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.

But today is nearly over...

By: DL

Ever make a decision or say something you're not sure you should have? Maybe it was okay, but maybe it wasn't!

This weekend has been a mess for me. I've been trying to keep my head looking forward, but it's been either back, or down. I keep going over a minor event in my head that happened Friday evening, and I just can't conclude as to whether it was okay, not okay, understood, misunderstood, or -- what?

I argue one side, and realize how stupid of me it was to even have the conversation. On the other hand, it made perfectly good sense, so really, things are more than just fine.

Or -- maybe there was a misunderstanding on their part, or -- no, maybe on MY part! Oh bother -- this is just going round and round.

So, it has been a completely pointless battle amongst Left Side and Right Side (again) -- all weekend long. I just haven't been able to get a grip on either one of them, and I won't even be able to have "closure" of the conversation until this next Tuesday -- if I should even bring it up (Left Side argues with Right).

<sigh>

Ever have a "Shut up!!! I've had enough!!!" moment, when you're sitting alone in your car, arguing with yourself, at a stop light, and instead of using your inner-voice, you use your outer-voice, and people in other vehicles are staring at you, wondering who in the hell you're yelling at?

Ya. One of THOSE weekends.

But today is nearly over, and i'm still completely sober. Tomorrow is another day, and I'll be on a more regular schedule. Sometimes, I think I go to work just so I can take a break from my Me-Time.

Gratitude - Day 22 (Sunday)

I am grateful for the 12-step yoga meeting that I attend. I didn't want to go tonight, and it didn't help that I was being called a name that wasn't my name, but it was good. The topic was spot on (surprise surprise -- that kind of stuff still blows me away), and I needed the physical activity and stretching. Although it didn't completely silence my mind, it helped that I was somewhere else for two hours rather than just inside my head -- and I think any alcoholic can appreciate 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.
