The Welsh Actor Anthony Hopkins will be turning 83 years old tomorrow and is 45 years sober. The following is an adaptation of what he said in a recent interview.
I was drinking myself to death. I was miserable and about to lose everything dear to me. Then I had a most simplistic proposal come to mind.
Anthony, do you want to live, or do you want to die?
I chose to live. It has not always been easy, but it has always been worth the choice.
Some advice to the young if I may. Today is the tomorrow you were so worried about yesterday. Today is here, and you are here. You have the courage to continue. Just do not give up the battle for any situation. Just keep fighting.
