Sober for eight years, Mark said that during his active addiction, he was "addicted to things that would affect my mood." He identified alcohol, cocaine, and marijuana as his primary substances but says that even now "I still experience addiction everyday." He continued, "I'm hooked on what makes me feel good. I knew this was a sure sign that it was time to take my work public." I asked Mark what type of reactions he has received from his blog.

For that reason, I try to surround myself by worthwhile endeavors."I asked Mark, why a blog? "The online recovery community has been a great means of support. Liv’s Recovery Kitchen Olivia Penelle is a UK-based blogger who described food as her first drug.

Politics, sewing, religion, hobbies, lifestyle choices (mommy blogs, vegetarians, athletes, etc.), and just about anything else you can think of.

And if you think of one that is not out there, or you just want to add your voice to the chorus, you can start a simple blog without a great deal of high-tech training.

Often the sites almost sound like intimate conversations the writer is having with themselves or a loved one and I, the reader, am eavesdropping.

I tried to get a few things published, and with the exception of a few poems in online journals, no one bit." Mark had a great deal of support from his family and said, "My wife bought me a book on 'how to blog' for Christmas.

His musings on addiction and recovery (as well as his poetry) are deeply genuine and touching. Also for Christmas, my mom and stepdad bought me the domain name for the site to inspire me to keep at it.

I realized that after 16 years of sobriety, I still had a lot to learn about both sobriety and recovery, and I was taken by the idea that if I couldn’t help those I loved I’d at least share my experience with others." Chris said the site has "absolutely" been a part of his own recovery process.
