I'm so bored at parties and nights out without alcohol. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going back to drinking. I quit for good, and I plan to keep a promise of sobriety I made to a good friend. It's just that, I realize now that without alcohol there's very little point or fun in parties or the like. I don't know what to do, let alone how I will take the edge off my anxiety. Don't suggest weed, I'm not going to take a hit before I show up to a kid's b-day party.

Are you wanting suggestions for other substances instead? I dont quite understand what you want from us. Have you tried kava kava, either in 00 capsules or in tea form? How about kratom dry leaf in 00 capsules (kratom deserves much more respect than any others I mention)? Unfortunately, you would be a bad candidate for benzos or GHB analogues, so don't try those.

There's not that many choices out there if you've already written off cannabis. Maybe you should avoid environments that tempt you to drink? Going to a boozy drug party where everyone else is drunk and even the DDs are a bit buzzed doesn't really make any sense if you're sober IMO. You'll likely kill the vibe for them, as well as feel out of place yourself. Nobody likes playing the douche who insists playing beer pong without even drinking themselves.

Dont get me wrong, it's great you're living a sober life, but maybe look into social events that include mostly sober people?

Tell that to my family

I'm open to alternative drugs that won't make me a vomiting mess. But mostly I'm just looking for a way to make these social events more appealing. Drugs are an easy way to accomplish that.
>you should avoid environments that tempt you to drink
I'm not really tempted, but thanks for the concern.
>Going to a boozy drug party...
I can't NOT socialize. I want to spend time outside of the internet. It's just tempting not to now that booze is no longer involved.
>look into social events that include mostly sober people
These are family or friend events, and I'm not the party planner 99% of the time. Also, don't fucking suggest meetup shit. I went to at least a dozen events from five different groups and they were all shit. I live in Los Angeles, so don't try to claim the shit events are due to a lack of population.

Try microdosing. It helps with social situations and keeps you on point. It brightens your mood and makes things much more interesting. Also, it's affordable, safe and fun. 25ug of acid for me is perfect for most situations. Which is heavy for a microdose but I'm really familiar with it. A half gram of shrooms also puts me at the same level.

I dont know what to tell you man. Those of us in recovery put recovery first above everything else, such as convincing ourselves we [need/i] to go to a toddler's birthday party where the parents just get drunk the entire time.

I dont know how old you are, but have you considered casual sports like frisbee golf? Or putt putt golf?

I cant recommend drug replacements until you make clear what your intentions are. Do you only care about no blacking out and puking everywhere? It's probably been around 7-8 years since I puked from drinking, and I have an average of maybe 30 servings per month these days.

Have you tried gabapentin/pregabalin/phenibut?

You don't choose to be an addict, but you choose to be in recovery. You're choosing not to be in recovery.

Have you tried World of Warcraft: Classic?
It's a great drug you can get hyped up on before going to the party.

Perhaps some lemon & lime in your water?

DO NOT GET MESSED UP IN KRATOM ITS LIKE DIET HEROIN.
I am addicted to this stuff if you have an addictive personality/adhd/ something like that i would advise against kratom unless you are literally dopesick.
its insidious how addictive and easy to get it is

Absolute truth here. Kratom withdrawal caught me out big time before! And it then pushed me back in the proper Opi scene again after a while. Went from Kratom to Heroin very quickly last relapse! Over a year after 'quitting' the H I'm still taking 6mg a day Bupe to be well. All legit and scripted btw, so I'm starting to heal my mind by avoiding all the dodgy crap that comes with using
