• For his new book, Christopher Kennedy Lawford gathered stories from recovered addicts. Some striking confessions:

"I'm driving down the road, I'm having a drink. It's four o'clock; I'm supposed to have a drink. But one day I went, 'I don't see anybody else in their car with a plastic take-out container filled with ice and wine.' ... So I think, 'Maybe I should stop drinking while I'm driving.'" —ALEC BALDWIN

"I was a Vicodin addict.... I was drawn to people on crutches. I might show up bringing flowers or fruit, and then I'd use their bathroom and go through their medicine cabinet." —JAMIE LEE CURTIS

"What have I done to [Charlie]? I taught him how to do it. I taught him everything he knew. I never got into the drugs in that way, but I used to drink with the lads on a few occasions.... He knew I was addicted." —MARTIN SHEEN
