My 200TH Hub Dedicated To My Friends
Losing Friends and Meeting New Ones
I have lost many of friends after I decided to change my life around and become clean and sober. These friends left my life because I stop drinking alcohol. So, I ask, were these true life long friends? I believe not. We only had one thing in common and that was drinking alcohol.
My 200th Hub is dedicated to my friends, my friends here on HubPages. I am celebrating one year writing here on HubPages and writing this hub, which is number 200.
I have met many wonderful people here and learned to be able to write I think, some good content on my experiences on drinking alcohol and ways that I have learned on my own how to get clean and sober.
I have written these articles in hopes that just maybe one hub will hit home to someone in our world that is addicted to alcohol and has no way of knowing how to find his/her sobriety.
I am not a Doctor or a Therapist. I only write on what has helped me become sober and I write from my heart, so I hope over this past one year writing here on Hubpages I have helped someone find their sobriety, and if I did touch your life in anyway please drop me a comment or email me because I would really love to hear how you became sober and how my writing helped you.
My HubPages Friends
Over the past year, I have found many new friends here on HubPages and many interesting hubs and awesome writers. I could go on for ever naming these great writers, but in particular there are a few people that I have met in the forum (Last to post is the winner) in the Sandpit.
I met them in this forum one year ago and we have stayed in contact each and everyday since. In the beginning, when the forum started there were many people, but as time past they moved on to other forums of just said they have had enough of this particular forum.
In the meantime, some of us stayed and continue to say good morning to each other. We always say good niight to each other. We try to help each other if there happened to be a situations in ones life that they wanted to get advice on or just vent to each other.
For myself, I have shared a good part of my life with these hubbers and they have done the same sharing with me. We all became to be great friends through HubPages and I truly wish that someday the eight of us will be able to meet in person, which would be the most awesome thing in the world. I don't know if that would ever happen, but in the meantime we stay close to each other through the Internet and here on Hubpages.
Here are the people that have been by my side as true friends and ones that I have learned to trust and I have learned to Love just as my family. http://hubpages.com/profile/klarawieck
So there we have it. These are the wonderful people I have grown to love here on HubPages. If anyone one of us have a problem or a concern or a question about anything, each of these people are there to listen, help and give advice to each other.
They are all the best and I love them all dearly.
Thank you all for being there for me and best of all, for being true friends. All of you have helped in my quest for sobriety and all of your comments to my hubs truly touched my heart and I just wanted to let all of you know how much I appreciate everything.
Mark, (Marky) (The Clean Life)
