Robin Williams's Long Struggle With Addiction | Challenges of Addiction | Scoop.it
He struggled with cocaine and alcohol abuse in the early ’80s, after his rise to fame on Mork and Mindy. It slowed me down,"Williams told People in 1988, the magazine recalled in a 2006 piece about the actor seeking treatment (again) for alcohol addiction, Williams was even with John Belushi during the Saturday Night Live star’s all-night cocaine and heroin binge that led to his fatal drug overdose. I knew I couldn’t be a father and live that sort of life.” Williams even joked about the dangers of cocaine addiction in his Live at the Met stand-up performance (video below). After 20 years of sobriety, though, Williams checked himself into rehab for alcohol abuse in 2006.
