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.




Deadly Illusion

By: Michael Barr

I have some feelings I need to release before I can ever rest in peace.
Anger, frustration, rage, and confusion. I've wrapped myself
in a deadly illusion.
Sadness and pain are gripping my heart. Don't know how to express
it or where to start.
I sit here and lash out at all of my peers, too scared to to be seen
letting go of some tears.
Trying to be cool and shit sticking around. What I have
to do is settle myself down.
I'll think about what I need to do to finally let my
feelings get through.
I've bottled them in and pressed them in tight. I know they
wont leave without a fight.
I need to let this side of me go, but my release of emotions
will have to be slow.
For if I let all of them go right here, I will lose my mind and
hurt all those near.
I know it's a stupid mental block, I guess I need to change
my self talk.
I need to tell myself', "don't be afraid", this mental block is
something I made.
Which means that I can take it apart, even though it may
break my heart.
I've got to get rid of my held in feelings before I can stop
my criminal dealings.
I've got to let out all of my pain, It will only be for my personal gain.
I think I can really do it this time, and permanently end
my life of crime.
I'll go back home to my family and friends. this is my start,
we'll see where it ends.

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.
