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.

This time of day

BY: DL

It's that time of day again...

... yep. That time of day.  Know what I like about this time of day?

I woke up.

I'd like to ask, "How often does one just find themselves waking up on a daily basis?"  That question may seem odd to the normie, but to the recovering alcoholic/addict -- it's a freakin' miracle.

I love this time of day these days.  When I was active in my alcoholism/addiction, I absolutely dreaded waking up!  I would get down right angry about it.  I was afraid to face the sunlight and all the glory that the world would partake in as I watched, miserably, the joys and laughters I had not felt since a very young child.

I was blessed with an ending yesterday that I hadn't in a while.  I didn't want to go to my meeting, but strangely was being held accountable (the program tends to have that effect on us), and what a great meeting it was, I really needed that.  Immediately afterwards, I was invited to do some serious service work, where I walked out with a number to a struggling young man at just 72 hours of sobriety.  To boot, I got to hang out with one of my besties, HW, a person I always enjoy hanging out with. We've planned a camping trip in the near future.  I can't remember the last time I went camping without a family member (I think I was 23 back then -- maybe).

And this morning, tired as I am, I plant my feet on the ground first thing and I thank my higher power for these moments.  I AM SOBER.  I am alive.  I am now doing what I had once thought was not possible.  I am doing what I once thought the only answer to was death.  I am doing.  Period.

I like this time of day. More and more.

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.
