    TYSON FURY said boxing is more addictive than any sort of drug and will struggle to leave it behind despite previous plans to retire. Fury returns on Saturday at Tottenham's stadium in a trilogy bout against Derek Chisora, who he beat in 2011 and 2014. 3Tyson Fury said boxing is more addictive than any sort of drugCredit: Getty It is his first fight back since April, when he knocked out Dillian Whyte, 34, and announced at Wembley that he was walking away. But the retirement lasted just a matter of months as Fury, 34, fought hard to fill his days living the life of an everyman. The eccentric father-of-six was eventually pulled back into the brutal boxing game as he simply knows nothing else. Fury told Queensberry Promotions: "I've been in love with boxing for such a long time from being a little boy and I am 34 now, probably at the end of my career in the next few years.

    I first shot methamphetamine when I was 17. As an abused child seeking relief from trauma and stress, I’d turned to alcohol at age 12 and had used numerous drugs to excess before sticking that needle in my arm. In 1979, at age 18, I was arrested for possession of meth and syringes. Knowing I was a good student headed to college, without a prior criminal record, the judge reduced the charges to disorderly person, which was below a misdemeanor. As a result, I was not incarcerated. And when he sentenced me, the judge ordered that my record be expunged if I did not get convicted for the next few years. I also was allowed to leave New Jersey to attend college in California, after a one-year delay, even though I still was on probation. The criminal justice system showed me mercy and allowed me to build a life. I regained a bit of control over my drug use in college, until I succumbed to a severe meth addiction that lasted from my senior year until I was 32. During...

Entertainment on Wednesday about the 2002 rom-com. “We were in a force majeure and had to all sit at home twiddling our thumbs for some time,” she noted, adding that it was “rough.” Despite the fact they had to scrap all of their pre-filmed scenes, Hurley said Perry,...

    Matthew Perry admits he had to beg Friends producers to get rid of one of his famous catchphrases that dragged on for almost six seasons.  The Friends star, 53, explained in his new book 'Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing' that the beloved phase - 'could it be more annoying' - was aggravating to him.  Perry revealed in his memoir the behind the scenes gossip along with some of his sexual encounters with celebrities and struggle with alcoholism.  The actor wasn't shy to dish on his Friends pet peeves, especially the line that began to be ridiculed by Monica, Phoebe, Ross and Joey.  'That particular cadence - could it be more annoying? - had been so played out that if I had to put the emphasis in the wrong place one more time, I thought I'd explode,' Perry wrote in his book obtained by Variety.  The actor said he 'had to beg the producers' to remove the line from scripts.

    Matthew Perry is America's most complicated 'Friend.' No wonder the promotional tour for his new memoir, 'Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,' has felt off. His book doesn't lend itself to sound bites, or joust-y Q&A's on morning or late night shows, or neat conclusions drawn at the end of lengthy celebrity profiles accompanied by high-gloss photos of Perry in a $600 Tom Ford shirt and $218 jeans (see GQ). Perry's book has been stripped for parts, all the 'shocking revelations' compiled into listicles: The colonoscopy bags, the drugs, losing all his teeth, the fling with Julia Roberts, the swipes at other celebrities (Keanu Reeves, Eddie Van Halen), the time Jennifer Aniston tried to intervene. I suspect I'm not alone in feeling put off at first. Even for a celebrity tell-all, Perry's revelations can feel pornographic, designed to shock, and his press tour a perverse kind of peacocking. Not to mention the soupçon of meanness here — especially the digs at Reeves, one of the nicest and most beloved stars on the planet. Those have been rightly assailed as...
    Matthew Perry was brought to the verge of tears while watching an old clip of himself on Friends, emaciated because of his drug addiction. Perry, 53, has laid bare his battle with substance abuse in his upcoming memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, out November 1. In the book he noted that fans could tell which drug he was on based on his physical size onscreen: 'When I'm carrying weight, it's alcohol; when I'm skinny, it's pills; when I have a goatee, it's lots of pills.' Now in a new interview for ABC News, Diane Sawyer showed him a snippet of footage of him looking 'painfully thin' on a Friends episode from 1997 - the year he first plunged into Vicodin addiction while recovering from a jet ski accident. 'It's very hard to watch that,' he said, barely able to get the words out: 'because in this weird way I feel sorry for that guy, 'cause that's a guy that's out of control.'

    Matthew Perry has shared a tongue-in-cheek guide to how you can tell what drugs he was using during his years in Friends, simply based off his appearance in the show. Perry, 53, has laid bare the intimate details of his battle with substance abuse in his upcoming memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, which drops on November 1. In a snippet obtained by Page Six, the actor spoke out about how his addiction to opioids and alcohol affected the way he looked on screen, and revealed how those watching the NBC comedy series can figure out how severe his drug use was based off his weight and beard length. 'You can track the trajectory for my addiction if you gauge my weight from season to season,' he wrote in the book. 'When I’m carrying weight, it’s alcohol; when I’m skinny, it’s pills; when I have a goatee, it’s lots of pills.' Matthew Perry says viewers can determine what kind of drug he was using while filming Friends by looking at his body type on episodes of the show RELATED...
    Matthew Perry has revealed that the counsellors at rehab tried to stop him from going to hospital when his colon exploded because they thought it was a bid to get drugs.  The star, 53, was given just a two percent chance of survival after an opioid addiction caused his colon to burst when he was aged 49, leaving him in a coma for two weeks and spending months in hospital.  Prior to his admittance, Matthew was staying at a sober house alongside his assistant, who could see he was in serious pain and got him to hospital despite the rehab staff insisting it was just 'drug-seeking behaviour'.  He added that his problems didn't stop after he was admitted, as the hospital he was staying in didn't have the necessary equipment to treat him, but neighbouring clinics refused to admit him because of his level of fame.  Shocking: Matthew Perry has revealed that the counsellors at rehab tried to stop him from going to hospital when his colon exploded because they thought he was going to get drugs (pictured September 2022)  In an...

In an interview with “Addiction Talk” by American Addiction Centers, Yawn spoke in more detail about her past and the moment that marked a turning point for her and set her down the path of sobriety. She shared that her struggles with alcohol addiction got so bad that people gave up on her, including one halfway house director and a sponsor who said, “I can’t help you.” Yawn explained that she had a sponsor who told her, “Sandy, sponsoring you is hurting me, because every time you go out, I worry about you… I can’t help you clearly,” Yawn recounted.

    A row of luxury 'healing' creams is guarded by a locked glass cabinet, gilded in gold trim. The packaging is stylishly minimal – clean and white with small black typeface – and beside the tubs sit decorative, artificial fruit and images of sprawling fields, with a small flyer to remind customers of the high-quality, organic nature of the products. I spot one pot – a snip at $43, or roughly £35 – that is specifically designed for 'replenishing and rejuvenating' tissues in the, er, vagina. Alongside me, expensively dressed customers peruse the goods, clutching colourful iced smoothies and juices. I'm in upmarket Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, California, in one of the area's many so-called 'wellness' shops, just a stone's throw from designer boutiques such as Gucci and Saint Laurent. It's a far cry from Holland & Barrett, not least because all the products here at the Serra boutique contain high-grade, genetically engineered cannabis. There are balms and lotions, things to eat and, of course, to smoke. One display cabinet showcases dozens of dried cannabis flowers, each bud sitting in...
    When powerful, professed men and women of God come to grief, they almost always do so over two transgressions older than the Commandments: sex and money. The leader of the Mexico-based international La Luz del Mundo church pleaded guilty this month in Los Angeles to sexual felonies with underage girls in his church community. The judge who sentenced him remarked, “I’ll never cease to be amazed at what some people do [in the name of] religion.” The church leader joins the sullied company of the Catholic priests who molested boys and girls in their charge; the accused and convicted sexual abusers on the Southern Baptists’ list of offenders in their own ranks; and the pastors and preachers, low and high, taken to court for making off with anything from thousands to millions of dollars rightfully belonging to God and to their congregants. These foibles and pitfalls can entice not just orthodox, IRS-blessed religions but also the self-made leaders of spiritual, self-help, self-fulfillment and human potential bodies that have grown here in Southern California as nowhere else.

    Comedian Bill Burr reveals he doesn’t view himself as an alcoholic but stopped drinking when his behavior became dangerously close. On the May 19th episode of the Steve-O’s Wild Ride! podcast, Burr was initially talking about outfitting a vehicle for traveling. He mentioned wanting to install a cigar lounge in the vehicle before saying, “But then you gotta watch because then, then all your demons are just right there.” “That’s another thing too. I learned that’s when my drinking got outta control was when I brought it home to the house,” Burr said. “I don’t have to go out to a bar cuz before, like I always had it under control because I had to go out, you know.” He continued, “If I felt like getting a drink, but I was at home and I was watching a game. You’re in your sweatpants, it’s like, dude, ‘I don’t wanna fucking take a shower and fucking go out and do all of that shit.’ So then you just wouldn’t drink and then it wouldn’t get ahold of you.” Burr turned to...
    A tank crushes a car with its Ukrainian driver inside. Within hours of the shocking incident earlier this year, more than eight million people had watched the horror replayed explicitly on one UK Facebook page alone. Every hour, more of Putin’s atrocities pour into our homes, hearts and minds.  Broadcasters such as Channel 4 report that news audiences have doubled, while social media sites such as Twitter and TikTok are seeing surges in hits related to the war. We feel compelled to see these events rather than turn our backs. We are desperate to help, if only by witnessing the agony of Ukraine’s people and willing their survival.

    DENVER (CBS4) – Today 16-year-old Keegan Pyron is back in class and working alongside his peers. Just a few months ago he was living a much different story, clinging to what little of life he had left. “When I went out, I only did fentanyl and meth. That’s all I stuck to and eventually the places I went to stopped selling meth because they are all just selling fentanyl,” he said. His addiction he says started long before he reached that point. Pyron says he tried marijuana for the first time at 11 years old, and before he was even a teenager he started experimenting with pills. (source: CBS) “Whether it was my family or if I was at a friend’s house for a sleepover. I mean I was in 7th grade so if I was visiting a friend’s house or my family, I went to someone’s house for dinner the first thing I would do was look in the medicine cabinet,” he said. From there his addiction started spiraling out of control. “Eventually I couldn’t steal from my parents or...

    Tucker Carlson slammed the Biden administration over its new $30 million grant program to reduce substance abuse to underserved communities, claiming the government would be giving out 'free crack pipes to black people.'  Although the administration has clarified that they're distributing safe smoking kits, not crack pipes, Carlson doubled down on his claims Tuesday night.  'The Biden administration is promoting drug addiction,' he said. 'They've been caught doing it and now they're denying it.'  Carlson's fellow Fox host Sean Hannity also blasted the administrations plan on Wednesday night in an interview with U.S. Senator John Kennedy, of Louisiana, who called the plan 'stupidity.'  'There's no safe way to use crack cocaine and meth. Sooner of later it kills you. Why aren't we spending this money to get people off the illicit drugs,' Kennedy said.  Tucker Carlson mocked the Biden administration's plan to distribute safe smoking kits to underserved communities on his show Tuesday night Joe Biden's Health and Human Services Department said that the kits will serve to limit the risk of infection drug users face and will prioritize underserved communities...
    Dear Amy: I am 25 years old and have been in my current job ever since graduating from college, four years ago. Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune)  Over the past year, I have grown to hate this job and even some of my co-workers. I know I’ve been languishing in one of those thankless “first jobs” that a lot of people laugh about later. Of course, working through the pandemic hasn’t helped.

    SOME time on Christmas Day you probably reached the stage when you realised you had eaten far too much – to the point that you felt uncomfortable, even a bit ill. For some of us, this is a stage we get to more or less every day of the year. We don’t need the excuse of Christmas. 4Credit: Getty For us, our troubled relationship with food means every day is Christmas. And not in a good way. I was pleased to see TV’s Richard Osman talk with his usual eloquence about how hard it is to work your way out of an eating disorder. As he points out, binge-eating and other food addiction issues don’t have the same potential for “doomed glamour” as problems with drugs and alcohol. And, importantly, while you may have the option of completely cutting drugs or alcohol out of your life, with food this is obviously impossible. I’ve always resisted talking about my own issues with food. Firstly, because I’m already busy banging on about dealing with my excessive intake of alcohol. And my...
    Ben Affleck, the movie star and avid gambler who has struggled with alcohol addiction, is one of sports gambling’s most visible pitchmen. He’s center stage in a TV ad for the mobile wagering app WynnBET. “We all want to win. Let’s win together!” Affleck exclaims. Aaron Paul, the actor who only played an addict in “Breaking Bad” and waved off hard drug use himself after seeing his girlfriend consumed by addiction, is a spokesman for Bet365, a sports wagering app. It has more than 63 million global users and offers newcomers a $500 credit to join. “You need to ask yourself, why am I not a member of the world’s favorite sports book?” Paul asks in one ad. Those who scroll through both these apps are offered sports betting mainstays — wagers on money lines, touchdowns, parlays, fight outcomes, total hits and other outcomes. At the bottom of the screen is this bit of advice: “If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800 GAMBLER.” Call me old-fashioned, but as sports betting enjoys a...

Its supplying $30 million in grants for services such syringe exchanges and naloxone, the opioid overdose antidote.The announcement is part of the Biden administration's strategy to focus on harm reduction efforts, a priority announced in the spring.

    Federal officials are cautioning Americans to be wary of a hand sanitizer that was packaged to resemble bottled water bottles and is now subject to a massive recall. American Screening announced that it is voluntarily recalling 153,336 units of hand sanitizer sold nationwide that contains 70 percent ethyl alcohol packaged in 8-ounce containers that could pose the risk of consumption.

    WHEN it comes to addiction, most people think of drugs, alcohol or gambling, but being addicted to toxic love can be the most dangerous of all. “Coming off a narcissistic, abusive relationship is a harder addiction to come off than heroin – and that’s coming from an ex heroin addict,” says Emma Davey, narcissistic abuse expert and founder of My Trauma Therapy. 2If you don’t heal from a toxic relationship, you’re very likely to go back into another one, says narcissistic abuse expert Emma DaveyCredit: Getty “In the end, when people are ending their life, self-harming or drinking to escape, it’s because they’ve given every single part of themselves [to the abuser] that they have nothing left to give.” Recognising the signs of this deadly yet poorly-understood addiction can help to keep yourself safe and get the help you need.

    (CNN)Smartphones have become essential, but fixation with all they have to offer -- apps for social media, streaming, games and more -- can be a slippery slope. Mainly because of insufficient research, phone addiction isn't actually an official, medically accepted diagnosis. There are, however, criteria experts have used to describe behaviors, feelings and thoughts that indicate a lack of control over phone use. Those include phone use interfering with commitments and relationships; lack of access to your phone causing dread, anxiety or irritability; and hampered ability to think deeply or creatively. Ignoring any potential negative consequences or loved ones' comments about your excessive phone use are other indications "that we've clearly crossed into problematic behavior," said Lynn Bufka, the senior director of practice transformation and quality at the American Psychological Association. If you're finding it hard to look up from your phone these days, here are 12 ways to start moving in the right direction. 1.

    She was the first posh-voiced girl on Top Of The Pops, who became more famous still as Mick Jagger’s girlfriend.  He was an impecunious old Etonian peer who tried and failed to rescue her from drugs. They fell so madly in love that within three days of meeting at a country house party, Marianne Faithfull had all but abandoned Jagger, then the world’s most famous rock star, and announced that she intended to marry the ‘sensitive’ and ‘gentle’ Lord Rossmore, a bachelor who lived with his widowed mother. Of all the mixed up couplings between the old upper classes and the new aristocracy of rock and pop music that erupted in the 1960s and 1970s, this extraordinary union between the hauntingly beautiful actress and singer — then at the peak of her glamour and fame — and the bookish, spiritual Anglo-Irish peer, who died last week aged 90, was one of the most mystifying of all.

Now 33, Josh had just welcomed his fourth child when he publicly admitted to 'a secret addiction' of 'viewing pornography on the Internet' — which, at the time, was presumed to involve only adult imagery — and was promptly flown to the Reformers Unanimous residential treatment center in Rockford, Illinois. Josh spent six months in a shared room at the $7,500-per-month facility with no access to email or cell phones, and passed his time in prayer, reading the Bible, and attending mandatory church services and meetings. But though the program aims to help people nurture 'the relationship with Christ necessary to enjoy their freedom from the power of sin,' one of its own former counselors, Pastor Jack Allen Schaap, had pleaded guilty to one felony count of criminal sexual assault stemming from the statutory rape of an underage girl on multiple occasions.
