Hello all, I am new here and felt it might be valuable to share a thought I'd had recently. How do you know when a group of people are really friends you could spend time with doing almost anything, or just your drinking buddies? I've been sober to events and had these friends say "oh, you're so boring when you don't drink" but what's interesting is, I find them boring when they are drinking and I'm not. It's almost as if we were only friends in the first place to use alcohol and not to connect with each other, share common experiences, and participate in events and activities. Has anyone else experienced this?
