Audio: “Keep It Exciting”

MAY 30 2017

This was Sober Podcast Episode #186 for my weekly sober podcast series.

So, what does it mean if you have a boring stretch of time in your sobriety?

Well, the answer depends on if you’re on day 7 or 77 or 700.

Below i’ve posted a 3.5 minute extract from near the beginning of the podcast. the full thing is 28 minutes long, but this chunk here stands alone. if you’d like to listen to the whole thing you can use the link to download at the bottom of the post.

Have you had a ‘my sobriety lacks sparkle’ time? Did you hear anything in this podcast that would help you if it happens again?

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’m on day 55 and hearing the excerpt I realized that yes I recognize this, I sometimes feel bored with it, tired of no escape. And I needed this reminder, it’s ok to feel whatever I’m feeling.
    And so I bought the recording and will listen, and keep listening, to all the wisdom, and remember that there’s no reason to think it would be ok, drinking again. What I’m gaining and what I will gain is way better…. Thanks, Belle.
