Rob Lowe Sobriety Memoirs

A number of celebrities struggle with the pressure and heavy demand of the spotlight, always having to be somewhere and act a certain way can wear down a person often leading them towards drugs. This is especially true for teen pop icons who started in the acting business at a young age, being exposed to older successful actors who are not always the best influence. One such icon is Rob Lowe, in his new memoir, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends", Lowe writes that sobriety and his wife Sheryl Berkoff made him the man he is today: an actor who has not only reinvented himself on television but a man who puts family first.

Addiction affects so many different people from all walks of life, no matter one's status or social standing. Lowe was a member of the so called Brat Pack, a group of up and coming celebrities who were born for fame. While Lowe wasn't the only one who struggled with addiction, he does have an interesting outlook on his years of stardom and celebrity status.

"I say in the book when I was a young punk and you would have asked me what the best thing that ever could have happened to me, I would have said getting a Martin Scorsese movie," Lowe said of Berkoff, 49. "But God had other plans. He gave me Sheryl. And she is the best thing that ever happened to me."
