Matthew Perry is an addict. I did not know that. Watch this video
My daughter sent me a link to a debate between Matthew Perry and this English Fellow Peter Hitchens (brother of the late Christopher Hitchens). I did a story on Christopher's passing. There was also a English woman Baroness Meacher, who chaired some kind of English drug program committee. When you listen to Perry, you can see that he truly has lost some brain cells to alcohol. He was childish and constantly attacked Hitchens who believes addiction is not a disease but a choice.
Hitchens made a good case but Perry was a boor. He even looks toasted on this set. I was a Perry fan as a comedy actor. I thought he could be a Cary Grant for the present generation. But apparently he can't drink more than one or he becomes uncontrollable and a drunkard. That is his self diagnosis.
Regardless of which way you believe, addiction is a disease or a choice, there was on display a spoiled petulant man, Perry, being skunked by a erudite intelligent Brit. I just enjoy listening to the Brits talk. Take that Hollywood liberals!
