Are you “Tired of Thinking About Drinking?” You’re not alone. My name is Belle, and I am sober. I originally created this blog to document my own journey to sobriety (the sucky parts and the glow-in-the-dark realizations). Along the way, I’ve gathered some friends, and now it’s so much more than just a blog. It’s a community gathering place for the exchange of ideas. What you’ll find here (hopefully!) is a new kind of sober resource, with a personal touch that you won’t find on other “resource” sites. If this is your first time visiting, I’ve made up a little baby roadmap for you, that might be helpful:
1 > Popular Blog Posts (read these!)
To get to know me a bit, here are a couple of blog posts that summarize my ideas on being sober:
- Sobriety is Like a Little Car
- Dehydrate the Wolf
- Afraid of Quitting Drinking *Forever*?
- I Want Help for Sobriety … But Not AA
- Relapse. What Could You *Add*
2 > 100 Day Sober Challenge (you can sign up)
To read more about the 100 Day Sober Challenge, and to find out how you can get started, go here.
3 > Sober Jumpstart (i.e. get started being sober today)
I’ve created a 5-part audio coaching class, especially to help deal with the first bit of sobriety: how to pick a replacement drink, what to tell people (and when), how to deal with the idea of ‘forever’… If you think the class might suit you, I have a new session starting each week. I only take 10 people at a time, cuz of commitment and communication and stuff. You can learn more here. There are three versions of the class: short, audio-only, and long. And a sober penpal is included
4 > Read Blog Posts in Order (follow along)
