Dual for Life, a new book by Kevin Duffy, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Bipolar disorder, alcoholism, and dual diagnoses are conditions Kevin Duffy has been living with for almost 25 years. His experiences are primarily good, sometimes bad, but all have been interesting. He has had moments where he felt he was fighting for his life or sanity. At last, he feels he has prevailed. He can think clearly and finally has a handle on his alcoholism.

Dual for Life is a true-life account of how these mental diseases twist together and ripped through one man's life. Drinking and drugs inflamed Duffy's bipolar mind and his bipolar mind inflamed his alcoholism. He has learned the only remedy comes from staying sober and taking medication. He does not worry much about the future, because if he remains honest with himself and others about his past and present internal battles, a peace of mind will be achieved.
