So we figured out alcohol is a HUGE if not the main trigger for my "crazy" episodes. My pdoc and parents both want me to give up the booze entirely but I can't and wont do it. I'm 21, exuse me JUST TURNED 21 years old and frankly I love drinking! I feel happy, outgoing, worry free, etc when i've had a few drinks. It's only happened a few times that i've "freaked out" and this is after being completelyyyyy inhiliated. I would LOVE to find a happy buzz place and learn to control my drinking... I think I can do it, I just haven't tried (or honestly really cared) enough to do so. They say you're not supposed to drink when your bipoloar because it can trigger episodes and also because it inteferes with meds but I seriously just can't see myself quitting alltogether. I guess why I made this post is to ask for your advice as to what I should do and also I was wondering who still drinks knowing you have BP, and who doesn't? If you don't, how hard was it for you to give up? Thanks :)
