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.

Autumn has arrived!

by abbiegrrl

I love this time of year! It reminds me of bonfires, hot apple cider, and jumping into giant piles of leaves. I love getting to finally break out the sweatshirts and sweaters. I even like it when the tip of my nose gets super cold! This week has been...different. I'm trying to get used to working later hours than I'm used to, but I think I'm getting adjusted. My younger son brought home a GOOD report card this week, and my Hubby found a TV for the boy to play his games on. ☺ On the other hand, a woman I'd gotten close to, a Sponsor/friend, decided to take her addiction to another level. She texted me "I need help", and I encouraged her to go to detox. She hasn't gotten back with me. I wish I could help her, but the reality is that she's just been in a drawn-out cycle of using and then taking a day, or maybe a few days off, and then continuing the downward spiral...lower and lower. I hope every day to hear that she's checked in somewhere. Of course, odds at this point are against her getting clean...but we beat the odds on the reg, don't we?

Saturday Morning Gratitude

  1. The temperatures are finally lower, and it feels like Heaven!
  2. My son's doing better, academically and socially, at school.
  3. I enjoy the new job, and most of the people I work with.
  4. Starting to put together a possible plan for my Mom to come visit over Christmas.
  5. Just for today, I trust my Higher Power. Everything is gonna be all right.

That's all from this girl. How's your week been?

Be Positive. Be Compassionate. Be Love. Be Spiritual. Be Life. Just BE.

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.
