My brother and I are both bipolar one. He is mostly manic but crashes at this time every year. We go from talking at least twice a day and visit weekly, to him dropping off the face of the earth. He saunters back into my life when he chooses weeks, sometimes months. This has gone on for years. This time I am having great difficulty handling this. After every absence I explain how much this hurts and effects me and he promises to 'do better' next time and that never happens. I know I should be more understanding considering but I find as we are getting older it's more difficult. A physical health issure can happen and I don't want either of us leaving this world without each other. He is totally unreachable, doesn't even answer the door when I know he's home and I leave in tears. How does one cope with this? Advice much appreciated, thanks, Siren

I'm on day two with no cigarettes. I have nicotine gum but I haven't used it. I wasn't planning on quitting but I have no money to buy cigarettes so I am cold turkey. I'll probably cave when I get paid again and buy a pack but I'm the meantime, does anyone have any advice on how to fight the withdrawals? I know a few of you are former smokers so any tips or tricks?
