Are you addicted to spending time with your friends?


We thought that we would share this amusing article from the British Psychological Society (BPS) asking whether you may be addicted to spending time with friends? In recovery it’s vital to expand your social networks to include people who not only you enjoy spending time with but just as importantly, is also practising their lifestyle as you would like to/are living yours. We know that addiction causes us to become introvert and our social circles only involve dealers, off-licences or shops, sourcing money from this you know you can get it from. In early recovery it’s important to soak up the positive atmosphere you can find with other addicts who are abstinent and working a program (NA, AA, CA) and develop new friendships, try new and exciting experiences or maybe even take up a new hobby or interest? After all, anytime spent in the company of happy, content recovering addicts working a program and taking each day one day at a time and not actively using or drinking is time well spent and will pay back dividends in the long run!
