Audio: Embrace the Lifestyle

just recorded episode #83 for my sober podcast thingy based on an email that Helena sent me about moderation and about living as a sober person. She really highlights the nonsense we have in our head (which i’m now calling the Wolfie Radio Station, on the AM dial, it’s W-O-L-F, broadcasting bullshit, 24/7, morning, noon and night).

In this audio, I read her letter, and then give you my ideas. Of which I have many!

Below I’ve posted a 2 minute extract from audio.

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

  • Well, this saved me tonight! I was making dinner and thinking about white wine, chilled, delicious white wine to drink while I’m making dinner. I poured myself cold water from the fridge and that worked. I came upstairs to do some laundry and Wolfie followed me. He started making plans for the white wine and I for this upcoming weekend. I will be going out with family and staying with them for two days also. It will be lovely we can all have the white wine together. I’ll only have it when we’re out and not when we get back to the house. Then I laughed at him, oh Wolfie, you silly scumbag, you know I can’t do that! Then my mind clicked and a voice said, get thee to thy sober car immediately. I hoped into my car and drove over here to your site and this audio. I’ll stay here and with the doors locked and honk at you if he comes around again tonight.
