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.

Today

By: DL

Today was a very good day.  It wasn’t “tip-top” great, but it also wasn’t “in the pits.”  It was just “good.”

It’s funny, because I used to want better than good, I wanted great!  But I didn’t get great today, I got good.  And guess what?

I’m okay with that!  I am more than okay with that!

You see, I didn’t wake up wanting to be dead.  I didn’t “come-to” sitting in front of my computer while at work, wondering how many people I’d spoken with or what projects I was supposed to be working on.  I didn’t have to hide the scent of vodka on my breath, or oozing from my pores.  I didn’t have to worry about going through the shakes, and craving the perpetually problematic-fix.

Nor did I have to bother with who-I-was-going-to-lie-to-about-some-out-of-proportion-problem-in-order-to-borrow-enough-money-to-buy-just-enough-gas-so-I-could-race-to-the-liquor-store-down-street-hoping-I-wouldn’t-get-pulled-over; forget about the ticket – I had to get to the store before it closed!

I didn’t skip my dinner because I wanted to get drunk faster, and I didn’t think everyone was stealing my liquor because I drank more of it faster than I did the night before.  I didn’t go to bed loathing myself, dream of killing myself, and the following morning – hating myself because I wasn’t dead.

However –

This morning, I do remember contemplating and praying and releasing and meditating.  I remember feeling warm inside, and out.  I remember sharing. I remember giving.  I remember being compassionate and caring and loving and being at ease for a change.  I remember walking the steps. And I remember being okay with an undefined Higher Power for once in my life.  I remember who I was, who I am, and who I strive to be.  I do remember these things – because I can.

<sigh>

Today was a very good day.  I’m okay with that.

Namasté

 

Drunkless Life

Be Positive. Be Compassionate. Be Love. Be Spiritual. Be Life. Just BE.

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.
