Meeting new people can be scary to start wiht but you have te advantage of being together. have you thought about joining a club or society with people who share the same interest as you? Perhaps a sport, a craft or simply an interest. As for drinking, im glad you dont because alcohol is a depressant drug and many people do not know that. It completely reverses any benifit you get from anti-depressants!.
