8 years sober and looking for sober people to hang out with!

My name is Jason, I'm 8 years sober. It's been 8 years since I had a meaningful relationship. I hang out with my friends, who all drink. Recently, after 8 years I feel uncomfortable. I haven't hung out in the bars with them in 2 months. Feeling lonely now. Not depressed though, if that makes sense. I was wondering if I go to an aa meeting will help me. I was there once, but it was court ordered. It didn't me much to me then. If I go now will it help me become more social with people. I'd like to hear from some of you.

Hi Jason,
Meetings are a great place to meet people. Churches are too, if you go. Also, you could start going to a gym. Or you could think about volunteering somewhere! All of those places will be great for meeting new friends and I am sure you will find many who don't drink or who don't build their lives around drinking.
Good luck and check back in!

Another vote for meetings...I have gained many sober friends and have become aware of many more sober social events than I am able to attend. I am a bit of an introvert naturally, especially around people I don't know, but it was even easy for me to make friends :). AA peeps are kinda pushy in a loving way, so once I got beyond the "you people are stalkerish" mentality, I am glad they were, my life has been richer for it!
