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.

go through life sober as an alcoholic

By: Drinkless Sakyong

I can never drink alcohol. I had my chance. I ruined it. I cannot go there. That ship sailed, and it crashed. In my first forty years of life, I proved as much to be true. I could be like the drummer for Stone Temple Pilots, who overdosed a few months ago. I can hear his reasoning, “I’ve got this. I can handle just a little. It’s been long enough that I am cured. Just once, for old time’s sake. I can handle it.” No you can’t, dummy. All that will get you is death. AND MISERY.

My daughter and I recently traveled to Twin Falls so I could attend the funeral of a friend. On the way home, we traveled the long way so we could stop and enjoy an hour at Miracle Hot Springs in Hagerman, Idaho. As we drove by the Black Bear Tavern, somewhere I drank once underage, I thought, “I can drink there now. I am of age, I am legal.” But I can’t drink there, or anywhere. Ever again.

Going to the hot springs brought memories of old trips to hot tubs and hot springs where I would conceal my alcohol in plastic adult sippy cups so my kid wouldn’t know. Alcohol was like a secret naughty friend I worked so hard to bring along, nurture, and protect. A friend I could never get enough of. Never. A horrible, naughty friend.

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.
