Robin Williams Quotes on Booze and Drugs

“After I quit drinking, I realized I am the same [jerk] I always was, I just have fewer dents in my car.”

“Do you think God gets stoned? I think so, look at the platypus.”

“If you can remember the sixties, you weren't there.”

“Reality is just a crutch for people who can't cope with drugs.”

"I went to rehab [for alcoholism] in wine country, just to keep my options open."

"Being a functioning alcoholic is kind of like being a paraplegic lap dancer, you can do it, just not as well as the others."

"Beer commercials usually show big men, manly men, doing manly things: 'You've just killed a small animal. It's time for a light beer.' Why not have a realistic beer commercial, with a realistic thing about beer, where someone goes, 'It's five o'clock in the morning. You've just peed on a dumpster. It's Miller time.'"

And my personal favorite: “Cocaine is God's way of saying you're making too much money.”
