“I couldn’t have possibly written a work when I was smoking cocaine. It stops you. But my big fear, I know that when I was going into rehab, I was wondering whether I would be able to write anymore. I was terrified of not being able to write without cocaine…

This very nice writer called me from out of the blue and said, ‘I know you’re worried about that. Don’t worry about that.’ And of course, they were right. It takes awhile to make the adjustment, to get used to writing clean. But it takes a little while to get used to doing anything clean once you’ve been using cocaine for 10 years.” – Aaron Sorkin. (The Writer Behind ‘The Newsroom’)
