"Joseph, I assume from one of your other posts that you've left school and haven't gone to sixth form? I know when you've first left school finding friends can seem a bit daunting but it needn't be. You need to create a lifestyle…"

"You said you where out of High School. When and where do you meet up with them.  If it is after hours, plan other things to do.  Change the places you hang out.  When they ask to meet up have other plans and don't tell them…"

How do I leave a bad group of friends?

I'l give you guys a bit of a back story, right now i'm at a point in my life where the only friends I have take advantage of me and even thought I help them every day they never do anything in return. I am sick of this situation, and I just want to leave this group of friends and never see them again. The problem is I have literally no other friends and where I live there isn't that many places to make new friends. What do you guys think I should do? Thanks in advance.See More
