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.

Choice Decisions

By: DL

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's true, that we are what we decide.  Not only are we shaped by the very things that we say to ourselves, both internally and externally, but by the very things that we decide to do... or not do.

Decisions. I make them everyday, but only a few are as important as the one I make first thing in the morning, and that's to not drink.  Once I've made that choice, I recognize that I cannot comply with that decision unless I have help. So equally as important, I make contact with my Higher Power as soon as I sit up.

Those two choices will help guide me through my day, create my destination, and guide me to being the person I am destined to be. And with more decisions throughout the day, I will find myself back at my bedside, happy that I had made most of them; thankful that I've found some serenity with the things I could not change; grateful I could find the courage to change the things I did; and appreciative of the wisdom I found to know the difference.

Today, because of the decisions I've made, I am on a journey to reach an unknown destination, a destination that I will shape through the choices I make and the lessons I'll learn; a destination that will surely be no where as bad as the one I came from.

Because I made a choice; the decision to not die.

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.
