Josh Brolin has opened up about his journey to sobriety.
In a long Instagram post on Tuesday, “Avengers: Infinity War” star, 50, marked five years of sobriety through the sharing of information about one of his past drunken nights before he gave up alcohol.
“Drunk: if you think you are with a rip-roaring time, and the next morning you awake and your brain has broken into a crazy beehive and your body is broken shards of sharp glass, desperately looking for what fits and where your spirit will be eaten by the worms with a large white bloody teeth and your heart has shrivelled into a black prune churning your intestines to the point where dysentery feel attractive,” Brolin caption of a photo of himself next to two friends.
He continued: “And you do not know what you did so you roll out of bed on the last night of the urine and you can call your best friend’s phone number, because you remember him lifting you over his head, your whole self, for you on and broke through the drywall and, do you think, a large aquarium and the phone on the other side rings and he picks it up, scrambling for a phone, the awkwardness of a hard line, and you say: “What did I do last night?!’ and he answers, after a big pause: ‘…Dude…’. #In 5 years.”
Last June, Brolin explained to The New York Times that if he would drink “the moral code” has disappeared.
“So it’s like if I drink… after about halfway through, I would start thinking about jumping out that window… not to kill me, but simply because there must be somebody down there to catch me, and I wonder if I can pull it off or if I could land on that van. It just seemed fun,” he told the news outlet, adding that now that he’s sober, he wants to “live drunkenly” but without the liquor.
“I want to live more drunk. I want to live drunkenly. I just don’t want to take the drink.”
