge in my diet tonic water. But I didn’t notice the vodka smell and didn’t have a sudden urge to have a drink. Bought a fancy bottle of organic ginger ale (“with hints of cardamom and cayenne”) to serve in champagne glasses at a brunch today and loved it! Good thing to take to my next party. Have a good week! xo Hank
