    Just watched a news story on HLN about Jeff Conaway. Seems that his ex Vicky placed a restraining order on him because of a domestic assault incident. He then placed one on her claiming she set him up by planting pain meds and cocaine in his apt.

    He claimed to be clean and sober during the interview but there's no way he was! Even a non-addict would be able to tell. His face was very thin with sunken cheeks, not to mention the slow talking raspy voice that comes with it. Apparently, besides the oxys, he's now been scripted Dilaudid, and along with benzos and alcohol he's a mess.

    What caught my attention was how healthy Vicky was looking. I remember seeing her on Celebrity Rehab when they put her and Jeff into seperate facilities. It looks like she is doing really well these days, but it's too bad about Jeff. He looks bad. I wonder if he's ever gonna 'get it' before it's too late.

    PS: Janice, I copied your post of the 12 traditions of AA and placed it in the NA forum. Even tho we already have a copy of the 12 traditions of NA, it doesnt contain the details of each one like yours does..

    Thanks for the info Dave, I didnt know!
    Gheez how does Dr Drew find the time for this now that he's got a nightly show on HLN?
    But then again, I think the show is recorded 6 months earlier.

    Well, Dwight Gooden used to pitch for the Mets years ago. He had probably the greatest year any pither has ever had in the 80s but he got arrested several times and never reached those heights again.

    I'm sure we'll have some drama in the new season as usual. I just hope all the celebs find recovery and we don't lose any more.
