The Strokes' Julian Casablancas spoke about his struggles that he endured while he was drinking heavily.
He said, "I was probably charming 10 percent of the time, when I had a perfect buzz. You think, 'I'm brave and I'm crazy and I can drink.' But it's really like, 'I can't socially talk to people without having a stupid fake confidence that's obnoxious.' You think it's like truth serum, but it's more like asshole serum."
Asshole serum? So true! Anyone who ever has to deal with drunks knows this. It's bartender life!
The singer furthered, "I was hungover for, like, five years. Like, literally four years after I stopped drinking, I still didn't feel 100 percent. I still had that feeling of being a little hungover, and you just don't want to go downstairs to the deli, and you just want to stay inside. I felt kind of really roughed up by it."
What do you think of his comments on life as an alcoholic?
