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.




Early Post

By: DL

I'm starting this post very early tonight. Mostly because I'm not doing a damn thing.

I went to the park today to take some photos for a local sober activities group. I'd forgotten they were doing something today, but when I came across it on Facebook, I decided that was my goal.

I absolutely abhor begin late, so as usual, I got there early. Very early. I sat for nearly an hour before people started showing up -- late. Ugh. Two hours later, the hosts never showed up, and via text, had decided on a very different activity indoors. Nice.

I left and went to a different park, and took a few photos, but eventually just headed back home, as nothing was very interesting to me.

After sitting at home working on blog/website, I just couldn't stand sitting home any longer, so I head out with my old, clunky laptop, and here I sit, in a coffee shop, typing this post.


I'm not sure that this is any better than sitting at home, except that I'm not *there*, I'm here. But now, I'm uncomfortable, because there are people everywhere, and I don't know who's reading over my shoulder. I keep glancing around, and I feel like I look suspicious, as though I'm being sneaky and hiding something... criminy.

So, this post isn't going to get as much care and attention as I usually give it, because I'm blasting through it, nervously. But, I guess at least I'm out and about?

<nervous laugh>


Gratitude - Day 21 (Saturday)

It's been a struggle today, but the day is coming to a close. And as I began to type this gratitude out, I didn't think I had anything new to *really* be grateful for, but then I realized -- it's day twenty-one. That means that my initial goal of creating a new habit by being grateful for three weeks, has been accomplished!

Just earlier today, I was thinking (as I was kicking my own @$$), "You never accomplish anything!" Which is untrue, but for some reason I was feeling that way today, and I have this blog to prove it. I've hit twenty-one days, my three week goal, of listing something I'm grateful for. I will continue to do so for the rest of the month, too. And, if compelled, I may even continue through to the New Year! But let's set short, attainable goals, like the one I am completing this evening, and make progress -- not perfection.

(okay, i'm posting this, and then leaving this joint... yikes ;) )



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.
