After the Beatles broke up in 1970 Ringo Starr turned to alcohol for nearly two decades to cover the pain. “I was mad” he told the Times of London. “I got lost in a haze of alcohol and drugs” he told Rolling Stone in a 2011 interview. Every addiction begins with pain and eventually ends with pain. In 1988 Ringo and his wife actress Barbara Bach entered rehab together. “That’s all drugs and alcohol do; they cut off your emotions in the end.” Face your pain don’t cover it up. You have a wonderful life ahead of you, so get help right now!
