Might be a wakeup call for Charlie.
It’s always bad news when a life is wasted. Even if it’s not bad news to have one less waste around.
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 Sheens closest friends and was reportedly present during Sheens infamous 36-hour drug binge in October 2010.”
Infamous? John Belushi’s binge was infamous. This was another weekend at the Sheen’s house.
You and me, both, FRiend. Isn’t life nice again without all that baggage and pain? Happy Independence, Laz!
Congratulations! It’s certain.y an easier, gentler life isn’t it? God willing I will celebrate 16yrs sober on Sept. 5th
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.
God bless you Laz for your ability to make the decision to turn your life around, for your commitment to it, and for your witness for our Lord and His Hand in your life. Have a wonderful July 4th!
Now if you could just surrender the Hit’n on Girls Thang
Celebrating 9 years December 26
