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.

Learn by what?

I hear people in meetings say, "You learn from MISTAKES!  You have to make them, that's how we learn!"
What?
What about learning from SUCCESSES?

Not everything has to be a mistake in order to learn something from it.  It is highly possible to say, "Oh, wow!  Well that turned out good!  I'm so glad I thought of that!  I think I'll do that again next time!"

As opposed to:

"Goddamn it! I'm such a loser for messing that up, I shouldn't have done it that way because it was destructive and painful.  Guess I won't do that again." 

The end result is the same, we've still killed the spider; but option one wasn't as destructive and didn't burn down the house!  Well, not so destructive for us anyway, it looks like the poor spider was done for either way.

If we focus on the things we've learned through successes, we're happier and more positive about things in our life, which in turn attracts positivity.

If we focus on the things we've learned through mistakes, we're less happy and more negative about things in our life, which in turn attracts negativity.

Does that mean that focusing solely on successes means that we'll never make a mistake again?  Of course not, that's absurd!  It means that we need to learn from the mistake, but to focus on the ones we have successes with!  This trains us to slow down and look for the "better" decisions, and if we're thinking positive, chances are that 1) we'll make the better choice, and 2) if we do make the wrong one, it will be easier to overcome because of our positive attitude; we've trained ourselves to be POSITIVE.

We should learn from both our mistakes, of course, but focus on our successes.  We'll be happier we did.

Thanks for letting me share!

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.
