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. I want to join this challenge – today is my day 1

  2. HI! It’s day 12 for me. I document my journey on instagram. Now I’m the one with the drinking issues….But it’s better than to be hammered. I wonder what I will do when the 100 days are going to end. Being sober is new for me. I’ve done two 30 days of sobriety challenges in the past year, but then I always started drinking again and not too little amounts. So what’s the use in the 30 days I asked myself. I’m afraid, because things are moving faster when I do not have to think about drinking and am not so dependent on it anymore. Nevertheless I take things slow. I’m a bit puzzled what to think of all of this. It seems there is more space in my head now and I don’t know how to deal with it yet. xo.

  3. Day 3. Last drink February 15th. It’s Saturday which usually meant first drink by 11am and going till I pass out in the evening. First time trying to be home and sober all day. Wish I had work to go to and fill the day…

  6. Wow this is real! Time to kick Wolfe’s asks😀

  7. Hi – I’m on my Day 21 and I would not be here without Belle – my sober car had a little splutter over the weekend and threatened to veer off the road but I looked in the rearview mirror (and the road behind me is getting longer) and I thought “I don’t want to go back to BottlesVille, I want to travel the sober HWay 1 and see where it takes me” – things in the rearview mirror looked dark and hazy – but ahead I can see the fog slowly clearing. I know I can’t race to wherever I’m going – what is that famous saying about enjoying the ride. Thanks Belle for your ongoing support – I haven’t gone 21 days without a drink in over 20 years!

  8. I also want to do this and today is my day 1
