In His New Book, Matthew Perry Talks About His Fight with Addiction

The actor who played Chandler Bing on “Friends” wrote a book called “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.” It will come out on November 1. In it, he talks about his life and his addictions, saying that he is finally ready to talk about them.

Matthew Perry tells People about the book, “I wanted to share it when I knew I wouldn’t have to go back into the dark side of everything again.” “I couldn’t write it all down until I was pretty sure I was sober and away from the active disease of alcoholism and addiction. And the most important thing was that I was sure it would help people.”

In His New Book, Matthew Perry Talks About His Fight with Addiction

Perry says in the book that he almost died at age 49 because of his addiction when his colon burst from using too many opioids. He slept for two weeks and was in the hospital for five months.

During “Friends,” he talks about his drinking problem. “I could sort of handle it. But by the time I was 34, I was in a lot of trouble,” Matthew Perry told the magazine. He also said that he was clean during Season 9.

“It’s like penguins,” he said of his co-stars. When one penguin is sick or badly hurt in the wild, the other penguins gather around it and prop it up. So long as the penguin can’t walk on its own, they walk around it. “The cast kind of did that for me.” Perry says that he has been to rehab 15 times and is “pretty healthy” now.

“What shocks me the most is how strong I am,” he said. “The way I can get back on my feet after all of this pain and bad luck. Even though it’s a little scary to put all your secrets in a book, I didn’t leave anything out because I wanted to tell the story. There’s everything there.”
