“It’s [addiction] — not caused by anything, it’s just there,” he said in a 2006 interview. “It waits. It lays in wait for the time when you think, ‘It’s fine now, I’m OK.’ Then, the next thing you know, it’s not OK. Then you realize, ‘Where am I? I didn’t realize I was in Cleveland.'”He admitted he once thought he could handle addiction on his own.
“But you can’t. That’s the bottom line,” he said. “You really think you can, then you realize, I need help, and that’s the word … It’s hard admitting it, then once you’ve done that, it’s real easy.”
Mistake 161- This is sort of a mix of addictions. I started to watch Breaking Bad when the show was about to end. I would binge watch it on my nights off. But one morning, I got home from work and started to watch it at 8am. I also started drinking beers. So I am not sure if it was addiction to the show or the 8 beers I had for breakfast, but I stayed up watching it until 2pm. Then I had to get some sleep before working at 7pm. I remember justifying it as being like going to a bar until 2am before working the next day.
