We all know drugs are bad and they can ruin dreams and lives.  At age 29, Bradley Cooper woke up and realized that.  He knew he had to stop.  Bradley opens up in the latest edition of GQ Magazine.

He told GQ that he was 29 when he said to himself, “If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life.”

Cooper had a particularly bad incident around the time of his breakthrough role in “Wedding Crashers.” He intentionally smashed his head on the concrete at a party and ended up in the hospital.

Fortunately, Bradley is past all of that. And now that he’s sober, he’s realizing that he didn’t need to be high to be liked.
