I am Bipolar 1 and drink more than i should. I used to be so bad that i had to seek treatment at a lockdown detox facility. This was after hurricane Katrina and i was off meds, evidently self medicating with alchohol. Now, a year and a half later, i still drink, but by no means to the degree previously. Does anyone else do this? Also i have been experience lost time, regardless of the amount of alchohol consumed. Its not just hazy memory, the time is just not there. It never comes back. Ive been through many \"lost weekends\" but this feels different. No hangoveres, bloodwork is seemingly normal. but my wife tells me the difference is like Jekyl and Hyde. I am a bit confused. i have tried abstinence, and not being able to drink in principle makes it almost unbearable not to drink.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
