I just realized i have no non-pothead friends

i grew apart from 95% of my HS friends since graduating in ’04 and moving away for college.

the 5% that i still talk to on a semi-regular basis are stoners so i don’t want to hang out with them anymore now that i’m quitting smoking.

haven’t really made too many new friends on campus that aren’t stoners just because i wasn’t hanging around that type of person, a clean person, the person i used to be who was motivated and driven.

i quit cigs cold turkey 2/18, now quitting pot 4/18.

i’ve been dieting and exercising lately so i don’t really drink.

basically, the social life i had turned to shit overnight.

for those of you that have done a drastic turn around like i’m doing, how did you get back into what is looked upon as a "normal" life while still enjoying yourself?

I’m trying to get past a addiction, and get away from all my friends (99% use).

I started going to meetings, and was amazed at how many cool friendly people I met.

The biggest thing is to find sober people, and look for activities that sober people are at. I’m doing that now.. and it is a lot easier than I thought it would be.
that’s me right now but i find myself turned off almost immediately by the personalities of most sober people
i’m tryin to quit weed too.. and i just can’t see myself hangin out with people sober, for some reason i need to get high to have fun, but i’m tryin to work through that

sounds like an eye opener. I know lots of people who use weed say "Oh, we do other stuff besides sit around and get high all day"…but then I see posts like this, where it’s clear that once you quit, your friends are boring.

Go out, man. Get out, start doing stuff you like to do, even if it’s by yourself.
"People, places and things" dude. Also,I hate pot smokers. The vast majority of people I know who smoke pot are losers and use it as their only form of entertainment.

Its like "Dude, lets go bowling", to which they answer "After this bowl", and then they end up eating gyros and farting all night instead of going bowling.

Also, I think weed is addictive psychologically.
