Former BBC correspondent Caroline Turriff now writing about addiction and mental health for the Sunday Times, the Times, the Telegraph and the Guardian. Previously was writing a blog about her mishaps with men, mental health problems, journalism and drugs. Her assignments included: reporting from a barracks in Southern Sudan in a pair of hot pants, narrowly avoiding being possessed by a pig at a voodoo ceremony in Cuba and dropping acid with a bunch of Buddhist monks at a commune in California. The blog has had more than 22,000 hits in less than a year on WordPress and a US addiction website. It combines dark humour with sharp insights about addiction and mental health.
