Who knew Russell Brand was so smart?

This was written by Russell Brand in regards to the passing of Amy Winehouse.  This could have been written by any parent whose child has an addiction.

 “…When you love someone who suffers from the disease of addiction you await the phone call. There will be a phone call. The sincere hope is that the call will be from the addict themselves, telling you they’ve had enough, that they’re ready to stop, ready to try something new. Of course though, you fear the other call, the sad nocturnal chime from a friend or relative telling you it’s too late, she’s gone.

Frustratingly it’s not a call you can ever make it must be received. It is impossible to intervene. …”

Popeye is slowly moving forward.  He will not be able to return to work for two months.  He has acknowledged his addiction and that is a good thing.

No more sad posts….next post will be pics of Swee’Pea I!!!!

    How are they treating his pain, in light of the addiction? What a complicated mess for all of you! I’m glad you posted as I’ve been thinking about you and anxious to hear. You can post what ever you want, cuz we are here for you…..but pictures of SweetPea will be awesome! ♥♥

    I don’t follow the current celebs much, but from what I’ve seen of Russel Brand, despite his total quirkiness, I admire his spirit and his brain. He seems to be a good person and the little I’ve heard him speak about has always been thoughtful and considered. He is also very funny, which I like a lot, too.

  3. I don’t know much about Russell Brand, but sadly I know all too well about living with an addict. My children’s father died at 37, leaving the entire front pew at his funeral full of children: his sons and daughters and nieces and nephews. He died a year before our oldest graduated high school. Our youngest was 8, and he had a 4-year-old daughter with his second wife. He’d actually taken steps to clean up his life – unfortunately too late to undo the damage years of drug and alcohol abuse had done to his body.

    I truly hope Popeye’s situation has a better ending. It might even be the impetus for Sea Hag to get her act together, too. Difficult and painful as it is now, if it forces their collective eyes open and makes a better life for their children, it’s absolutely worth it.
