I mostly lost my old friends with whom I shared the drug-lifestyle. I'm still in contact with them but the mutual connection we shared has been lost. Beside that I had troubles making new friends but right before Covid hit the world I started to make more friends at university beside my best friend. I was open about my past addiction problems because I wasn't drinking alcohol and I somehow had to explain myself and I thought I also could tell the truth. I already came from a place of being isolated, exhausted, etc. so I still managed to find new friends under those circumstances but it was a real effort and socialising was actually a burden. This has changed and it no longer feels like a burden as my social anxiety drastically reduced. Being in a transition phase in life where your interests and view on the world changes is often accompanied by a loss of old friends, combine this with a pandemic, the need to isolate myself because my father is a risk patient and very very dark days for nearly a year really does something to you.
