Day 16

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing” Albert Einstein Welcome to day 16 of my 30 days to sobriety. Gee it really is becoming a bit normal this not pouring a drink (well at least not an alcoholic one) at wine o’clock.  A bit second nature maybe.  […]

Day 15

Welcome to day 15 of my 30 days to sobriety You may have noticed I can’t count and there is no day 14.  No I did not go on a bender, I got confused and skipped onto day 15.  It did not matter much as day 14 was a review and had no actions, and […]

Day 13

Welcome to day 13 of my 30 days to sobriety. Lucky 13 eh? It was also mothers day, so it’s my day all around.  I did not even have any “I deserve a wine on my day” thoughts.  This is progress. Todays homework was a bit freaky; it was based on Tapping (or the Emotional […]

Day 12

Welcome to day 12 of my 30 days to sobriety. Today was (again) content I am familiar with; it focused on the power of your subconscious mind. Which is not always swimming with you. I see my subconscious a bit like a super powerful beast, that is very obedient and has a photographic memory – […]

Day 11

Welcome to day 11 of my 30 days to sobriety. Turns out I didn’t need wine to forget stuff (its actually day 12, but I just noticed day 11 failed to launch). Before I get to 12, I want to quickly share some profound learnings I had in the homework for Day 11 (and it […]

Day 10

Welcome to day 10 or my 30 days to sobriety. One third of the way there, double digits, yippee! Todays home work was about connecting with your core values.  I could whip through this as its a thing I do/teach etc …. but like the builder with a house falling down, honouring my values is […]

Day 9

Welcome to day 9 of my 30 days to sobriety How do I feel – sober? Sober. Maybe a little too Sober. On balance I am having many new and positive experiences, I am coping with late afternoons much better.  I am probably happier than the last week of drinking.  But I am still struggling, […]

Day 8

Welcome to day 8 or my 30 days to sobriety. Today was one of those days; sick child (heartbreaking as it is ongoing), mystery stenches rising from the kitchen sink, broken glass in the bathroom, lack of sympathy from someone in the inner circle (who shall not be named), passive aggressive interchanges with the local […]

Day 7

Welcome to Day 7 of my 30 days to sobriety. Today we say whoop- whoop! go me! Because I finished Part 1 and completely a full week cycle, without a single sip of wine. I also survived a colonoscopy and gastroscopy today – so I really deserve some credit (as does Him Indoors who stepped […]

Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of my 30 days to sobriety. So far I have been writing my posts and doing my homework at my previous ‘happy hour’ – which I now confess (to myself and others) starts at 4pm, even if I can’t see a clock (I’m like the dog knowing when the owner is […]
