Hi Slayer! My advice would be to give it a few months as an experiment and see how it feels. That's what I did... and for the first few weeks, I still felt out of it and unfriendly while sober (it's different for all of us, for some people that part lasts a few days). Anyway by now, for the first time in a really long time I'm actually open and friendly while sober. It's only been two months sober! I really wasn't expecting such a change so quickly.
When I started I didn't even think about whether I wanted to do this forever, I just agreed with myself to give it a chance and see what it would be like. Now I find I really like being sober, surprisingly.
