Robert Downey Jr.’s shocking drug history. Downey Jr. as we know he’d struggled with drug addictions for years and Downey Jr. spent time in jail between 1996 and 2001 for drug use and drug possession.
more Robert Downey Jr.’s drug history after the jump…
When one comes to hear his story, it’s really sad. Downey Jr. said his father Robert Downey Sr. has given him drug since he was 8 years old and didn’t stop there. Tell me, can you really blame him for having been addicted to drugs? What kind of a father would give drugs to his own kid or even someone else’s kids? Sad.
Downey Jr says ”When the door clicks shut, then you are safe,” “There is nothing aside from a rogue correctional officer that can do you harm if you have the right cellie. You are actually in the safest place on Earth. Safe from the intruders.”
For Downey, his intruders were his drug addictions.
He told Rolling Stone in a recent interview:”Smoking dope and smoking coke, you are rendered defenseless. The only way out of that hopeless state is intervention.”
Robert, who’s recovered from drug addictions is looking forward to the future which includes growing old with his wife, Susan Downey.
Bravo Robert, you’ve come a long way.
Isn’t it so easy to point finger but the truth usually tells a whole lot more?
