Thoughts On: Charlie Sheen

I'm not sure why, but I've always liked Charlie Sheen. I think that he basically means well but he's kind of screwed up. On the surface he may seem to be an irresponsible, selfish moron having a huge midlife crisis, snorting cocaine, drinking huge amounts, and partying with porn stars who couldn't give two shits about him as a human being.
Honestly, I don't think that he's happy. The sort of abuse that he's heaping on his body impacts both physical and mental health. Addiction is a complex problem. The thing is, he'd have to want to get help for the treatment to be successful.
Also, once a person has children the game changes. Your choices affect your children. I am sure that Charlie actually cares about his children, but he is out of control right now and cannot properly care for them. He has to want to care for himself before he can do right by anybody else.
