It must be so hard to sit by and know that he needs help, yet be aware that until he recognizes it on his own, there's very little that can be done.
Charlie's Sheen's father and brother, Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez, have both once again spoken out about the troubled actor, and believe that even though it seems hopeless, they think that he can overcome his addictions!
"Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotionally. So, when you get clean and sober you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol. You're emotionally crippled. I know what hell he's living in. I've had psychotic episodes in public. One of them was on camera – the opening scene of Apocalypse Now…I know what Charlie is going through. And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing. You have to have courage. Faith can help all of us. Addiction is the dark side. It's a reflection of despair. And it's fed by all the other negativity."
And Emilio concludes:
"There's always hope, and there are so many examples of people pulling themselves out of the shit and having a rebirth. So you just pray for him and hope he has that moment of clarity."
We certainly do hope that that moment of clarity does come, and soon.
This whole thing has gotten so out of control, and so many are losing sight of the reality that he is, at the end of the day, just a very sick man who needs to be in treatment for his issues instead of running around the country having his behavior praised and enabled.
Hang in there, guys.
