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 was that girl right up until 18 days ago! This podcast has just reminded me that I would often say to my friends when talking about relationships or work, something along the lines of ‘if we keep doing the same thing, we can only expect the same results’. Why did it never occur to me to apply my own advice to my relationship with booze?! Belle, your illustration makes it crystal clear where I am now and hopefully I’ll be strong enough to encourage others like you are doing for me. Thank you.
