Audio: No More U-Turns

new audio recorded for my audio podcast subscription thingy.

Interesting how the more i’m unplugged from responding to information, the more content I create. no shit sherlock. god i’m such a slow learner.

so yes, i recorded another podcast today. this one was recorded outside at the park on the hand-held device. this one is about doing a u-turn … we go out into the sober world, and then if we have a drink, we go back and have to begin again.

Thanks to Lucy for the link to the sober U-Turn video

And I mention the sewer blog post.

Below you’ll find the entire 11 minute podcast; i’ll leave it posted here for 48 hrs.

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

  • I told my husband he needs to support me by refusing to buy me alcohol, even if I beg. no more relapses. I liked being sober . Thank you.

  • Fantastic subject, Belle. I’ve certainly had my share of past sober U-turns and also have experience with going forward, but obviously I ultimately U-turned and ended up here, which is a blessing. I never thought of how U-turns keep us stuck. I can imagine a cartoon car going round and round and round and never getting anywhere. I want to get somewhere! Somewhere far from Wolfie and his gang. Love the part about the boy and his ball. I have long believed that if as adults we continue to view and observe the world around us through the eyes of a child, we will continue to be amazed and grow immensely without conscious effort (in essence, no struggle, just acceptance that things are what they are).

    Thanks for another great audio.

    Love and Peace, Zelda

  • I so needed this today. Listened with a lump in my throat. Especially liked the ending. I think I’m going to go look for some kids playing and watch them too…”a NO U-turn message.” Thank you!

  • Great podcast! This is so true. I have been u turning for years. Two steps forward, four steps back is how it has felt. I don’t want to go back to where I was EVER. Thank you soooo much for this wisdom you share! You, Belle, are a great blessing in my life. Xoxox Miss M
