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.




The Birth of My First Blog

By: Tami Harper Winn

In my infancy I realize that I am navigating through the world of blogging without the social media motor skills necessary to take off running. As I grow stronger I anticipate that so will my blogging efforts and I will begin to blossom and grow into the budding writer I was born to be.

I will feel my way around this obstacle course, probably pick up a few things and put them in my proverbial mouth only to choke on them and hopefully live to tell the story. Eventually I will figure out how to crawl, then walk, then run. Either way, like everyone that has come before me, I will grow no matter what.

Chances are that I will evolve into a testy toddler, curious child, rebellious teenager, and know-it-all young adult throughout the course of this. One day, I will be all grown up and perhaps even considered an elder worthy of respect in this arena. I imagine that it will be a journey worth taking.

I plan to put my training pants on one leg at a time, put one foot in front of the other, and bump into a lot along the way. I figure I will get scraped up, have a pretty good bruised ego, and probably have some lasting scars to show off. But I will survive. I know this, because I have accomplished the greatest feat imagined. I have not had to take a drink today.

I know my peers will judge me accordingly, as expected. I know that my mentors and teachers will provide me with valuable learning tools to use. My grading curve will be large and I will probably disappoint myself more than anyone else when I don’t “make the grade.” I am a realist.

So as I try on my new identities, as I know from life experience I will, I will certainly become part of the “fun to watch club.” Just sit back, grab a bag of popcorn, pull up you laptop and be ready to Siskel and Ebert this blogger. Let the credits roll.

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something."

 Neil Gaiman

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.
