Good for you, Snoopy!

Good for recognizing that change is needed. That's an important decision to make. It's not fun to be doing the same things with the same people when we're in recovery.

My advice- Volunteer.

I was blessed to get into an amazing volunteer position in very early recovery. I met some of the most amazing women I have ever known during the 8 years I did that. Volunteering gives you a chance to meet people in a non-drinking environment and to give back to your community. It helped my self-esteem enormously.
