Shawn Pyfrom opens up about drug addiction

shawn-pyfrom_3497727 Desperate Housewives actor Shawn Pyfrom wrote an open letter, revealing his drug and alcohol addiction.

The 27-year-old posted on his Tumblr blog: ”I just read the news about Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman, and against the advice of others; i had to write this open letter. I can’t stay quiet anymore about this… I am an alcoholic and a drug addict. And yesterday I celebrated five months of sobriety. I’m relatively new to being sober, considering the scope of time that I’ve been an addict.

”My head is still spinning from the news. I even question whether or not I should publish this, as I type out these words. But if these words can encourage someone to hold on to their life… to keep from ever using, or to find the strength to stop; then it’s more important that these words are shared.”

”For several years, I lived for drugs. I thought more about using, than i thought about any other ”pleasures”. I put myself in places I never would have ended up, otherwise, for the sake of getting high. There are countless nights of blacking out, and making poor decisions as a result of my overusing,” he added.

    That was a great revelation from Shawn Pyfrom. I am happy he has found the focus to get back to sobriety and to write about his addiction. This was a great step for the bester future without drugs and alcohol. People, realize that this is just the way out of the reality and problems, but indeed a greater problem itself. Drugs and alcohol fog your mind and make you die!
