Josh Brolin has hit a major milestone in 2019 — he’s five years sober.
The “Avengers” star celebrated his sobriety on Tuesday with a throwback photo while painfully reminiscing about his former party boy lifestyle.
“Drunk: when you think you’re having a rip roaring time and the next morning you wake up and your brain has broken into a frenzied anthill and your body is shattered shards of sharp glass desperately searching for what fits where,” he began, before painting a vivid picture of his spirit “being eaten by worms.”
Brolin also talked about his heart being “shriveled into a black prune churning your intestines” and rolling out of bed “over last night’s urine.”
The 50-year-old actor has a rocky past with booze.
Back in 2013, he was arrested for public intoxication in Santa Monica on New Year’s Day. He checked into a rehab facility later that year, which he says was his “turning point.”

Drunk: when you think you’re having a rip roaring time and the next morning you wake up and your brain has broken into a frenzied beehive and your body is shattered shards of sharp glass desperately searching for what fits where and your spirit is being eaten by worms with great white bloodied teeth and your heart has shriveled into a black prune churning your intestines to the point where dysentery feels attractive and you can’t remember anything you did so you roll out of bed over last night’s urine and you dial your best friend’s phone number because you recall him lifting you over his head, your whole self, before you hit and broke through the drywall and, you think, a large aquarium and the phone on the other end rings and he picks it up, that clambering for a phone, the clumsiness of a hardline, and you say: “What did I do last night?!” and he answers, after a great pause: “…Dude…”. #5years
