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.




Perfectionism: A Dangerous Flaw of the Mind

A boundary so thick and impenetrable such as this, stops the paths to many successful futures. It cuts off the blood line to your chamber of curiosity, your room for mistakes, and your ability to love fully. It denies you your right to be human. It takes over your ability to follow social norms, your mental health, & your nights of forgotten sleep. It steps in as the new you, the only you, or as society might put it, “The better you”. Let me put it into perspective. Picture your heartbeat swelling, pulsating rapidly, as if it’s squeezing out every ounce of air your lungs struggle to salvage. Why is it beating so hard? Why are you short of breath? Oh, I see… It’s because you know your rough draft wasn’t the best it could be, right? Or is it because someone just asked if you needed any help? They couldn’t possibly see that you’re struggling could they? It’s alright. Just put on that pretty little smile & tell them you’ve got it; they shouldn’t worry too much after that. Actually, just back away from people until you can get those flaws under control. Careful though. Too much time spent alone in your head might result in damage -- physical damage. End Scene. That’s just a short glimpse into the mind of a Perfectionist. The power of perfectionism over some people is not a “useful quality” and needs to be reassessed. Long story short, perfectionism is a Hallmark Card in the shape of a pistol with a trigger that says “Pull Me”.

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.
