Breaking our own promises

Great audio from Nicole Antoinette at Life Less Bullshit about the subject of ‘stopping breaking the promises you make to yourself’.

It’s particularly resonant because, as she shares in the audio, 3 years ago Nicole was one of us boozers struggling with daily drinking, getting up in the morning and promising she wouldn’t drink that day and then breaking that promise later that same day. Familiar stuff right?

Now she’s been sober 3 years and this is one of the things that helped her get sober.  So if it worked for her, and if you’re stuck in this daily promises dilemma, it might help you 🙂

Edited to add: 07.19am The promise I am making to myself today is that I have signed up to the Recovery 2.0 Beyond Addiction online conference this week-end.  I won’t have the time to listen to all the speakers but I will commit to listening to a few each day as part of my self-care routine this week-end.  What small promise are you making to yourself today?

  1. I love it! She’s so inspiring, really makes you feel, I can do this. So here’s my promise: that script I wrote *ages* ago, that I keep meaning to do something with and yet never go anywhere near, I’m going to read through it this weekend, not re-write it, not make it perfect, just get the fucker out and read it, and maybe note down some thoughts. Its a start 🙂 xxx

  2. Nicole is a real no nonsense girl. I like her style! Thanks Lucy – have signed up xxx

    1. Hi binky69 Thanks for reading and commenting. She is isn’t she? That’s why I like her too 🙂 xx

  3. Hello, another Lucy, wow. Thank you for this video link, I can’t wait to listen to it. I’m also going to check out the online conference you mentioned. Congratulations on 1 year, 4 months sober, that is awesome, I’m so envious!

    1. Hi Lucy 😉 Thanks for reading and commenting. I wish it was 1 year 4 months but I’m actually 4 months off one year – so 7 1/2 months but thank you anyway 🙂
