“It feels great to be back on set and sober too. I wasn’t hungover when I went to work. There are other sober people at work, which is weird because if you’re not sober, you’re not hanging out. It was great. I really enjoyed it and feel like I can be more in the moment. I love working. We’ll see what happens.”
“Many amazing things have happened to me, but everything has a price, nothing is free. When I was younger, I didn’t have too many people to take care of me and let me run free. I didn’t know how to manage my money. If I was older, I wouldn’t have made so many bad decisions. I was never a normal teenager. I had a very unusual life. I was almost destined for drug addiction. In a weird way, I never felt like I fit in. So when I was high, I had camaraderie with other people. He just drank and partyed. Suddenly, I felt like I was with the people and I fit in somehow. That’s how it started.” confessed Edward Furlong

I like how simple my life is these days. I wake up and I don’t worry if I’m going to jail. I’m not hungover or wondering what I did last night. There are so many amazing things and reasons why I do it. I hope to continue like this. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m getting excited every day. It’s cheesy when I get those yearly chips, but I can’t wait to get my five year chip.”
“Things are slowly changing and I just want my life to go back to what it was and what I was doing in the first place. I screwed over so many people when I was high, regaining the trust of the people who work with you when you’ve failed so much with them is a long process. It’s like friendship after a bad breakup: people are learning to trust me again. It’s great and things are starting to get going again.” concluded Edward Furlong.
