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.

The Fellowship

By: AJ

As an active alcoholic, I strived to fit in. Sure I had tons of friends, and they were around all the time – as long as I had what they wanted.  At the end of my drinking career, I spent $5,000 in three months.  All of it on alcohol and other alcohol-related escapades.  I wanted to drink and I wanted friends.  I would ask a friend to go to the bar with me but they were always broke. “No problem” I would say. “I’ll buy you a beer!”  As we all know, alcoholics never have one beer.  A typical night would consist of me financing the bar tab, which never sunk below $100.  Then we would need beer to take home after the bar closed, and a bagful of tacos to satisfy our “drunk munchies” as I used to call it.  Throw in cab rides and cover fees and you can see how easy it is to blow through five grand so quick.

Oh, how different life is today.  I have actual friends.  Friends that will hang around me for no reason other than to share a good laugh with me.  In fact, I get more invitations to simply sit down and have coffee than I can count.  People like me for me.  I don’t have to buy people's friendships today.  Some people like me and some people don’t, and that’s OK.  The most valuable thing I give and receive today is each other’s company.  I love those who surround me today.  No surprises, no cheating and stealing or lying.  I have been told water seeks its own level.  By surrounding myself with good people, I myself get a little better every day.

I do it because it works. 

I do it because I live a life of recovery.

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.

Drunkess™ does not endorse nor support any one kind of recovery path, it supports all forms of recovery if the path is healthy, positive, and leads to the light.
Drunkless™ is not affiliated with any other recovery entities, including, but not limited to, AA or any of it's affiliates and sister programs, recovery centers, sober active groups, hospitals, institutions, or law-enforcement agencies.
