You'll need to get off your butt and try to make some more friends. The sooner you do, the easier it will be. The longer you stay isolated the harder it is to socialize again. Don't feel too bad, I only have three good friends that I seldomly hang out with anymore. That happens naturally as you get older. People grow up, go their own way and have their own families to attend to most of the time. Get-togethers and parties can be planned sure, but everyone needs to fit that schedule.>>45146
If you are a TV, internet or video game junkie that can happen. Your brain is addicted to instant artificial stimulation. That is exactly the reason most kids today do not go outside to play anymore. They become addicted to their gadgets and screens all day instead of going outside make-believing they're sheriffs and deputies duking it out with the bad guys like we used to do when we were young.>>45147
Ironic you haven't started drinking, as that's what drunks typically do, lay around all day feeling sorry for themselves. It's a good thing you are not an alcoholic. My suggestion would be to find something that interests you that you can do offline. Heck, try gardening if you have some space in your backyard. Or you could do some firearm research and save up for a gun that you'd be comfortable with shooting at the local range (some places will let you rent them for $20 per hour to shoot but you still need to buy the ammo). You could start with .22LR, then try 5.7x28mm and .32 caliber, both lower recoil and more practical to train with. Work your way up over time to the bigger bore ammo like 10mm and .45 ACP. It's something fun to look into anyway, don't knock it until you try it, many people do but when they actually do get to shoot some guns they end up loving it.
