Bipolar Linked To An Addictive Personality

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?

  1. Yes… got rid of the really bad ones (too embarrassed to say) and now on to gaming. I can also lose myself into books and ignore everyone for days. These are mild, I know, but I’ve learned to control my addictions as I know it can get a whole lot worse.
