I have battled with rapid cycling bipolar disorder and also I substance misuse (on and off) I think it's a way of me self medicating but it winds me up so much when I take the drugs I just can't help it though!

I believe my happier more confident times were spent high too! Just need to learn to cope and enjoy life like that without them as I was a little addicted here and there. I believe recreational use as long as controlledis fine, dont beat yourself up so much. Its just about having an escape, you just need to find it elsewhere if drugs aren't your thing

For me, addictions were like ticks on a dog. You don't want them sucking the dogs life blood, so you pull them off one by one.
