Happy July 4th … an anti-wolfie audio

I’ve just recorded a special July 4th audio podcast for my podcast subscription thingy.

Someone asked me to record a message she could listen to when wolfie was breathing down her neck. I hope this does the job.

I mention “stay here” and “not today” and “every day forward…”

I have some advice on what to do if you’re on day 13 and you don’t magically feel better (yet).

And i talk about sober momentum.

I’m posting the entire audio here and it will be available for 48 hrs. Click below to listen:

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

  • Thanks so much for the pod cast.  Up north, my Son’s new girlfriend and my Granddaughter both said I should drink tonight because I’m so much fun sober, if I drink then I’m really fun.  It didn’t give me any inclination to drink, but this’d reinforced it.  Wolfie comes in some very clever disguises Belle:)

  • This is what I needed this weekend too, thank you Belle. It’s been frustrating bc I have so many ups and downs. Two days ago I wrote you an email reciting all the wonderful things that not drinking has brought to me. Last night, I had two hours of thoughts about going to get some wine so I could just check out for the evening. I don’t like the uncertainty-shakes moments, but I know I am learning how to FINALLY sit with uncomfortable feelings without trying to numb myself. It’s difficult work, and shakes grounds, but I am seeing the sun beaming through many times throughout my days now. Thank you for this reminder that I’m “OK” and things will be OK…I’m doing something right, day 27.
