Audio: Longing …

I recorded an audio (episode #140) for my longer, weekly sober podcast series. You’re familiar with the one-minute audios. These are longer, meatier. This one is about longing for food, longing for crushes, longing to go home, and yearning for alcohol. I start by talking about a longing for a hot turkey sandwich and how that relates to being sober.

The full audio for this episode is 19 minutes long. Here’s a 2-minute preview that begins at about the 10:45 point in the 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

  • So homework… come up with 5 things I can do to fulfill the “longing” that I thought was for booze. The longing I have is for that “fuck it/do something stupid/irresponsible/wild abandonment” feeling. Anyone have a similar longing and any ideas of another way to fulfill it….that won’t get me in trouble with the law? Thank you in advance!

  • You have reached me in a way that no councellor that I have been to has ever been able to – and I live in New Zealand. Thank you from across the kilometres.
