Sobriety is worth the wait, what could you accomplish with 10yrs of Sobriety?
Congratulations on your success in managing the disease of addiction for all these years Mr. Farrell, you are truly an inspiration to us all in Recovery. I believe that by working a program of recovery (12-Step, Refuge, SMART) will have us find the our ultimate goal….Peace…While I was using Drugs and Alcohol, I spent A LOT OF TIME DURING the week preparing, wondering, and setting up for the perfect buzz, the act of the shot or the smoke.

Farrell, now 41, sought treatment in 2005 for his substance issues after he wrapped the film Miami Vice. The Beguiled actor opened up about his stint on The Late Late Show in 2013.

The Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them star celebrated being clean for 10 years during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Showlast year.
“Congratulations, you look fantastic,” host Ellen DeGeneres said to Farrell in May 2017 after he revealed he’s been sober for a decade. “You really do, you look fantastic, and you have a birthday coming up.” (Farrell turned 41 later than month).
“I love getting older,” the father of two replied. “Except getting hair in strange places and losing hair in not-so-strange places a bit. It’s kind of an aversion that’s unfavorable. I robbed that from Billy Crystal in City Slickers, for anybody that cares.”
Farrell shares 14-year-old son James with ex-girlfriend Kim Bordenave and 8-year-old son Henry with ex-girlfriend Alicia Bachleda.
