October Day 11
i have created a check-in space here for today. the goal of Sober for October is continuous days sober.
In the comments on the blog, you can say how many continuous days you’ve had so far in October … 3 or 8 or 10 working on today as the 11th continuous day? Only post this 🙂 Don’t post “new day 1 for the 18th time.” Don’t post “Day 366.”
Just post how many continuous days you’ve done in october. You’ll see this long list of people and it’s going to look so cool!
you can put in a screen name when it asks for your ‘name’. and email addresses are NOT displayed (EVER). i also approve every comment before it is posted 🙂 And i’ll edit out stuff that’s not related to the topic.
So you? It’s your turn now. Even if you’ve never posted something on a blog before 🙂 You can say how many continuous sober days you’ve had in October, and what’s the biggest thing you’ve realized so far in the past couple of weeks of doing this…
ok, i’ll start …
hugs, belle xo

Today will be 31 on Halloween in Sober for October. Handing out candy tonight to the kids🎃
Day 28 🧡🧡
27 just woke up one morning and couldn’t stand the view
39 days today and I’m hard pressed to think of more impactful decision in my life. Everything feels so much easier, simpler. Some recent highlights: being able to pick up someone else’s kids at 9:30 on a Friday night as a last minute favor to another mom. Going to a 6:00 am class at the Y twice a week. Taking time to talk with my kids at bedtime and remembering it all the next day!
10 days. Supposed to be doing sober October. I’m a weekend binge drinker. Now that I have realized that still can mean I’m an alcoholic I’ve also noticed how much I actually think about drinking.
Day 22 and grateful to say it.
Day 21.. Happy lady
On day 19 ..sleep is wonderful …no more wasted days…I’ll be 60 next year I need ALL my days …feeling good and feeling grateful that I found Belle ..a bit scared of wolfie coming my way at the end of this month …just happens I am going on vacation with some people who love to drink ..I will be listening to your one minute messages and will be reading a lot of your emails as I will need this at this time …hugs to you Belle and thank you so much !!!
17 sober days this October, so far! Had a wobble this afternoon after a particularly trying day, but now happily watching telly totally sober! Yeh!!🎉🎉!
Day 16 counting today!
I’m up to day 7! No big deal compared to most on here, but – during today’s sunny run – I realised this is almost certainly the longest I’ve ever gone without a drink since I was 17…almost 30 years. Not sure whether to smile or cry about that one, but still one day at a time I guess. Love this blog 🙂
my longest stretch in October was 11 days but there’s still time to beat that! Day 3!!
Happy days… October 15th
30 days, bitches! (Still feel sad for sweet little Jesse Pinkman…if only he’d had Belle).
So much easier and better than I imagined. 70 more days to complete the challenge I set out to do. At this point I see no good reason to mess with this good thing I have going so we’ll see how I feel when I hit the mark.
On day 15 for sober October … Feeling just FABULOUS. Thank you all ☺️
At last I’ve got started! 2 days. Eaten rather a lot of cake instead! Fingers crossed and focused for day 3! My best to all the rest of you. X
13 days and loving it!!!
Thirteen days in October… !
14 days in October 🙂
Just found this blog today. Officially starting today. Day one.
13 days, 13 sober wins–YES!! One day, one hour, one minute at a time if that’s what it takes. Use those powers of procrastination for good for once, and when Wolfie comes calling (and the biggest thing I’ve learned is that he WILL–LONG after you think he should have forgotten about you), just put it off. Alcohol is a false promise; it won’t make anything better. Ask instead–what am I really needing? Peace? Stress relief? To stop feeling so bad about [ ]? To stop feeling, period? To feel better about [ ]? Whatever it is, it means it’s time to refill/revisit your toolbox. Rearrange your vegetables. Organize your sock drawer. Stare at the sky for a while. Smell the breeze, listen to the crickets, watch that fly buzzing around. If they can get through life without booze, so can you. There is goodness in life, and there are good things you can do for yourself. Hang in there. It’s so worth it. <3
13 days! Loving every day of it!
13 days as of 10/13!
Oct 13, 13 days sober this month.
13 days sober in October. October 13
13 days in October. October 13.
6 days sober, October 13
Day 12 of Sober for October. Love seeing so many others going alcohol free!!! 🥰
7 days sober, getting to know my sober self is physically great but mentally unstable
12th of Oct. 12 days of continuous sobriety in October.
11 days poison free, I am so proud of myself x
12 days in October … I’ve had a year, got off the elevator and got my ass kicked by Wolfie and wisely said “Nope, not this shit again” and ran back on. I’ll reach through the door to pull you in but I’m not getting off the sober elevator again. Hugs
12 days today 🍂 🍁 🎃 🧡
Ok October 11 is the first day and Ocober 12, today is the start of day 2
I am 11 days continuously sober and it feels good! I have always had lots of energy but now it abounds. I have been consciously thinking about ways to change the channel in my head and it works. Who knew. Every day feels full of opportunity and I feel like I’m actually properly listening to my parents, my kids and all those who rely on me. Thank you Belle.
Day 11 in October and knowing day 12 guaranteed. Last night my husband made me a yummy banana split as my Friday treat and to my delight my new tapestry cushion cover arrived in the post so my hands and mind were kept busy. Why a cover of a lobster? Just because I liked the colours and it’s a bit whacky that’s all. Hadn’t expected floor -cushion size but even more of a challenge! Proves you can look forward to more things than drink on a Friday night so f*** off Woolfie and leave me alone. Love to all you supporters out there.
11 days without any alcohol.
Getting better at shutting out the Wolf 😁
Today is my 11th continuous day sober in October. Can’t wait for tomorrow and another Sober Day.
11 days! So grateful for hangover Free mornings❤
Three consecutive days😊. Well done all x
