Recently I have been spending money recklessly and using drugs a lot, I have also been shirking a lot of my responsibilities. Also I have been lying a lot. I have been feeling quite happy and confident however I don’t believe I have had a reduced need for sleep. Is this a hypomanic episode?
Thanks in advance for your support.

I never had a reduced need for sleep with my manias so it very well may be.

Only a professional can determine whether you are bipolar or not.

I have never had a drug problem but I have had spells of mania where I spend too much money and I get impulsive.

Best way to find out would be to contact your Healthcare provider and go from there. It's quite complex and there's multiple questions to answer and then studied to determine the diagnosis.
