Talking is the best way to heal!

Matthew Perry has been opening up about his path to recovery, and in the process we found out something shocking!

Chandler was still getting over the night before while filming Friends! He said:

"I was never high at work. I was painfully hungover. Then eventually things got so bad I couldn't hide it and everybody knew.”

Aww, that’s so sad for him.

Matthew then went on to say that his struggles are what give him the power to help others:

“I’ve had a life of extreme highs and extreme lows. I was in the white hot flame of fame. From an outsider’s perspective it would seem like I had it all. It was actually a very lonely time for me because I was suffering from alcoholism. The interesting reason that I can be so helpful now is because I screwed up so often. It’s nice for people to see that somebody who once struggled in their life is not struggling anymore.”

So true!

Showing that he can still be famous and stay away from his vices should give everyone a little hope that they can overcome things too!

We’re very proud of Matthew for being loud and proud about recovering from his addictions.

    If that's what he looks like sober, he might want to take up drinking again.

    Shit. Alcoholism may explain why i've read gossip on him being a bit of an asshole.

    No Shit!! When a man is bloated, it is not because of his period. It usually means he is a drunk

    Two minutes of neck exercises a day and he'd lose 15 years.

    "I'm an alcoholic" just means that it's no fun to drink anymore because the hot girls won't sleep with you, so might as well say your previous career of drinking and sexing was a symptom of a disease. Plus if things get boring, you can always 'relapse' and roll around in your local park and attract some media attention and go to rehab or something.
