She moved further with her age, and at the age of 21, she was a complete drug addict of Cocaine and LSD. The stories about her addictions are covered in a book Postcards from the Edge, which later turned into a movie with Meryl Streep playing the lead character.

In 1985, Carrie was diagnosed being bi-polar.

After she had turned sober, Carrie decided to become an advocate for mental health. Putting her Hollywood career aside, she decided to write books like Surrender the Pink, Wishful Drinking and et al. She didn't appear in any Hollywood movie after that except for 2015's Star Wars franchise The Force Awakens only to Princess Leia once again on the silver screen.
