Fox Happy To Be Sober

MICHAEL J. Fox is pleased to have put his alcohol addiction firmly behind him, because giving up booze has helped in his battle with Parkinson's disease.
The Teen Wolf star was diagnosed with the progressive neurological condition in 1991 and he subsequently plunged into a deep depression, becoming dependent on alcohol.
He decided to quit drinking a year later (92) and admits his early battle with sobriety was "like a knife fight in a closet" - but now he's convinced giving up alcohol has enhanced his life.
He says, "I wouldn't say it's a struggle to stay sober. I'd rather drink battery acid than have a beer right now. But I would say that I picked up tools that helped me with Parkinson's.
"There's no better lesson in loss of control than to have Parkinson's because you learn very quickly what you can control and what you can't control. The only answer is to accept it."
