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.

Only God!!!

By: WC

CS Lewis once said: If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

What an amazing man CS Lewis was. I love his writing. The quote above absolutely speaks to me. This evening I went to a meeting. Afterwards we were all sitting around chewing the fat. So many different conversations were going on. As I listen to the  laughter fill the room. Then suddenly I was revisited by old familiar feeling. I felt like I was sitting in a room full of people and I was all alone. I haven't felt that feeling in a long time. Normally im the life of the party. Mixed in all the conversations, laughing and joking. Tonight was definitely the exception though. As I drove home I thought to myself.  I wonder why I feel this way?! I'm doing the work.(Aka the 12 steps/being of service) suddenly the thought crossed my mind. Prayer and meditation. I've heard it said that praying is talking to God and meditation is listening for God's answers. Today I realize that feeling means there's something off and I need to connect my higher power. You hear it all the time in the rooms. Pain is the touchstone for spiritual growth. That's a hard pill to swallow sometimes! I don't know anybody that wants to be in pain. But that's reality. I'm happy to say that feeling subsided. While I may have been made for another world,as the quote above says. While I'm here in this world I have to develop a relationship with my higher power. I want to be happy, joyous and free! I want the life that AA promises me & only God can make that possible!!! I'll leave you with this. 

In God there is no hunger that needs to be filled, only plenteousness that desires to give. CS Lewis

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.
