My adult son is going on almost 2 weeks sober. Doing it on his own, realized again he screwed up his finances, etc. Said he doesn't want to live like this anymore. He is not near us but across the country. Relationship failed sending him down again but he seemed to have found another "friend" that is a girl and has been communicating with her every night. We tried to encourage him to go to meetings and get with his sponsor once a week. He is doing well at work and should be getting a raise soon. He called the other night and my husband asked about male friends and my son said he doesn't get along with males.. He lives alone so all he has is going to work and talking on the phone to the new girl he started talking to that doesn't live near him. I guess I just don't understand why he is so against meeting new people, going to the gym, etc. Anyone else have a young man like this? I know change has to come on his part. He has to be the one to decide to reach out. Just hard to sit back and not understand why he won't take those steps and meet male friends so he would have someone to talk to and do things with on the weekends. I know he had a male friend last year and that man stole from him twice so I understand he was burned by that friendship. Still, he could go to a sober gym and hang out or something. Any thoughts?
