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.

Meditation -- Let's Talk

By: DL

For those of you that have been following me for a while or know who I am, you'll no doubt realize that I am really big on meditation.  Meditation has been a huge part of my recovery.  I often get questions or comments from people about how hard it is, or statements about how they are "doing it wrong," or that they can't get their mind to stop thinking.  But's as hard as it seems, it's not very hard at all -- just sometimes easier than others.

Meditation is rarely ever a completely silent mind.  It is attempting to achieve that silence.  Sometimes, it is easy and quick; sometimes, it is not.  In those difficult cases, when a thought arises, we simply acknowledge the thought, set it aside, and continue to move forward.  This is meditation, grasping those moments of complete emptiness, for however long they are, and being at peace with it; releasing fears, anxiety, depression, hopelessness, and more.  The deal is, it takes practice, and that means doing it, for however much time we can give it.  Five, ten, thirty minutes, an hour.  Just do it

I could write all day long on this, but I came across a video that discusses this very well, so I've included it below.  If you can take an extra ten minutes for your self, watch the video.  Rich Roll does a good job of explaining it.

Simply do -- or don't.

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.
