How do I stop using alcohol as my main/only source of relaxation and recreation?

Also, is there a way to stop being excessively talkative? I literally never shut the fuck up.

stop purchasing alcohol?

learn to listen. i have a friend that never shuts the fuck up. i can't get a word in, always interrupts. he catches himself interrupting me and apologizes and says "i really need to work on that, sorry man." it's fucking annoying. if you just want to jerk off to your own voice then make a vlog or something.

I do listen, or at least I think I do, but nobody else ever seems to have anything to say. I don't interrupt. I don't know if I'm talking over anyone if nobody else is talking.

That bird is cute as hell.

Maybe try and ask direct questions? "How do you feel about that". Then listen.
Maybe people like to listen to you? I'm a listener and I love it when the other is more talkative.

I don't know. I'm always like "ok, this time I don't chat peoples' ears off" but always end up on a 3 hour lecture about covergent evolution.

You need to substitute another activity or hobby whenever you feel like drinking alcohol. Whenever you get the urge to drink, just go do your other hobby until the urge goes away.

If you don't know what other hobby to start, try carpentry.

How do I do carpentry socially?

What expression do people have when they're listening to you? Does it feel like they want to desperately get away? Are they following what you're saying and giving input every now and then?

>>16800863
how can I tell?
>>
>>16800928
By reading their facial expressions?
If that's too hard just ask, "sorry, is this boring?"
>>
>>16800940
I don't know how to read facial expressions that good. I'm mildly autistic. Hell, I have a few cousins I can only tell apart by the tattoos.

Is it socially acceptable to ask that? Would they tell me the truth?
>>
>>16800948
Ah, that makes it harder then. Most people can tell from social cues what a person really means but it's hard if you can't do that.
I don't know, man. You might need to look at a specific conversation guide for autistic people.
