Audio: Sober Passions Part 1

Yesterday afternoon I recorded a special live call about Sober Passions for my audio podcast subscription thingy.

My intent was to make a lovely little podcast, and I thought I’d answer a few questions and it’d last about 20-25 minutes…

Ha! The full audio is more like 45 minutes, and thanks to the live guests, there is some really great questions, some breakthroughs, and some a-ha moments (for me!).

We talk about the clarinet, sobriety insurance, and I share some of my catering experiences and how baking relates to my sobriety.

So I’ve divided up the long audio into chunks, and today I’ve prepared Part 1 for subscribers. And I thought I’d post a 2-minute extract from Part 1 here.

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

  • Interesting. Only listened to the sample, but maybe that helps to explain some of the feelings, or lack of feelings, I am having regarding my drinking. Have I grasped my sober passion already which is making this easier?? Or, again, am I simply lying to myself and this will creep up on my and bite me in the ass when I least expect it.

  • Yay for 100 days! SOBRIETY ROCKS 😀 Thanks for everything you do Belle. I am a better person today because of your encouragement, faith and support! Bless you 🙂
