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.

Rule #62

By: AJ

Rules rules rules. So many rules. Don't stay out too late. Don't go over the speed limit. And how about the all famous golden rule? Do unto others as you want others to do unto you. They are all here for a purpose. Sure they keep us safe and civilized. But is there a rule for keeping us sane? As a matter of fact there is! It is called rule #62 It goes as follows: 

DON'T TAKE YOURSELF SO DANG SERIOUSLY!!

Life can be tough. Life can be hard, weird or all around troublesome. It can also be super wonderfully fantastic. The point is, I get myself so worked up sometimes over the most trivial of matters. My feelings are valid and I do not disregard how I feel, but I do need to keep a sense of perspective. I can obsess all day over something I wish I had or hadn't said. But when it comes down to it, things are always OK. Relax. Lighten up. So you were wrong. So things didn't go smoothly. Sometimes all you can do is smile, throw up your hands and remember-it's all good. Life goes on.

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.
