Tired of Thinking About Drinking

Would you like to do the 100 day sober challenge?

Hi there.

  1. Would you like to do the 100 Sober Challenge?
    Here’s the pledge:
    “I will not drink for 100 days.  No matter what.  I can cry, but I will not drink.  I can go to bed or go home early. I might feel distressed … but I will not drink.  Bad things might happen, but I will not drink.  Incredibly shitty things may happen to someone around me, or my neighbour, or my friend’s friend’s grandmother.  But there will be no booze.  Funerals? Weddings? Amputation?  I’m not drinking for 100 days no matter what happens … No matter what.”
  2. Make a note of the date of your last drink and post a comment here to let us know.
  3. Read the sober blogs (mine and others) every day. Become involved. Post comments on the blogs. The more you reach out, the more sober tools you add, the easier you’ll find it.
  4. Sign up to get daily sober motivation here.
  5. If you’d like to have a sober penpal (how cool, can’t wait to get to know you!), then sign up for the Sober Jumpstart class. There are three versions of the class — short, audio only, and long. All three versions come with a free sober penpal (me!). You can email me every single day, ask questions, rant, whine, and get cheerleading. I answer every email I receive. And yes, we remain sober penpals after the class is over. For as long as you’d like. For years.


(NOTE: If you HAVE signed up to do the challenge before, then you have a spot and a member number already. And we’re penpals already. Your spot is here. Just email me to restart or to tell me how you’re doing.)

  1. Day 13 I’m aggo, irritated and angry. Everything is pissing me off. I literally have no patience for anything at all. Praying this passes soon.

  2. Day 14 for me, and I really need to nail it this time

  3. Im struggling. Alcohol is a thief, stealing my life one day at a time. My enjoyment, because I’m always hung over. My peace of mind because I’m constantly worried about what it’s doing to my body. My energy to do anything fun or useful with my life. After years of struggling to kick my addiction to the kerb, I’m exhausted. I’m fairly certain my inability to leave alcohol alone is because of the negative stigmas implanted in my mind since childhood but also as recently as a month ago by a somewhat condescending doctor I’d gone to seeking help. His ignorant “just stop drinking” after I’d detailed my years of struggle was not helpful. I’m tired of being made to feel I’m a bad person by being addicted to this legally available poison. Me and all the other people suffering from alcohol addiction deserve much more support and cutting edge care. I’m tired of the old “counselling” model. It doesn’t work. AA is fine if you’re into discussing your most personal details with a group of strangers and you don’t mind being “stuck in the alcohol mud” for the rest of your life. I don’t fit that model. Ive realised only I can save myself and create the life I’ve dreamed of before it’s too late. In order to do so, I need to immerse myself in a supportive, private, understanding environment. I’m not wealthy. I cannot afford to stay in a rehabilitation facility. I wish I could request a “healing grant” from the liquor industry to pay for my rehabilitation Ha! I’m going to approach my recovery in a positive light from now on and use your blog and all the good people involved as another tool in my wellness arsenal. Im looking forward to a wonderful, free and creative future. My 100 days starts today. Best of luck to everyone else doing the same. xx
