I find myself compelled to read pieces on all the various interviews with Charlie Sheen, the whopper apparently being the TMZ interview. I usually avoid reading this stuff but I felt compelled to tune in because I’ve lost a couple of people dear to me to drugs and alcohol.
There’s that sense that people get that they are invincible when they are hooked in deep with drugs and alcohol and Charlie Sheen lays it all out right here:
Sheen, known as a bad boy in Hollywood, opened up about his past drug use, saying the last time he used drugs he “probably took more than anybody could survive [on].”
“I was banging seven-gram rocks and finishing them, because that’s how I roll,” he said. “I have one speed. I have one gear. Go.”
Sheen described himself as superhuman, citing a “different constitution,” “different brain” and “different heart” than normal people that allowed him to survive such extreme bouts of drug use.
“I got tiger blood, man,” he said. “My brain….fires in a way that is — I don’t know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”
When asked if he worries about dying from drug binges, Sheen quipped, “dying’s for fools.” He went on to explain his set of “rules” when he took drugs, which included avoiding certain blends that brought others down.
“There’s certain blends I will not entertain because this [is] how people go down. I’m too smart to do that,” he said. “I’m sorry for the guys that that happened to, but, you know, you should have read the directions before you showed up at the party.”
Too sad… He’s got some very serious issues… just saying… and that is an understatement. In my opinion, he’s on a train… running full speed off the rails. Good luck Charlie.
