Actor Dennis Quaid Opens Up About Cocaine Addiction & Recovery
Drug addiction is not a disease that afflicts just particular people from specific walks of life. It is capable of hurting just about anyone, even some of the most affluent and high-profile people.
In a recent interview with Megyn Kelly of NBC, world-famous actor Dennis Quaid talked about his struggles with cocaine addiction throughout his life. He shared that he spent essentially the entirety of the 80s hurting himself with cocaine abuse. The substance had such a grip on his life, he would often not sleep for days, even during the middle of busy filming schedules.
Mr. Quaid considers himself lucky to have been able to curb and eventually overcome his addiction to cocaine. While he was engaged to actress Meg Ryan, he realized the destruction cocaine was causing his life and checked himself into rehabilitation and addiction treatment therapies. He stated that he was sober today, but did not disclose how long he had held sobriety, perhaps due to privacy reasons.
