    I would imagine being is such a big house a lot is a bit mind altering. You have to adjust to the silence. And yes It is because of his actions; but that doesn’t mean you can’t be compassionate. Hope for a resolution soon.

    Enjoy the day everyone

    It is classic that a drinker, having quit, needs to replace it with something………it cannot leave an unfilled void…….people who are bright and artistic need to express their creativity or they become anxious and depressed and that can lead to self medicating. Nothing could be healthier at this time for Brad than expressing himself artistically. He needs as big a draw to his senses as was the booze.

    Kate must be ducked down in the back seat still trying to get his phone number.

    I wonder how many years in their relationship his drinking annoyed Angie or did it suddenly escalate since their marriage? I cannot see her marrying him if the problem had been ongoing prior to.

    Wondered that as well because I highly doubt she would subject her kids to that. But he did say something to the effect in his interview that before this all went down the way it did that he thought he was managing these things. So perhaps he thought he was controlling his drinking issue when in actuality he wasn’t.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Didn’t he say something in the interview too about things going bad in the past year or so?

    I got the impression something went wrong and that’s when the drinking, and pulling away, rampped up.

    Brad Pitt Goes Sober: Why It’s So Tough to Quit Alcohol

    By Cari Nierenberg, Live Science Contributor | May 9, 2017
    05:13pm ET

    For more than three decades, actor Brad Pitt was “boozing too much,” and his drinking became a problem. But the actor has been sober for the last six months, he revealed in an interview appearing in the summer issue of the magazine GQ Style.

    “I can’t remember a day since I got out of college where I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff or something,” Pitt told GQ Style, using a slang term for smoking marijuana.

    These days, the 53-year-old has given up drinking and has substituted “cranberry juice and fizzy water” for alcohol. In another important step in Pitt’s recovery, he has been seeing a therapist to cope with “running from his feelings,” the actor said.

    Pitt’s struggles may resemble those of the approximately 17 million adults in the United States who have an alcohol use disorder, the medical term now used to diagnose drinking that seriously interferes with a person’s life and health, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. [7 Ways Alcohol Affects Your Health]

    Although millions of people grapple with alcohol problems, only a small fraction of those individuals stop drinking and seek treatment to break the addiction, as Pitt did.

    Most addictions are difficult to break, and there is not a lot of scientific evidence available about which substances may be harder or easier to quit using, said Dr. Robert Swift, a psychiatrist and associate director of the Brown University Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies in Providence, Rhode Island. How difficult it is to quit an addiction may depend on the length and intensity of a person’s use of the substance, he said.

    A person like Pitt has both fame and fortune, but sometimes that is not enough to make someone quit drinking, Swift said.

    Live Science asked Swift to explain what happens in the brain when a person drinks heavily that can make alcohol so addicting.

    Three major brain changes

    One of the first things that happens to make people dependent on alcohol is that the substance stimulates the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter linked with pleasurable and rewarding activities, such as enjoying a great meal or having sex, Swift said. The release of this brain chemical affects the brain’s reward center, and it can stimulate people’s interest in and enjoyment of alcohol, so they continue to drink, he said. Consequently, the brain learns to associate alcohol with positive experiences.

    But as a person continues to drink frequently and heavily, a second major change occurs. The brain gets sensitized to the release of dopamine and over time, that enjoyment of alcohol fades, Swift said. As the brain becomes tolerant to alcohol, people need to drink more and more, in a sense, to feel good, and this begins the transition from liking alcohol to becoming addicted to it, he noted.

    A third major change takes place with repeated exposure of the brain to alcohol. As the brain becomes used to alcohol, it compensates for the substance’s depressant, or slowing effects, by increasing the activity of glutamate, one of the main excitatory chemicals in the brain, Swift told Live Science. In other words, the brain responds by becoming more excited by the presence of alcohol, and even when a person is not drinking, the brain remains in an excited state, he noted. [11 Interesting Facts About Hangovers]

    With the brain in this excited, overactive state, a person with a chronic alcohol problem may not sleep well, may feel more anxious or may develop the shakes, Swift explained. The brain then needs the sedative effects of alcohol to damp down the excitatory chemicals so the person can feel normal, Swift said. In other words, the person needs to continue to drink.

    Alcohol addiction

    Breaking an addiction to alcohol is more difficult the longer and the more frequently a person has been drinking.

    If the individual has been drinking heavily for years, the changes that take place in the brain may be permanent, Swift said. Chronic alcohol use actually changes the brain neurologically; it sensitizes certain brain circuits and changes neurotransmitter levels, and it can also affect executive function, which is the part of the brain involved in decision-making that tells a person not to drink, Swift explained.

    Because some of the brain changes that occur with chronic alcohol use cannot be reversed, people who have become addicted typically need to avoid alcohol for the rest of their lives, Swift said. [How 8 Common Medications Interact with Alcohol]

    Individuals can vary in their vulnerability to becoming addicted to alcohol, he said. Some people are more genetically susceptible than others, and alcohol dependency tends to run in families, Swift said.

    About half of the cases of alcohol use disorders are due to genetics and family history, and the other half are due to environmental exposure, Swift said. Environmental factors may include social influences, such as friends and family, the availability and access to alcohol, and age at first use.

    For someone with a long-term addiction to alcohol, quitting drinking can be a difficult process with a high likelihood of relapse, Swift said. But chronic alcohol problems are treatable. The best treatment is a combination of medication and counseling, and some people need to go through a detox program first to get the alcohol out of their systems, he said.

    I know from my own experience back in the day that once you get it in your head that your partner has a problem then everything about it gets escalated, even taking a single drink. It’s perfectly understandable because both sides totally lose perspective and objectivity. Which is why these 2 smart people blew it by not seeking outside professional help way before this. I know Angie has been quoted pooh-poohing therapy and counseling but I would think after her own medical issues that might have changed. And, yes, it is unfair to both Angie and Brad to comment when we can’t possibly know the whole story. Mea culpa.

  • hotmesss

    I recall he did say something to the effect of things going on with him that he wasn’t dealing with and instead started the heavy boozing.

  • toastie postie

    Where is my whip!!!!😆

  • toastie postie

    I agree. There are several of his that I love. Others….I plan to see it anyway. I mean, it’s Charlie.

  • 81a

    I feel for him. To have the media watching your every move whilst you are trying to overcome both your own personal and family problems and at the same time not been able to have your own family with you due to your own fault must be a triple whammy of the highest order.
    I hope that Angie’s decision was an act of tough love and not a result of throwing in the towel and that she is there now to help him in every way she can.

    Interesting, that studio is a busy one. Paps must be hi fiving each other.

    I would think it is the latter based on six kids and their life long commitment made from the beginning.

  • Dawne

    It’s still on the hook behind your bed!!!! LMAO

  • Felinelilly

    She wouldn’t have dropped his name so fast if it was just an act of tough love. She made it a point to change it in public, which still tells me she was done. But I’ve made my feelings known about that so I’m not rehashing.
    Hopefully someone is helping him and he’s not dealing with this by himself, and it is nice to see him looking better.

  • toastie postie

    😆😆😆
    Morning!

  • toastie postie

    You know I totally agree with you. Tough love is tough on both people – on the whole family. Not easy to look like the bad guy. Hurtful at times.

    Whew!!!!

    I truly believe Angie made her decision to help Brad realize he has a serious problem. Tough love is just that and you don’t help someone with a drinking problem unless you do something that shocks them into reality. She wants Brad to be healthy for himself and for their children. Angie’s a good person and would not intentionally hurt anyone.

  • Fran

    Part of me wished Brad had looked after himself whilst he was married not later.I wish him luck But shame it wasn’t done whilst being married. Shame family had to suffer. No one is a winner here.

  • lyric

    Very interesting article Neer.

  • Fran

    Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.

  • Fran

    I’ve noticed Brad now no longer wears those hats or blue tinted glasses.

  • toastie postie

    Amen!
    😘Glad everything went okay, the other day, for you, Lyric.

    Sorry, that seems to be the norm now.

    No, it’s not right.

    Agree with you.

    Wish I could speak more on it, but I’m already in the doghouse.

  • Beedyq

    Think trolls are doing this trying to disrupt imo

  • toastie postie

    I don’t think so. But like I said, I’m in the doghouse as it is, so best shut my mouth. Not saying it some fans on this site either.

  • Beedyq

    Ok. bbl

    Who ever is doing this it is cyber bullying and needs to stop.
