I recorded an audio (episode #141) for my longer, weekly sober podcast series. You’re familiar with the one-minute audios. These are longer, meatier.
I get this email all the time: “After 100 days sober, do you think I could drink again?” I have one such message in my inbox right now. And so here’s my answer – in audio format. There’s something in this audio for you today, too.
The full audio for this episode is 20 minutes long. Here’s a 2-3 minute preview:

Short preview but completely full of truths and such useful information. Especially since I am on day 1 today. Again. It doesn’t stop unless I stop it.
Oh Belle !!! How true -the despair of starting again….. I love this. Xx. Thank you. ??
Thank you. This is so spot on. I just completed 100 days, so today is day 101. I woke up this morning coming out of a bad dream– one of those seems so real bad dreams. I dreamt I was in a supermarket and came around the corner to a kiosk giving out free glasses of white wine. I grabbed one and glugged it down as I continued pushing the cart, only to realize what I had done as I was holding an empty glass. Horrified, I thought: Oh no, I have to start over on day one. But then I woke up and was flooded with relief that it was just a dream. So, yeah.
This is a powerful message, Belle. Thanks for keeping us vigilant.

This resonates with me. A couple of years ago I made it to day 109 (or so). It was my 60th birthday. I thought I could drink to celebrate and then just go back to where I was. That didn’t happen. I started again and faltered. Believe me when I tell you that you don’t want to be 60 years old and still going through this shit. Life is too short to go to day 1 again.
Your story on here moved me. I keep thinking that I’ll do it some day but I’m just getting older and nothing is gonna change itself.
Thanks for sharing this! It motivates me!
