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.




When in doubt... use the SECRET

By: DL

Well, I blew it. I always knew this day would come. It was just more than I had expected it to be, and I broke...

"Wait, what?"

NO! No no no! I'm still sober!  Holy crap! No, I'm stone-cold sober! Yikes!

What I mean is, I forgot my blog was due last night! Oi. I simply forgot that it was due. I sat in the house thinking, "Man, I strangely have a lot of free time. How weird. What am I to do with all of this?"

With a POP! I woke up this morning and knew I'd completely missed my deadline.  ugh.  It was bound to happen, I was just hoping that our site would be a year old first.

I've been sitting here for thirty minutes, wondering what I would do about this.  moping about how I'd done nothing and I was failing my task.  Mind you, I've missed in the past before, when I was doing the Nearly-Daily blog posts, but that was daily, so one would expect that a day or two might be missed.  But since I went to the once per week thing, I didn't want to miss any.  But I did.

How am I going to fix this? I have to leave to go to my regular job in less than ten minutes, and I am SOOOOOO FAR BEHIND! The pressure is on, and I am feeling a little stressed to say the least... and then it occurred to me:

I mean, duh.  DUH! duh.  So here I am, just getting started.  I am getting started and moving forward with my day, with an unusual blog for me, but I think this is an important lesson, nonetheless.

So really, I guess I didn't entirely miss my deadline.  Just, well -- sorta.  Okay, I missed it, but I'm moving on!

If you're not sure where to start out on your day, or that project, or how to ask the question or tell your story -- just get started.  After all, isn't that how we all got sobered up, more or less?

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.
