Audio: Day 11

This is audio #115 for my weekly sober podcast thingy.

What’s it like to be on Day 11 sober. Is it exciting, or scary, or weird, or all of these emotions combined. What’s it like to be in the first month sober. First party, first events, all new.

What’s it like to learn it all from scratch, and be excited and terrified at the same time.

And what would you like to hear if you were on Day 11?

This morning I randomly spoke with one of the 2600 people on my mailing list.

I’d like you to meet Taylor. She’s on day 11.

The full audio podcast runs for about 37 minutes and is on the podcast page for subscribers. Here’s an extract. It’s the first 3 minutes from the audio.

Comment from podcast subscriber ChefStarr: “BTW – I loved loved LOVED the podcast with the phone call with Taylor. Listening to you talk her through the Halloween party that she was nervous about hosting sober. I hope she finds what we know — that being drunk only adds to the stress of being a hostess, instead of helping. But I loved how you talked to her; you were kind and funny and compassionate. And boy howdy, it brought back vivid memories of how early sobriety felt. I really enjoy listening to your podcasts, but this one was one of my favorites.”



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
