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.

Home Sweet Home

By: DW (Guest Blogger)

Creeping in step by step. Sleepless, drunken breath weighs heavy in the morning air. It was a habitual war zone between sin and moral decency that robbed me of a “home sweet home.”

The pollution of red Solo cups scattered in rivers between the poisoned bodies across my living room floor; a maze I was destined to face every Monday morning.

The comfort of my bed used up by heaping strangers. My brothers – my mother – unconscious from a struggle against a ping pong ball and a pyramid of poison.

Every innocent inch of that creaking duplex taken up by the “mistakes” of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night.

My drowsy body curled upon the surface of a single dining room chair; finding salvation in the inch of cushion that rested below me. My heart, praying the mercy of God would wake me in time for school

A scared nine-year-old girl closed her eyes once more to the surrender of the life she was provided.

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.
