This is audio #117 for my monthly sober podcast.
Turns out that motivation needs to be applied daily. Who knew? All the things we do to be sober, our sober supports — we think other people are magically getting along without boosts to their energy. And we’re wrong 🙂
This audio was recorded in front of a live audience. So it’s longer than usual, a double episode, 30+ minutes long.
Comments from the chat:
DJ56 says: “Thought there was something wrong with ME when the gas tank was empty…”
Rabbit: “Thanks Belle, excellent stuff”
AlexP: “[Getting a dose of motivation], it’s got to be like brushing your teeth. After all, we were motivated to drink. We need a Motivation Store to drop into, on our way round our day.”
Here’s an extract. It’s a 3 minute sample taken from about the half-way point.

I stopped by because I was having a panick attack. I’ve learned over the last 107 days to just hunker down and ride them through.
Oh Belle. I’ve missed your writing! I’m so glad I’m back on WP, and plan on sticking around. I’d love to listen to this, but I am at work. I hope I can find time soon!
Thanks Belle. Needed to fill my tank today and listening to your radio podcast was a perfect reminder that I’m learning, and practicing all this – before I go to see the weirdo neighbors. ?
yes yes yes. move your buttons so the weirdo neighbours can’t push them! go you. you’re practising. learning new stuff. all is well.
