Newbie looking to meet sober friends


Hi, I am 1 year sober from alcohol. I have found it difficult to hang out with old friends where I did some of my drinking . I feel disconnected and alone . Just looking for friends as I have a same sex partner for 11 years. I got a 7 year old boy.

Welcome Val! I can relate to your predicament. I actually have a wedding next Fri and have dreaded going for well over a month. You are not alone in your struggles!
