The Bipolar Addict
Drinks, Drugs, Delirium, and Why Sober Is the New Cool
We are punks. We are poets. Musicians and artists. Professionals and intellectuals. We are drunk. High. Manic. Depressed. We almost died. And now… we are stable and sober.
We are The Eccentrics – a fellowship of people hidden in our society. There are 5.7 million bipolar Americans and 60 percent of them are alcoholics. Bipolar addicts have the wildest stories. Even entertaining. This is a serious book, but there are moments described that will make you laugh out loud. We are in splendid company, from the historical to the contemporary. Edgar Allen Poe. Vincent Van Gogh. Kurt Cobain. Amy Winehouse. Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia). All bipolar. All addicts. For the afflicted and the addicted, for the survivors and their families, for the 60 million Americans touched by mental illness yearly, this galvanizing read of outlandish, enigmatic stories of survival offers new insights into a less familiar world – endlessly fascinating for anyone interested in understanding more about the human condition.
