Lunch with Robert Forster: ‘I wouldn’t write about anyone’s drug use but my own’

Forster writes in the book about his heroin use, because that’s how he got sick. But McLennan’s indulgences are off-limits. Some have taken that as a failing, a shirking of the truth, but Forster thinks of it merely as doing the right thing. In too many rock biographies, such tales are used as payback, and that wasn’t ever on his agenda.

5 Characteristics of Adult Children of Alcoholics | The Fix

Number 3: Adult children of alcoholics are extremely loyal, even in the face of evidence that the loyalty is undeserved.Growing up I’d always felt like I was different. Not different as in I had some amazing athletic ability or that I was blessed with a brand of intelligence that made me a shoo-in for Harvard but different in that I came from an alcoholic family that most people I knew couldn’t relate to. I remember once at a sleep over, in middle school, where I decided to open up to a select group of friends about my brothers’ heavy drug use. I thought for sure that once I filled them in on all of the sordid details my all access pass to the cool club would be revoked and I would be left to wade through the dramas of adolescence alone. I was surprised and secretly relieved when it appeared that my friends were hardly fazed by the details I shared. Which led me to believe that maybe, despite being both raised by and related to a bunch of addicts, that I really wasn’t that different after all.
