I have had Bipolar for many moons. I have talked about the ups and downs of the condition but one thing popped into my mind today, addiction, I believe I have an addictive personality and it’s related to my bipolar.

Now I am no expert in mental health. So I am putting this out there to see if anyone else can relate.

I find myself easily addicted to alcohol or pain killers. If I have one beer, I need more and more. With the pain killers I just seem to take them everyday for the slightest reason.

Does anyone else with Bipolar have an addictive personality, if so what are you addicted to?
