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.

Last Drinks

By: Drinkless Sakyong

I remember one of my last drunks. Not fondly. A friend of mine, a ukulele slinging cowboy from Nashville, well, currently from Nashville, originally from Twin Falls, was playing at the Neurolux. A couple girlfriends and myself met up at the wine bar downtown where we wine tasted enough to get a little buzz. Next we walked to a sushi bar to eat a little before the show. Saki is always a good idea at a sushi joint. We tried a couple exotic varietals of Saki. I am allergic to Saki. Even more so than regular alcohol. I don't know what it is but it always ends in a bad drunk. This time was no exception.

We went to the Neurolux and I thought I was fine. I proceeded to drink more. At this point it was probably vodka tonic or wine. I had a few more and then decided I needed to go or something. I went with my friend Sam outside and managed to talk him into driving me home. The ride commences. I forget where I live, or I don't want Sam to know, or something. Who knows. We head back to the bar. I can't walk. Every third step on the way to the door, I fall. Once.flat.on.my.face. My friend, the singer, was going to crash on our couch but after seeing what shape I am in, he declines.

I go home, finally remembering where I live, and have to explain all the cuts and bruises from falling multiple times, to my boyfriend, and why I left with Sam. And why I think this is okay. Why do I think this is okay?

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.
