Sober Podcast 361 – Resilience

This is my third official audio check-in from paris during the corona virus. This audio was recorded at the duckpond on my Sunday run, on March 29th, 2020.

It’s about resilience, remembering the long game, doing what’s best for you, and impermanence…

I’ll also send it also to podcast subscribers.

Sober Podcast 088 – Angry Worms

Lydster asked me to talk about this: “Why does alcohol so darkly affect our mood. It fascinates me how having even one tiny drink would open just a teeny bit the can of extremely angry worms that live inside. Sometimes I wonder if I need them to all come out because that can must still be deep inside me ready to be opened. It’s weird. It’s like it switched on my angry tap…”

Angry worms. Angry birds. Does booze bring out the angry in us?

feedback from Wren:
“Oh, wow. This podcast was great. I had always thought that the white-hot anger that would erupt when I was plastered was due to lava bubbling deep within me, and that “the truth was at the bottom of the bottle.” Yet I didn’t feel that angry when I was sober–usually just deeply remorseful toward my husband, who often received the brunt of my anger … Your podcast was the first time I have heard this issue addressed — that it is in fact the booze that causes the anger, not the booze that illuminates existing anger that “lived” deep inside me, like some gross, slimy Alien creature! … That is such a relief to me. Thank you!”

hugs, belle xo

Sober Podcast 035 – Everything Else is Wolfie

You know the wolfie voice, he says ‘drink, drink now.’ but what about the other voices? the ones that say “this is too hard” or “wah this isn’t worth it.” What happens when you realize that wolfie, the lying bastard, is really behind all of those voices.

le sigh. then what?

then we unload the dishwasher.

omm164.test.or.protect

it’s not your job to test your sobriety, to put yourself in weird situations, to “see if you’ll be ok.” it’s your job to keep your chick from getting squished. well that’ll make more sense when you listen to the audio ! == happy sober saturday.

Sober Podcast 100 – Oh Look You’ve Evolved

This podcast is about change. When we first quit drinking everything seems raw and wacky. And then over time, we change.

The problem is, we can’t always see the changes. It’d be like trying to watch grass grow. Or watching flowers open. Or watching my hair turn grey strand by strand.

Here’s what Cricket has to say about this audio:

“Like you said, I’m not the same person I was. I’ve evolved. I’m making it through. I went back to “the scene of the crime” and I’m sober! I couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks for the podcast. It made me cry a little. Good tears! …”

Sober Podcast 140 – Longing

This one is about longing for food, longing for crushes, longing to go home, and yearning for alcohol. I start by talking about a longing for a hot turkey sandwich and how that relates to being sober.

COMMENTS:

Jaded (Day 105): “I’m still amazed at this “longing” podcast. I can now put a name to that feeling, and I think that helps me deal with it better, and also to know other people actually feel that same feeling, too? Amazing. Strangely comforting.”

Sober Podcast 260 – Kristi Coulter (2018)

It’s been a while since I spoke with penpal #128, Kristi Coulter. At the time of this recording, she had a new book coming out (“Nothing Good Can Come From This” > https://amzn.to/2KmRaYa ) but the story of how she got to here has a lot to teach us sober folks … like, how do you deal with people telling you that you just don’t get it, or that you’re shit?

Our first chat was for podcast #150 (link).

and the Enjoli article that we mention is here (link).

omm203.powerless

it’s not that we’re powerless over alcohol, it’s that we lose all ability to make decisions after the first drink. you want to get your power back? you can do that …
