Bipolar disorder and substance abuse have a huge comorbidity.
Well I'm sure there are numbers all over, but I just read an estimate that about 45% of those Dx with Bipolar Disorder also have AUD. That leaves just over half who don't. So there's that.

In any event, I'm glad you quit drinking. That is number one, if you are to effectively address anything else.
