i haven’t done one of these blogs in awhile. What’s the reason for this post? Well, before I got sober, I lurked on a few sober blogs. Lurking is when you read but don’t comment, haven’t really figured out what to do next, are still checking things out 🙂 So here’s what i’m curious about.
- Post a comment with your number of days sober (or your soberversary date if you’re not a day-counter).
- To protect your anonymity, you can ALWAYS leave the name and email address blank in the comment form on my blog. I do not require people to give their details to post on my site.
- If you are a lurker, and you aren’t (yet) sober but you’re looking for inspiration, you can still post. And you can pick a date when you’d like to start your sober journey (i.e. in 5 days, or January 15th, or whatever). You can remain anonymous, too.
I also sometimes forget how far along in the sober journey we all are … so this will help me remember and help me celebrate with you.
Really, if you’re an anonymous lurker that’s totally fine! Just chime in with where you are : )
PS/ HERE’S MY GUT REFLEX: I have no proof of this and am only going on a gut feeling here, but if you are a lurker and still drinking, then by posting something anonymously, it’s like raising your hand and saying “OK, yes, i could use some support” and i think that makes a big difference in what happens next for you. Well, if you don’t believe me, you can try posting something and see what happens : )
** Note: most of my communications these days are going out by micro-email. You can add yourself to the email list here. Invitations to live calls, group events, photos, stuff — it’s all being sent by email. There was an email earlier today about cleaning the bathroom sober. If you’d like me to add you to the micro-email list, let me know 🙂
