Charlie Sheen

I Didn't Fall Off the Wagon

... I'm Just a Lightweight

Charlie Sheen is ashamed about his sloshy behavior at a recent Guns N' Roses concert ... but not because he did anything wrong ... it's because he realized he can't handle his booze like he used to.

Sources close to Sheen tell TMZ -- the Warlock realized people were concerned he had fallen off the wagon ... but he is adamant ... he NEVER gave up booze. 

Sheen is telling friends he does drink occasionally ... and had a few drinks at the concert ... but they hit him "pretty hard" ... because he simply doesn't have the tolerance he had in his heyday.

Charlie told one friend, "This is what happens when you don't drink very often."

As far as his job goes ... we're told the clip (below) didn't appear to cause any concern with the muckety mucks at Sheen's new show "Anger Management" ... because no one ever mentioned it to Charlie.

He looks like a 65 year old man, the damage has already been done. Just stop while you're ahead Charlie, we've already lost so many.

With two new TV commercials (Fiat & DirecTV) it seems Charlie's still bankable. Whatever you think Charlie is; he's still #1 at it. Anybody else here wanna claim they're #1 at what THEY do. Whining about other people doesn't count!

Charlie can't handle the booze the way he used to because his liver is damaged from booze. Yes, it actually works that way.

Really, his heyday was six months ago. So, since he gave up drinking MOSTLY that six months, now he can't handle booze? Charlie, really, I've been a long time fan but when will you realize 6 or 7 drinks isn't a "FEW". I've got friends that aren't drinkers and have a few and don't act like you did. Sigh...please wise up, Charlie, I'd rather see you succeed for the sake of your sons and daughters.

Wow, the Sheenster cant even muster 50 comments on TMZ after two days. The hanger ons went poof with the last of his blow. SAD he such a lightweight and the Tiger Blood no longer courses through his veins.

If you are a recovering addict, you can not drink or use. Not even a *little* bit. If you were in recovery and then you used, you did indeed "fall off the wagon". There is no grey area there, sorry!

No Charlie, this is what happens in late stage alcoholism, your tolerance decreases. Your arrogance and denial will be the end of you. It is sad to watch.

If he NEVER gave up booze, then why is he saying he's a lightweight which happens when somebody doesn't drink over time?
