Alcoholism and Mental Health – Episode Eleven The Bipolar Writer Podcast

This is one of those episodes that makes me happy as it is just me, the mic, the ideas in my head, and you, the audience. On January 1st, 2021, I recommitted to my sobriety after losing five years after my mother’s death. Alcoholism has a history in my life, and I discuss how it came into my life, how it is not great to mix alcoholism with mental illness, how I used alcohol as a coping mechanism, and so much more. What I want from these episodes is to learn through my own experiences, and if it reaches one person, then that is okay. I have done what I set out to do.

  1. Hey 🙂
    I wish i never used alchohol when i did so much in the past as a coping mechanism and even when i started medications.
    I got into trouble with the law because i was mixing them and was rarely happy.

  2. I applaud you for speaking your truth about how alcohol has played a part in your life. I look at it as gaining wisdom, you haven’t lost anything, it’s merely a footnote of the continous journey we are all on in life. I used and abused alcohol along with my medications, definitely a learning lesson that gambled with my own life. These steps all serve. We are always left with choices and from those choices the consequences. Thank you for being do transparent James, it helps everyone! Peace, joy and love to you 🙏
