David Arquette - David Arquette Opens Up About Drink And Drugs On Oprah

DAVID ARQUETTE opens up about his battle with alcohol and drugs during an appearance on The OPRAH WINFREY Show later today (24th February 2011).
DAVID ARQUETTE, the American actor who recently separated from his wife COURTENEY COX, has given his first post-rehab interview to OPRAH WINFREY, which airs later today, reports US Weekly.Arquette said his lifelong struggle with alcohol and drugs began at the age of four, saying, "When I had my first drink of beer, I must have been 4 years old. I was down in the basement with my dad and beer was there and I just grabbed it and drank it. And I remember that. It's one of my earliest memories". The 39-year-old said he moved onto drugs only a few years later, saying, "I seriously started drinking probably when I was about 12. I stole pot from my father when I was 8 years old". Arquette, who checked into the Betty Ford Centre in January this year, says he has been sober since December 2009 through the help of his estranged wife Cox and his sister PATRICIA ARQUETTE.
After splitting from Cox last year, DAVID ARQUETTE made an appearance on the HOWARD STERN radio show in October 2010 in which he admitted to an infidelity, saying, "I had sex with a girl once. Maybe twice".

I cant have one bit of sympathy for David Arquett. I was an alcoholic over 30 years ago until I realized I was hurting noone but myself and I quit. It can be done. A HUGE difference to me is I can't possibly see why anything was missing in his life if as he said Courtney Cox...undenieably one of the most beautiful women on the planet...really was his best friend and in love with him.....not to mention his georgeous little girl undoubtedly loved him....she is too young to know better. Further Oprah really should preview these shows before airing them. I don't remember the self help guru black lady a couple weeks ago's name but people who say "Youknow....and um....you know...." are doing nothing but trying to get people to agree with them....It's a question not a statement. She could have cut these shows lengths in half by editing out "You know...". Definately not Oprahs best work. In case you want to think I'm just prejudiced I'm 56, white, male and for the most part a true Oprah fan....90% of the time. I turned off the show with "self help guru...I thought you said....I thought you meant....". As to Arquette he is incredibly lucky to have CC and his daughter and two loving intelligent sisters who stand by him....GROW UP! Guys like me would trade places with you in a heartbeat and love every second of it.....no drugs....no alchohol no whiny self pity.
