It’s always bad news when a life is wasted. Even if it’s not bad news to have one less waste around.

Dude is just as hopeless an addict as I am.

The difference (so far, I still have hope for any addict if they still breath) is that I finally surrendered. I surrendered to my addiction and to the program of recovery. I even surrendered to God's will.

Surrendering is the most powerful thing you can do when it comes to stuff like this. Once you get out of the ring with Mike Tyson you can stop getting the s**t kicked out of you.

“Calamaro was considered one of Sheen’s closest friends and was reportedly present during Sheen’s infamous 36-hour drug binge in October 2010.”

Infamous? John Belushi’s binge was infamous. This was another weekend at the Sheen’s house.

I’ve been clean for a good decade myself.

There are still those moments when I think a beer or a joint sounds good but it’s easy to shake off after all this time.
