Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee had a conversation with Yahoo Entertainment where he talked about sobriety.
Lee serves as a beacon of hope for his troubled friend and bandmate, Vince Neil, since he himself suffered from the devastating effects of alcohol abuse for many years and found himself ultimately going to rehab for one month once he knew he’d finally hit rock bottom.
Talking about his experience with alcohol abuse, Lee said:
“I didn’t notice it until towards the end of it, when I was like, ‘Oh dude, I’ve got to stop.
“Like, I was drinking just out of boredom. I would just wake up and be just building [a glass with] just all vodka and just a little eyedropper of cranberry or lemonade.
”I was drinking two gallons — not pints, not quarts, but gallons, the big-handles — a day. That’s f*cking crazy.’
