Showbiz Spy reports: The actor — who battled alcohol and drug addictions for years — decided to deal with his demons and went to rehab in Antigua in 2005 after realizing his body was shutting down on him.
“Obviously I’m not a doctor but you don’t have to have a degree in medicine to know when your body’s shutting down. I genuinely didn’t think I had much longer,” he said.
“I’d reached the point where the only voices that had any clarity in the room were the voices of destruction and obliteration.
“I’ve been an addict since I was a kid. I’m not joking man – you can ask my mother. I had a Lion Bar addiction for six months when I was seven.
“Then I had a Coco Pops addiction. I’d go on Smash mashed potato binges, tins of tuna benders. Anything. I’d get addicted to a crosswind. Whatever made me feel good.”
