'Celebrity Rehab': Bob Discovers Steven Adler Lied About His Sobriety (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 12th 2011 3:42AM
Steven Adler, 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew'Sex, drugs and rock and roll is an expression almost as old as rock music. For Steven Adler these things may be too interconnected for him to successfully tour with his band and find sobriety, as we saw on 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1).

When Dr. Drew's Head Counselor, Bob Forrest, stopped in to check on Adler, he was disappointed to find the former Guns N' Roses drummer was still smoking marijuana, and apparently on a daily basis.

To emphasis the severity of Adler's addiction, Forrest asked, "Why couldn't you just not smoke pot for a day? That's what I want to point out to you. You knew I was coming here."

"I've taken it more into consideration that I see that it is something that I have to do," Adler was able to say, but he wasn't able to even suggest that he might stop completely. His addiction is so great that he could so easily slide into far more dangerous narcotics if he continues in his current lifestyle.

"I'm trying to grow up," the 46-year old said, but it's clearly not an easy road for him.

He's a drummer, not a singer... And really if pot's all he's doing then they should be happy, can't od on marijuana.

I guess my question for both Bob and Stephen is can a person moderately smoke pot on a daily basis without it negatively effecting them. If so, and it does not lead to other substances what is the big deal. I certainly think cigarettes. smoked openly and freely on Celebrity Rehab, is far more addictive and certainly taken more lives in one year than pot has in the history of mankind.

That show is horrid. Sobriety is not a tv show. It is tough work and most people cannot afford that sort of perk.

This "Dr." doesn't seem to know what "sober" means. Sober means you're not drunk. It has nothing to do with pot.

Actually, it's good to know that he's still on drugs because at least that explains his odd behavior. It's very sad though, to see someone waste their life and their talent due to drug addiction. I hope his story doesn't end badly.

His odd behavior (slurred speech) is because his drug abuse caused him to have a stroke! That's the reason he went to Celebrity Rehab the FIRST time around (a year or two ago!). They explained his slurred speech back then on the show! That's also the reason he was fired from Guns n Roses!
