Video After The Jump
Charlie Sheen sat down with the Today Show this morning and let it all hang loose. He talks about drug abuse, AA, his kids, his fight against CBS and much more.
Really this has to be seen to be believed, but here are a few highlights.
TS: You say you cured yourself of addiction, you don't need Alcohol Anonymous, how did you do that?
CS: I closed my eyes and made it so - with the power of my mind. Had to unload 22 years of fiction and I just decided I don't need that anymore, and I know my own truth and that's what I stand on right now.
TS: Did you turn to alcohol and other substances because you were bored?
CS: No I did that because they work!
TS: Work to do what?
CS: Just change the way you see things, the way you feel. And yeah when you're a little bit bored with the redundancy of certain aspects of your life.... Yeah I think that's why people do them
TS: You've been to AA before, this time you did in home rehab. First of all what is that? And why did it work do you think this time?
CS: Well we couldn't really call it rehab because we didn't have a license to operate one so it was a crisis management center that we labeled the Sober Valley Lodge.
TS: You've told CBS you're at war with them now.
CS: Oh yeah, we're definitely at war.
TS: What's the war?
CS: Well the war is that they are trying to destroy my family and so I take great umbrage with that, and defeat is not an option. They picked a fight with a warlock.
TS: Strong people have relapsed
CS: Fools, trolls, weak, defeated. They allowed defeat to be an option, I will not.
TS: You ever missed a day of work?
CS: Not a day that cost anybody money. I missed practice, we're talking about practice. to quote the great Allen Iverson.
