• Charlie Sheen revealed he has been sober since 2017, almost 6 years • He made the decision to get sober after realizing the impact of his actions on his children • Charlie is mending bridges from his past and has reconnected with Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre
Here is what happened:
In a recent interview with People, Charlie Sheen revealed that he has been sober for almost six years after experiencing a moment that prompted him to make a change in his life. The moment occurred when he forgot to drive his daughter to an appointment and had already been drinking. His interaction with his loved ones improved when he decided to focus on small goals, which gave him momentum to continue on the path to sobriety.
As a single dad, Charlie now wakes up early to start his day, focusing on both his personal routine and the care of his four children. He is also looking to the future as he steps back into the spotlight and mends bridges from his past. This includes a recent guest appearance on Bookie, a series created by Chuck Lorre, with whom Charlie had a public falling out. Chuck, in a November interview with Variety, expressed his continued friendship with Charlie, stating, “we were friends once,” and explained that reconnecting with Charlie was healing for both of them.
Reflecting on his behavior during the time of his public outburst, Charlie admitted, “There was 55 different ways for me to handle that situation, and I chose number 56,” and took full ownership of his role in the situation. Charlie emphasized that it was a moment of growth for him to acknowledge his mistakes and take responsibility for his actions.
