When asked in an interview with RadarOnline.com if he felt he was addicted to anything, he replied: “No. No, I don't, because that's a word and a thing that they tried to stick on me for 22 years.
“I don't know, I don't care [what addiction is], I just know it's not a part of my brain today.”
After passing drug tests, Charlie, was asked why he decided to be clean for the interview, to which he replied:
“It's just a choice I'm making today. Just a choice. I feel better. I got bored with those other things. It was time to do something different and I had this epiphanous moment of, ‘I'm 45 with 5 kids,’ and it was time to explore some different realities. (sic)”
When asked if he will be staying clean for the long term, Charlie added: “I don't know. We're not there yet, I'm just right here, right now. Yeah, I have no interest in it.”
Charlie also responded to comments by his father, ‘Apocalypse Now’ actor Martin Sheen, comparing his battles with alcohol and substance abuse to cancer.
He said: “Jeez, dad - shut it ... OK, pop, walk through a cancer ward right now and find any of those motherf***ers who look like me. Sounds poetic but it's rooted in bo*****s”
Charlie had been receiving a home rehab programme for drink and drug abuse at his home in Los Angeles. He also claimed last week he had freed himself from the "troll hole" of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
