Alcoholism History Helps Dmx Stay Sober

Rapper DMX insists he can handle alcohol better than most of his peers, because he has alcoholism in his blood. The rap star, real name EARL SIMMONS, is famous for his love of cognac and he's adamant he can still function after downing glasses of his favourite tipple, while others just pass out. He says, "I have alcoholism in my blood, in my family. My grandfather died from drinking a fifth of vodka straight. It is no problem... I am a little drunk." But DMX insists his speedy metabolism stops him from getting drunk - as long as he keeps moving. He adds, "Once I sit my a** down, it's a problem."

Sorry, DMX, but that's one of the stupidest things I've heard in a while about you being able to drink better because there is alcoholism in your family. What, you think you're somehow immune because your grandfather drank himself to death? That's more of a wake-up call than a badge of honor. Like the movie "Speed," I guess you just can't sit down... That's something to really think about, not brag about. Get help. It's available.

I've spent most of my adult life working in the addictions field and I really have to hand it to DMX. I work with kids as young as ten and eleven and his comments about alcoholism are pretty much the dumbest, shallowest, most misinformed statements I've ever heard someone make about substance abuse. And in typical fashion of his ilk, so eloquently worded! I'm a little disappointed though - couldn't you make it rhyme?
