Charlie Sheen's journey to sobriety

In an interview with PEOPLE, Sheen disclosed his six-year journey of sobriety. He emphasised a newfound focus on single parenthood, raising his 14-year-old twin boys. The pivotal moment that led to his sobriety was a heartbreaking instance when he couldn't fulfill a promise to drive one of his daughters to an appointment due to having consumed alcohol earlier that day.

Detailing the turning point that triggered his decision to quit drinking, Sheen recounted the poignant experience of letting his daughter down. Reflecting on the incident, he mentioned, "We got her there on time, but it broke my heart because she was in the backseat and I could just tell she was thinking, 'Why isn't dad driving?' So I got home and sat with that for the rest of the day. And the next morning I just stopped."
