Drunkless

Letting others see in, so we can see out.

We are Recovering alcoholics and addicts, and these are mini-chapters of our lives. Here, we are learning to live a life of choice; we're learning to live Drunkless.

We'll share in our writings, in our podcasts, in our photos, art, and music -- our creativity will show who we are, what we're going through, and how we make it -- 24 hours at a time.

Drunkless LIFE Podcasts: Recovery Podcast & Wandering Podcast

I sobered up on September 21, 2013 after a run for death.  By shear accident, when I reached out to get a ride to the liquor store, I inadvertently made the one call that would lead me to saving my life.  After a begrudging struggle, I decided to listen to the recovery center where, for the first time, I caught a sliver of the rising sun -- for all of it's glory.

I knew at that point I had to be honest with myself if I was going to grow and get away from what was killing me -- ME.  So I began my long journey; afraid of living, terrified of failure, scared of my own shadow, and wishing for death -- but ultimately learning the truth.

And today, I'm still learning my truths, growing in a light that I intentionally try to wrap myself with, and a love and compassion that feed my soul with kindness and care.  I am changing.  What I write, draw, or say in my blogs, art, or talks are how I feel and what I believe at the time that I write/draw/speak them -- but I reserve the right to grow and change my mind at any point in time, whether ten years from now, or ten seconds after I've posted it.  It's called growth, and I'm doing it.

Going from Nearly-Daily blogging to Once-A-Week, these blogs are mini-chapters of my life. I write them to help me process my day; to talk to "somebody" besides Left Side and Right Side, who work tirelessly to shut me down.  I write them to work through issues on a wide scale from simple, to highly complex; to find my Life in Recovery, and to learn to live life Drunkless.

I am a believer in Life, Love, Release, and Acceptance -- all of which I achieve through meditation, the very practice that created my connection to my Higher Power.  I believe in physical and spiritual connectivity, tying the two together with mental and emotional threads sewn from the heart; seeking stability through connectivity with one another and the Universe in Nature as a whole.

I seek not to be found, but to find, and in my finding, I hope to help the hopeless; the desperate souls that have lost their way in their search for acceptance, love, and understanding.  It is with this that I extend my hand in the only way I know how -- my own experience and strength, as odd as it may or may not be.

I will post a small blog here to journal my day(s) or week(s) and the most prominent thoughts, feelings, or lessons, which may spur bigger movements and larger discussions.  In doing so, I seek not only find answers for myself, but to offer a possibility of hope for those seeking the light, by whichever path they find that leads them to it.

Drunkless does not intended to diagnose, treat, or resolve any alcoholic or addiction condition in any way, shape or form.  Drunkless deals primarily with chemical addictions and aims to share the experience, strength, and hope of our bloggers, podcasters, and associated guests and visitors.  Though we recognize and realize that there are many forms of addiction and mental disorders, we are not experienced nor educated in ways where we can advise or give feedback on many of them.  As such, it is up to our visitors to discern the differences and to take appropriate action to seek help for themselves or loved ones.  However, we do hope to provide a glimpse into the correlation between some of them and hopefully allow someone a "one-up" on getting help before it becomes life threatening -- after all, that is our goal -- to provide hope where we can, and possibly save a life.

The authors, podcasters, artists, creativists, and other "hosts" on this site do it therapeutically, educationally, inspirationally, and to share their experience, strength and hope, as well as for entertainment... After all, we are not a glum lot.

Drunkess™ does not endorse nor support any one kind of recovery path, it supports all forms of recovery if the path is healthy, positive, and leads to the light.
