Overall, of course, some of us are more sociable, and some are happier on their own and enjoy their own company. Sometimes one WANTS to be sociable but feels so anxious in social situations that one stays along, but longs to be in the group, and then proper treatment for social anxiety, by meds and CBT counselling, can help a great deal.
But you talk of having had friends, and then alienated them all - how did you manage to do that ? Sometimes palds drift apart, with no hard feelings, but you say you ALIENATE them.
There's an odd modern delusion that its normal and somehow required behaviour to party as often as possible - not so. Some very normal people never like doing that, some like it and then grow out of it, and some never seem to grow up.
Have you tried forming friends with people who share your interests other than noisy drinking parties ? Party people don't tend to get into conversations, as they'd have to shout too loudly. Don't you or can't you, get to meet other mothers actually interested in their kids ? Or people at work ( if you also work outside the home ) or with similar interests and hobbies ?
How sad if at his age and after fathering 2 kids, your husband is still so immature that he feels there's something wrong with you for not boozing like him and his boys.
Sounds like you're surrounded by immature and boring people who are disappointed you're not equally immature and boring. Dont blame yourself for not being like that - be proud of being a better parent, and lok to develop more worthwhile areas of your life
