So, I just learned that Joaquin Phoenix entered into a rehab center for alcohol abuse a couple of weeks ago. I'm glad he went there on his own accord, that's a big step. I've often wondered how rampant alcoholism is in the world. I know an alcoholic that admits it, but won't do anything about it. Now that the yeast in beer is creating havoc in his body he's turned to vodka drinks. It makes life so hard for him, as well as the people around him. Over the years we've all wished he would stop and get help, but he doesn't see his drinking as a problem. I suppose we all have our battles to cross.
