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.

Official Chair

By: DL

Well, this has been a busy day. After work, I headed to two different appointments, one with my awesome counselor, and one with a friend and chairperson of one of the meditation meetings I attend. It's pretty much official, I'm now chairing the very meeting I love so much.

It's a small meeting, which is good for a guy like me who's so fearful of large crowds; though I can't attest as much to that as I used to be able to -- I'm getting more and more comfortable. Again, learning to live life on life's terms.

This anonymous meditation meeting is great. We open like any other meeting of its kind, read a little bit from a big, blue book ( wink emoticon ), and then listen to a meditation. The meditation is usually ten to twelve (plus) minutes long, and then there is time for discussing either 1) the reading, 2) the meditation, or 3) what ever someone needs to lay on the table.

Of course, being so small, the talking is usually pretty quick. smile emoticon But it will grow. This meeting is too important. I just hope that I'm not biting off more than I can chew.

Gratitude - Day 24 (Tuesday)

I'm thankful for the opportunity to find out I was, in fact, "wrong." That is to say, incorrect.

The "incident" that happened last Friday was not even an issue (so far as I can tell). From what I could see today, every ounce of that was in my head, and blown out of proportion (surprise surprise). Well, I actually knew that, I guess -- I just did what I do best; worry. More to my point, I'm just glad that *I* was making things worse, and that they weren't *actually* worse.

I know, kind of a weird thing to be grateful for, but I am.

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.
