The Real Losers in the "Winning" Game

I along with the rest of the nation have watched over the past several weeks as one of the most talented actors on television spiraled out of control. Watching Charlie Sheen unravel has been a painful experience.

He thinks he is "winning" at some sort of game he so casually calls his life. The problem is that the four small children he has fathered in the last ten years are losing...and losing big time.

Any time a parent has a substance abuse problem it affects the entire family. It is a sickness that touches everyone they love and most of the time the addict has no regard for anyones feeling but their own. Charlie Sheen with all his power and money is no exception to this rule.

My hope is that his children are being sheltered as much as possible from the media, but we all know that in this day and age that is a daunting task.

So Charlie, so glad you feel like such a winner. I just hope one day you will realize that there is now way to win and destroy your loved ones at the same time.
