That's the fucking thing about getting old, man. You do that shit in college, 20 drinks a day, you're a legend. You get old, you're on life support.

That's insane. I knew someone who died at 35 because of alcoholism. Chronic drinking caused him to go into complete organ failure and he passed away after 3 months in the hospital. It's incredible that people can do this to themselves and somehow live into their 70's.

Fentanyl is a phenomenal drug when used in the appropriate clinical setting, such as the induction of anesthesia and treatment of acute pain. It is only dangerous to the idiots who shoot up heroin that happens to be laced with fentanyl...

At how many medical doctors and lawyers are functional "alcoholics." I know quite a few of them and may even have qualified personally during various inflection points in my own professional life. Conversely, I have yet to meet a CEO who exhibited or confided this problem  - with them it's apparently blow or sex addiction. Stay high on life without abusing crap please.

Report him/her to the state bar authority. Your identity won't be disclosed, an investigation may ensue, and the bar will likely attempt to help the afflicted person provided the results indicate there is an actual problem. In my instance, I merely noted too much time at the bars on weekends when I should have been doing something productive instead. I was not exactly alone in my patronage of Chicago drinking establishments..

As the user noted above, he passed away. But for the record he was a very good lawyer. Helped me with some real estate contracts and later some employment contracts. That's what made it even sadder. He went to law school at Michigan with my brother as well. Really is sad to see a life wasted like that.

My nephew recently died from chronic alcoholism, also.  His liver shut down.  He was told to never take another drink, because the body had no way to get rid of the alcohol.  We think he drank half a beer - dead within 24 hours.  It sucks, but Mr Flair is one lucky motherfucker!  WOOOO!!!

Hope he stops drinking cold turkey...

Last summer my little sister passed away from chronic alcoholism, she was 29. She started drinking in high school and never stopped, near the end she was drinking a fifth of vodka a night.

Flair is lucky to be alive.

She sounds like a girl I went to school with. Her parents were the same way, but she didn't survive it. She must've been 34/35 when her organs started failing. It was quite a shock to those of us that didn't know she drank to that extent.

You have my condolences for your sister. Prayers for peace for your family.

Dude's had a crazy life for sure. He should have died in a plane crash but somehow survived. Add decades of booze and drugs which is common in the wrestling lifestyle and it's amazing that he's made it this far when so many wrestlers die in their 40's and 50's. Google "plane ride from hell" for an amusing story about Flair. Glad to hear he's okay. WOOOOOOOOO!
