In It


Laurie is a 1000 Days Sober coach.

I remember she once posted this in the forum.

"Here in this community, if we are truly ‘in it’ we know there’s only one way to get to the other side of the tough things, and that is straight through it."

She’s right, of course.

You learn it in the movies, the reality TV shows, and comic strips. You learn it when you play Battleships with Uncle Peter. The nun knows it. The priest knows it. The woman who designed suntan powder knows it as does the man who gets to clean the lion’s teeth.

So why do we forget when it comes to alcohol?

It’s not something you do on a whim.

It has no place on a New Year’s Eve tick list.

If you want to become someone who doesn’t drink alcohol, you need to go through the Resistance with a sledgehammer.

It’s one of the most addictive drugs in the world.

Of course, we need to go straight through it.

Are you ready?

Are you prepare to be truly ‘in it?’

If so, we have a hand free at either end of our huddle.

Come and grab one.
