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).

hugs, belle xo

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 …

Sober Podcast 358 – Who’s in Charge of You? You are.

This is my second official check-in from paris during the corona virus. this audio starts as a report on our day, what we did and didn’t do. Then it turns into a hard talk, between you and me, about who’s in charge of the inside of your head, and if you’re thinking that drinking right now would be a ‘good idea’ then I call bullshit 🙂 I try to do it nicely though. mostly 🙂 it’s not Ranty Belle, more like ‘let’s get real Belle’.

I’ll also load this audio into the free apple podcast feed, and will send it also to podcast subscribers.

le (non-contagious) hugs from me xo

Sober Podcast 229 – I Wish I Could Fly

“I wish I could have one drink, just have one glass and then stop. I know I’ve tried it before, but I really wish I could. Maybe I’ll try again.”

compare that to:

“I wish I could fly, just flap my wings and fly. I know I’ve tried to fly before, but I really wish I could do it. Maybe I’ll try to fly again.”

In this audio I talk about distorted thinking, delusions, and how hard it is to talk someone off a ledge when they believe they can fly.

Question: It’s easy to see this in terms of flying. Someone saying they can fly is clearly delusional. And the wolfie voice? What does he say to us that sounds frightfully similar?

hugs, me xo

ps. something different in this audio, can’t put my finger on it, but when i was editing it, it felt ‘different’ somehow. you maybe can tell why, where i can’t.
