Charlie Sheen gives advice: Stay off the crack, unless you can manage it socially

Charlie Sheen says don't do crack. Charlie Sheen had some words of advice Monday: "Don't do crack, drink chocolate milk."

"Don't do crack" was a recurring theme in his nearly half-hour sports-talk radio interview with "The Dan Patrick Show," during which Sheen described the current "Two and a Half Men" hiatus as "forced" and declared himself "peeing clean" and ready to work.

In good spirits after noting that his voice sounded "like Demi Moore in her 80s, what's up with that?" Sheen cracked wise through most of the interview.

"If I'm not a 'Got Milk?' campaign right now -- stay away from the crack, drink chocolate milk," he said, invoking the beverage he was quaffing when he gave a pep talk to the UCLA baseball team Thursday after hitting a few balls with them in batting practice.

"People kind of know that I've had some problems lately," he said, so with little time to prepare his message to the guys, "... I said, stay away from the crack.

"Which I think is pretty good advice, unless you can manage it socially, Dan. If you can manage it socially, then go for it. But not a lot of people can."

Sheen admitted his own attempts to be a social crack user "kind of blew up in my face. Like an exploding crack pipe, Dan."

The actor reportedly has an addiction team assembled to work with him at home.

Patrick had to ask: How long has Sheen been sober?

"I've been off -- well, I don't use 'sober' anymore, I'm not in AA, I don't believe in it. ... It's hard to say, 'cause then you got people arguing the disease model, and the alcoholic model -- these guys, sober 20 years, [who say] 'I'm an alcoholic.' 'Bro, you haven't had a drink in two decades. What are you talking about?' "

You can hear the whole interview, in which Sheen talks a lot of baseball and gets kind of flirty with Patrick -- in a sports-guy way -- here.

Sheen's sitcom went on hiatus when the actor wound up hospitalized after 36 hours of partying with porn stars on the tail end of weeks of similarly raucous behavior. He's expected to return to work at the end of February, his rep said.

Charlie is ready to return to work? Right, and a person with terminal lung cancer is ready to run for the US Olympic track team. Get some help, really. We all know how this ends and it is not pretty. Tragic. Hopefully, his handlers and the television network care more about his health than their bank accounts, which is doubtful.

Some how this whole things sounds like a train wreck just waiting to happen....yet again. Well the Studio is happy because their main revenue maker is going back to work. The 'Intervention Team' is being compensated on the grand scale I am sure. Seems like the current losers, but who knows for how long are: An assortment of 'actresses' and their Agents from the Adult Film Industry. Charlies 'Connection(s)', but I am sure that when summoned, they will be on his door step with a full Briefcase of whatever has been ordered. The local Grocer or Liqour store which up until recently kept his residence stocked and ready for whatever 'Thrillbillie' action is due up for next. Oh and least I forget, the local Maybach Dealer, (as long as Mr. Sheen is under 'forced' control. Several weeks may go by without a purchase of the latest model, due to theft and loss down steep hillsides....above the Owners place of residence. As soon as his antics become an issue with Sony....all of sudden the help, so called friends and those in industry will all be stating the same line. 'Charlie who?'

DENIAL - Don't Even kNow I Am Lying

Bro', if I haven't had a drink in two decades and you can't put together 20 days, perhaps, just perhaps I know something you don't..........
