I just got off the phone with him. He’s really good at coming up with things to talk about. The only problem is he has a heavy accent, and it’s hard for me to understand him at times. But he lives alone too and was bored like I am.
He’s one of two friends who are older than me, but he’s only maybe three years older than me.
I guess I’m lucky that I have four friends though. Some don’t have any.
How old are you @Blueone65? With a 3 year difference, I wouldn’t call that person my older friend. As we age there isn’t nearly as much difference, unless it’s a really large age gap
I’m 62. I guess I shouldn’t call him older. I think he’s 65. I don’t talk as much to my younger friend in his 50’s.
Sounds like it’s a good thing for both of you. I have a few good friends left myself, I count them as blessings
All three of us go to the same psychiatric clinic. My older friend and I do AA. The younger guy does NA. My friend that goes to AA chairs the meeting and has been sober for years. I’ve only been sober four months.
Some good connections no doubt. I’ve been sober for 15 years now. But I do remember that first year being pretty tough.
It sounds like you’ve got good support in place, and that’s a major part of it being successful
The two women I’m friends with don’t have drug or alcohol problems, but they go to the same psychiatric clinic.
Congratulations on being sober for 15 years.
Yeah. You two really are the same age. I’m glad you’ve got friends. They’re not easy to find when you’re mentally ill
Well, all five of us have mental illnesses. We got to know each other in the clinic.
That’s how I met my best friend. It was at the mental health clinic. Nothing wrong with that!
It’s nice to talk to different people
I don’t have any friends, but I call family sometimes if I want to chat to people
