So is the case with Steve-O. A few years ago the very sight of his face made my skin crawl. His desperation for attention may have been annoying, but now I see it for what it was: a cry for help. The Jackass star has spoken candidly to his fans about his serious addiction to drugs and alcohol, checking himself in to get treatment. Since he's cleaned up he seems more vulnerable, real and lovable. My heart foes out to him and everyone else that struggles with addiction every day. It takes a committed, strong person to fight their personal demons, and although I don't know Steve-O or the millions of others who fight for sobriety on a daily basis, my heart goes out to them and I admire them greatly. In celebration of this Steve-O's one year sober mark, Johnny Knoxville wrote a lovely little blog about proud he is of his friend's accomplishment. I thought I'd share it because celebrity or not, we all struggle with the same emotions, the same troubles and the same problems. What he's doing is commendable-not only because he's saving his own life, but because sharing his battle may influence others to get help. See More...
