Switching social circles after recovery??

3 posts in this topic

I don't know about you guys but adderall made me feel content being alone. Like i did not have close personal relationships except with my pill bottle. I have fully isolated myself during this recovery because as you all know the depression all to well, i do not have any brain power to keep my socializing up. As i am starting to have some energy some days I am starting to think about the friends i could rekindle with.....the problem being they are all adderall takers as well.. living that high speed life that I just can't maintain anymore. I am going to have to rethink every single relationship i had because I am now seeing they were based off us both being crackheads. how the hell do you meet people these days???? Did you have to switch social circles after getting sober?? I feel like i am in a different place than anyone I know. I live in LA & everyone is on something i swear. I guess I am just going to have to start by putting myself out there and hope I attract the right kind of people... gonna be hard without my little pill of courage.

I guess the good news is that I am actually craving human connection something that I didnt really need or care or as long as I had adderall

Man I relate to this sooooo much.  And you know what's funny...  somehow I haven't linked my weight gain to stopping adderall!  wtf?!  LOL.  I cannot believe I didn't connect those two.  I used to be bulimic and adderall is what got me to stop binging (like 15 years ago) and I've recovered from my eating disorder since then (I had 8 years sober before) but i literally didn't connect those 2 this time.  (I'm on day 9 lol!)  Oh well...  what I know is that I'd rather have my body than be dead and not have one at all.  How is it going with the friend thing?  The first time I got sober I was in AA so I made new friends in there... this time I'm married with 4 kids so that keeps me busy... and I have some friends from work who are also therapists so I can turn there...  I do feel like I don't know how to meet new people sober though -- bc it seems like everyone i meet is on something.
