    I lost the group of friends I met during fresher's due to a couple of drunken mistakes, and now I am without any friends, I lost my gym buddy as she was one of those friends who no longer talks to me. The problem that I have is that I had a very rough upbringing and has weighed heavily on me, in the form of depression and anxiety. No one apart from my course mates and flat mates really talk to me. The loss of friendship group has made me feel vulnerable. How do I recover? How do I make new friends outside of freshers? How can I beat back the anxiety that weighs on my mind. I hate being alone as I love social interaction.

    Ditto for clubs and societies. At the end of the day, people aren't going to randomly know on your door. You are going to have to do the running. But why not start easy. Ask your flatmates to go out - or your uni course mates. Failing that - join a club and just keep turning up until people get to know you. The rest is then history. It can be done. I joined the mountaineering club at my uni after Christmas. I am still in touch with the people I met at that time 20+ years on!
