Counting Crows - Counting Crows' Adam Duritz Weening Himself Off Drugs

Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz is battling severe withdrawal symptoms after choosing to ween himself off mood-stabilising drugs.
The Mr. Jones singer started taking Lithium pills to better balance his life after he was diagnosed with a form of dissociative disorder, but now the star is committed to getting off the drugs with his doctor's help, despite his body's negative reaction.
Writing on his band's Facebook.com page, he states: "Docs Friday instructions: cut Lithium dose in half - F**k me - not so good now. Gotta keep pushing/get off this s**t. Going faster than I should but it still takes too long. All my friends say how clear & present I am. 'Clear & present'. Horror. Not mutually exclusive...
"Just to clarify: I will not be leading any kind of 'sober life' after this. These are not drug addiction problems. I was f**king crazy. I needed meds. I took meds. Now I'm less crazy. I need less meds. I'm stopping meds. That's it.
"These meds just happen to have some freaking vicious withdrawal symptoms when you stop so u (you) can't do it all at once (sic)."
