Anybody else struggling with living a sober lifestyle? I used to smoke weed and drink alchohol, but I quit everything a couple of years ago. Arguably I feel better than I ever have felt when I was using those substances, and obviously its better for my health.
But Ive noticed some clear social downsides. I used to be way more social and way more fun. Lately Ive noticed my friends dont even ask me when they go to the club or something. And even if I go I struggle having a good time.
Dating is another thing thats just worse now, it used to go a lot better with a few drinks. I just cannot seem to be confident and loose enough without it. This has led me to be single for quite a while now, while before I always used to have girlfriends. I also think they just generally think Im less fun because of my sober lifestyle. I know its superficial as fuck for them to think that way but thats just the way it is. Im really starting to reconsider wether its worth it.
And yes this is fitness and health related. Since living a completely sober lifestyle is the best thing you can do for gains.
