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.

Never Forget

By: DL

Sometimes we motivate ourselves by thinking of what we want to become.
Sometimes we motivate ourselves by thinking about
who we don’t ever want to be again.
— Shane Niemeyer

Isn't that the truth.  Just this morning, I began to question whether or not I was an alcoholic.  Ya, funny, I know.  But it actually crossed my mind.  And at the moment, Left Side and Right Side were making sense.  I mean, I could pick out all sorts of differences between "me" and "them."  There's a lot, believe me.

But as the arguments continued, it started to get dark.  I could barely see my hands through the fog. Things became surreal and I was no longer where I needed to be. And therein lies the beauty of my recovery.

I NOTICED.

I began to realize that my thinking was unclear, and I recalled how hellacious my life had been, how the Beast had its grips in me once, tearing me apart, and I could do nothing to keep it away from me.  I recalled all of the devastation and hopelessness and worthlessness and loss that covered my life in darkness.

And then, I remembered the Hope.  The Light that lit my way and brought me to this place of (mostly) peace and serenity; and the fog cleared up.  I would make it through this morning.  I would make it through this day.  I just had to remember what it was like then, what I didn't want, in order to move out of where I was headed; to gain what it was that I truly wanted.

It is so true that I can never forget where I came from.  Many times it helps me be who I want to be, because I remember who I don't want to return to being again.

Namasté

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.
