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. August 21 (last night!) was my last drink. I want to do this. How perfect is your blog, because it’s so true. I’m SO tired of thinking about drinking. Especially during sleepless nights because alcohol won’t let me sleep anymore! I’m doing this for my health. I’m 44. Time to grow up.

  2. My last drink was 8/20/15. Excited to start day 2.

  3. Day 5…anxiety is finally settling down. Was jumping out of my skin until last night. Woke up feeling pretty calm (although my husband is REALLY irritating to me right now! lol) Definitely finding these blogs extremely helpful.

    • I’m now at day 5. I have slept so good every single night. Wow! I didn’t realize some effects were so immediate. And yay Maggie! We are growing up! Susie Lee you go for it! We are hanging in there with you. Coreycan my anxiety is down too. It feels great doesn’t it? Jimmyinrecovery, katie, CiCi let’s do this! I love this blog, thank you Belle.

  4. August 23 was my last glass. This is my second day one this month. Ready for it to be my last…

    Last drink on August 15. I agree with Heidi — I’m 46. Time to grow up. :)

  6. I’d like to take this 100 day challenge. I’m currently on day 3.

    I drank my last drink on August 23, 2015. I’m halfway through my third consecutive sober day in over 15 years. For the last couple of years, it’s become no big deal for me to drink a 1.5 liter bottle of wine, plus a few vodka shots, in one night. My tolerance has increased over the years, to the point where I could drink just about anyone under the table without breaking a sweat. I decided on Monday morning that I can’t live like that anymore. So far, I’m hanging in there and I hope everyone else here is, too.

    Today is my day 40! I feel proud of myself. I’m also feeling vigilant, like there’s a “not sure what’s around the corner” feeling lurking. Gotta stay alert. Wolfie’s been eerily quiet and it’s kinda freaking me out.
