He had a Sober Coach before and it didn't work???? DUH. Whoever this Sober Coarch is, I hope they sleep in a suit or armour because this guy is crazier than bat sh-*-t.

Sounds like a good idea. I'm sure Warner Bros. highly suggested something like this to his manager. He'd be pretty crafty though if he starts getting cravings. What is she supposed to do follow him in to the toilet? Anyway, he's got to want to clean up his bad habits.

The sober coach who posted a tweet to Charlie that disappeared after a couple of days didn't look like his usual "type;" cute enough face, yet very short hair. She did appear to be extremely thin, which he seems to like. Couldn't really picture her with implants, but who knows? As long as Charlie is happy and being supported, not paying attention to obnoxious posts from jealous people, this is all that matters.

Charlie Sheen is simply Charlie Sheen. The man has never made any bones about it. He is a pro at making fun at himself.

Sheen is a great father but a lousy husband. Charlie...stay single.

All for PR, his image is in the tank. CBS paying for the coach too?

Cut your losses, boys. It ain't gonna get any better. He's a 45 year old dolt who wants to do drugs and drink more than anything else - thus the "dolt" part.

I have personally worked as a sober companion in the "Hollywood" machine and can attest firsthand that this is probably the absolute best move Charlie and all parties concerned can do for him. A sober companion/coach is so much more than a babysitter,that person is there to share their experience strength and hope with the client in situations that the average person is never put in. Granted success is never gauranteed his odds of living a happy,whole and productive life have just increased exponentially!!!! I just wish more people with this disease and their "Teams" would consider this option when contracts and other obligations demand their clients be present in situations that have proven hazardous in the past.Its a small price to pay compared to shutting down production because your principal is missing, loaded or court ordered to lockup or treatment.....I'm just sayin'

And Charlie's new sober coach's requirements were as follows:
Must be blond, good figure, fun, sense of humor, will look the other way when Charlie is entertaining other girls, a good cook, etc.

Hollywood seems to be one big party so hurray for Sheen if he is trying to be good. Addictions are hard to overcome if temptation is everywhere. Esp. people who want to take advantage of you when you are drunk.

Hope and pray he makes it. Most people that have successful recovery get away and do 90 meetings in 90 days--do the Steps and get a sponsor that doesn't co-sign any bull****. You hire a Sponsor at your own risk--just not the way to do it.

Better make sure the coach is a guy, or he'll probably just wind up trying to **** the coach if it's a woman.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Smoke & mirrors (no pun intended). He cares about his sober coach as much as lindsaybritneyparisetc. care about rehab. Get out of jail free card.

Charlie needs a permanent babysitter. Let's face it the guy cannot take responsibility for his actions and needs someone watching him 24/7. Get an ex Marine drill sergeant not some whimpy touchy feely personality type to do the job. Now, that will sober him up in a hurry.
