Terminator 2 star Edward Furlong recently revealed that he's spent four years on an encouraging sobriety journey after a lifetime of drug addiction.
Although so many of us dream of living the life of a celebrity, it's easy to forget what a stressful and alienating world stardom can be. And unfortunately, many of its luminaries find out the hard way how easily that pressure can give way to a potentially life-ruining addiction.
It's for that reason that so many people who have been through the gauntlet are now celebrating their sobriety. And for those who have managed to stick with it, it's clear how much their lives have improved since putting drugs and alcohol aside.
That's proven especially true for one former child star who once gave the eerie impression that his addiction was at risk of completely consuming him. But as he tells it, that stopped being true at least four years ago.
