Thought I’d share an audio clip with you today.
A couple of weeks ago I recorded a live call about support and the different ways we can get it. Why we resist. How to identify wolfie. The whole call lasted over an hour, and I’ve been sharing it with weekly podcast subscribers.
And here for you now is a 2.25 minute extract from the second part of the group call. It talks about support – how we like to get by with less than we need. I compare being sober to training for a marathon.
Please leave a comment after you listen to the extract … so that i know you’re out there.

The podcast was great! Thank you
Now I have listened to a bit of this before and I have to say it really spoke to me. Since hearing it I’ve not only subscribed to this (excellent) blog, started my own, joined two online support sites, read blogs, contemplated speaking to my Dr and lots of other ‘stuff’ I’d never have wrapped myself up in to try and GET SOBER than I’ve ever done before. Its not easy, but I’m layering up with as much as I can and keeping with the busy find out about sober stuff. It struck me the other night when I was out celebrating my anniversary with my husband in a remote inn. Half the people in this room are NOT drinking. At least half. I’d never have thought that before, I’d either be glugging down my glass of wine to make room for the next or angry I couldn’t drink if I was driving.
Thanks Belle – the audio is absolutely right. I lost count of the number of days I woke up saying, ‘Never again’ and meaning it … and then drank again that night. One of the things that made Day 89 achieveable is the amount of support I’ve accepted I needed and plugged into.
