Josh Brolin Celebrates Five Years of Sobriety

Josh Brolin is marking five years of sobriety by telling a story of a drunken night out on his social media.

“Drunk: when you think you’re having a rip roaring time and the next morning you wake up and your brain has broken into a frenzied beehive and your body is shattered shards of sharp glass desperately searching for what fits where and your spirit is being eaten by worms with great white bloodied teeth and your heart has shriveled into a black prune churning your intestines to the point where dysentery feels attractive and you can’t remember anything you did so you roll out of bed over last night’s urine and you dial your best friend’s phone number because you recall him lifting you over his head, your whole self, before you hit and broke through the drywall and, you think, a large aquarium and the phone on the other end rings and he picks it up, that clambering for a phone, the clumsiness of a hardline, and you say: ‘What did I do last night?!’ and he answers, after a great pause: ‘…Dude….’” Josh posted on his Instagram account, along with the hashtag, “#5years.”

Josh opened up about his sobriety last year in the New York Times, saying, “I want to live more drunk. I want to live drunkenly. I just don’t want to take the drink.”
