today, let’s talk about things that make you feel better. one of the challenges of sobriety is dealing with uncomfortable feelings.
and when we feel crappy, it’s sometimes hard to remember what to DO to feel better.
For today, I would like you to put a comment on this blog post of something that you know that – when you do it – you feel better (about life, about yourself, about being sober). What one thing can you try the next time you’re having a frustrated, irritated, uncomfortable moment.
OK, I’ll begin. One thing I can do to ‘change the channel’ in my head when i’m feeling crappy is listen to music, turn it up loud, and sing along. Bonus points for singing out loud on public transit.
My blog allows anonymous comments, so you don’t have to fill in your name/email address if you don’t want to.
And to bribe you to participate, to support your sobriety, and encourage you to speak up, I will RANDOMLY select ONE comment from this blog post about 24 hrs from now, and that person will receive a sober Elevator bracelet for free.
