Rob Lowe says sobriety stopped his cheating ways

rob-lowe-162090Rob Lowe, 50, got sober so he would stop cheating on his wife. The actor has endured a turbulent personal life that has seen him achieve negative headlines – including for an infamous sex tape in the late 1980s – but he says his love life has calmed down ever since he became sober. Lowe – who married his wife Sheryl Berkoff in 1991 – explained to Haute Living magazine: ”I had met my now wife, Sheryl, and was attempting my first try at monogamy, which was not really in my nature at the time, and I wasn’t able to do it. He added: ”It made me examine how I was living.” Lowe had alcohol and sex addictions, both of which led to him entering rehab in the late 1990s.

Having been sober for a sustained period of time, he says it’s had a positive impact on his life. Meanwhile, Lowe – who has been talked of as a potential politician in the U.S. – recently confessed that he no longer harbors any aspirations in that sphere. He told the New York Times: ”The tenor in this country is so – I can’t think of any other word than ‘gross.’ [Running] would be hard to do. For the first time in my life. I don’t idealize or romanticize running for office and that’s really sad.”

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!
