Unhappy Loneliness

The loneliness screams in my head.... I succumb to the yelling in my head. All I want is a friend... I try to keep busy, but when nighttime hits its overwhelming. My loneliness is most at night. Any tips?

I used to be lonely even with people around me. I did not feel a real connection. That went away eventually, but it was rough.


Now I have moved to be around my wife's family in a new state about 4 years ago. I do not have one single friend here. All I have is her famliy and I don't really have time for a friend as I work at least 12 hour days. I don't miss friends, but it is kinda sad when you look at it.

I'm sorry you're going this, I went through something similar about 2 years ago. I understand it's really overwhelming sometimes. I hope you're able to find something that helps and get through it.

Do you have any close connections? Im just wondering if your loneliness is from no close connections, or those few connections being unsatisfying in some aspects.

Either way, if it's a friend you need. You could try some friend or dating apps, or even here. I've seen two threads were the OP asks for friends, and a decent amount of people responded.

When you feel lonely like this go to more AA meetings. Did you know that a lot of alcoholics suffer from PTSD? This can make it harder to commit to staying sober and learning how to deal with your challenges instead of using the alcohol to get away from them. So, when you go to meetings you will have others around you that are also working on staying sober and slowly learning how to live their lives differently. Actually, it can help if you can also see a therapist too. A lot of people go to meetings at night for the same reason, being lonely at night.
