Audio: Don’t Drink (episode sp148)

This is Sober Podcast Episode #148 for my longer, weekly sober podcast series. You’re familiar with the one-minute audios. These are longer, meatier.

In this episode, I had to wait for my husband to leave before I recorded it. I figured i was going to cry while doing it, and i didn’t want to alarm him.

Usually i only put up an extract of the podcast and then tell you to go buy the whole thing and/or to sign up for the monthly podcast subscription.

But I think this audio needs to be heard in its entirety. So i’m going to put up the whole thing (7 minutes long) and i’m going to leave it up so that you can hear the whole thing. So please listen now. right now.

The full audio for this episode is 7 minutes long.

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

  • I have no idea why out of the clear, blue sky this podcast appeared in my inbox. I had never heard of Belle. Call it divine intervention, or anything you like but boy did I need to hear this. I am struggling to even get a DAY 1. I am 100% sure I would be drunk by now if I had not listened to this podcast. My husband died from a drunken fall off of a roof 7 years ago. That didn’t slow me down one bit. I have broken both wrists in falls, in separate incidents. That didn’t slow me down one bit. After hearing this podcast, a voice in my head said “next time it could be much, much worse”. So, I didn’t drink today and I thank Belle, or whomever sent me this podcast šŸ™‚

  • Belle, I simply love you and your blog. You have helped me to get sober and to want to stay sober. This podcast brought tears to my eyes but also strengthened my resolve never to ingest poison again. 75 days today v
