Charlie Sheen Calls Alcoholics Anonymous 'Ridiculous'
Charlie Sheen insists he will never use support group Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) to help him beat booze as he has nothing but contempt for the "ridiculous" system.
The troubled actor was hospitalized in Los Angeles and treated for a hernia in January after a wild night of partying, before checking into a rehab-at-home program to help kick his addictions.
Sheen has hit headlines over the last few weeks after launching a Twitter account and signing up for numerous interviews to talk about his tumultuous personal life, often boasting about his drug use and his love of partying.
But he is adamant he does not have a problem with booze and has given up drinking of his own accord, without the help of rehab workers or support groups such as the AA.
During an interview with Britain's The Sun, Sheen is pictured tearing pages out of the AA handbook and then used it to light the fire in his living room, declaring, "I'm finally finding the right use for Alcoholics Anonymous."
He adds, "(It's) ridiculous. Do you say, 'My sponsor said he's a loser so I want to be one too.' Or do you say, 'No I must stay like this and continue to suck at life'? Alcoholics Anonymous? It's about as anonymous as me. It's the holy book of lies.
"I'm just doing things my own way. I don't know if I will drink again. How do you turn down a perfect 1982 Petrus?"
The Two and a Half Men star also reveals he smokes two packs of cigarettes a day, but is convinced his tobacco habit does not have a negative effect on his health: "I smoke 40 a day and have the lungs of a non-smoker. I have no problems with my liver or kidneys. They hurt a little bit during the party but when the party stops, they're fine. They're like, 'OK, we're good for about three more of those.'"
