Film legend Sir Anthony Hopkins is 82 years old and half of his life remains sober. The actor recently celebrated 45 years of abstinence from alcohol and to mark the occasion he shared a touching video urging everyone to fight the urge to drink even when times are tough.
“It’s been a tough year, full of grief and sadness for so many people. But today I celebrate how 45 years ago I was woken up by a wake-up call. I was moving disaster, drunk half to death. That’s when I decided I wanted to live,” Sir Anthony says.
According to him, after the decision at all, it was a relief to ask for a drink and life became amazing. “You young people just don’t give up, keep fighting, show courage and mighty powers will come to your aid. That has sustained me throughout my life,” the actor noted.
