    I watch part of a interview Charlie Sheen did on CNN last night with Pierce Morgan and he did not seem unstable or on the brink at all to me.I am sure this doctor is a good doctor but the last thing in the world I would want to do is go on his show and air my rehab crap for the world to see. And plus I do not think he has any right diagonising anyone unless he has actualy treated them.I think the only thing wrong with him is that people need to leave him alone and stop critizing him all the time.

    Good God, get real girls…Unless you have lead a life with someone who is an alcoholic and or addicted to other things too, you cannot blame his problems that he’s having on the media being “up in his business” !! This is the life he wanted and the media goes with the job. He knew this going into it. He grew up in this world. He is clearly addicted to alcohol and if there are other things he’s doing than whatever. But
    I do know how an alcoholic acts and he clearly exhibits everything that I grew up with. I have always loved watching him on his show, he is hilarious. I do feel bad that he has so many problems and it is too bad that they are broadcasted publicly. I will continue to watch his show in re-runs and I hope and pray that he can get his stuff together and come back stronger than ever.

    So sorry to read about Mike Starr this a.m. He was annoying as hell in the beginning of his CRw/DDrew season but by the end he really grew on me. We don’t know what’s going on with folks off camera but he seemed to have been in a better place once he’d been in rehab for a while. Prayers to his family.

    Been a big fan of Dr. Drew for many years. Way before his Television shows. I believe him to be very professional and astounding at what he does. I am curious as how he feels after someone he has treated loses their battle. Via Mike Starr.

    btw.. the comments about alcoholism…
    oh forgot ALLL about that part of my life.. it is also perpetual.
    hope someone from the show can heed my scared feelings and reply or something . . . .
    I personally have a ‘show’ going on over here, and I hate every minute of it.
    thanx
