Asperger Syndrome (ASC) and Alcohol

Matthew Tinsley has a degree in Modern Languages and had a long career as a bookseller in independent bookshops. 

In this conversation Matthew explains how his alcohol addiction and his Asperger Syndrome Condition are linked.

After many years struggling with alcoholism and two failed marriages, he overcame his addiction - largely due to his self-awareness of his autistic spectrum condition, together with a long period in rehab using cognitive behavioural therapy.

Matthew has co-written a book with autism specialist, Sarah Hendrickx called Asperger Syndrome and Alcohol, Drinking to Cope.

If you are affected by addiction please speak to your GP or approach a local treatment service.
