Way Relies On Therapy And Aa

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE frontman GERARD WAY stays sober by addressing his alcohol-dwelling demons every day. The WELCOME TO THE BLACK PARADE singer, who abused alcohol and prescription pills for several years, credits Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and therapy as major factors in keeping him clean. He says, "If I didn't deal with it every day I'd leave myself open to relapse. I worked with a therapist and she said I could go to AA. "Even without being famous, I'm the sort of guy who stands out in a crowd, so I was nervous about going. But I was made to feel really welcome."

To me, Gerard Way is the bravest man in the world. He is so honest and truthful about his addictions and his fight to overcome them. He is not ashamed or embarrassed to show what it's like to be at "rock bottom" for the good of his fans. His message is not sent out by preaching but by his own example... If I could say anthing to "Gee" it would be to "keep up the good fight, rely on us fans that love him so much, and I am so very PROUD of him..."Sondra xoxo

Gerard was my inspiration to get help with my pill poping problem. It's a very hard thing to go through because I lost a lot of friends because of it (and not because I did it because I stopped). I say congrats to Gerard and wish him the best of luck!
