I was a pretty good drinker. Self medicating, I suppose. Now I rarely have a drink because when it's mixed with the meds, I get all messed up.

But I miss it, to be truthful.

There is a help group called dual diagnosis, and I think it deals with just that; BP and alcoholism.

in my opinion, you need to deal with the addiction first, bp 2nd. the addiction screws up treatment for bp. i could be go wrong though
