Now apparently he is very badly addicted to cigarettes and is smoking up to 60 per day. From The National Enquirer:
The troubled 32-year-old actor is smoking an astonishing 60 cigarettes a day and putting his life at risk of deadly lung cancer!
“Mac has swapped out one deadly habit for another,” declared a concerned pal. “It’s a nightmare!”
Last August, The ENQUIRER revealed that the former child star was a heroin addict who also abused painkillers. Now, he’s said to be off heroin and trying to clean up his act, but he’s tragically relying on another life-threatening crutch.
“He’s put his nicotine addiction into overdrive,” revealed another friend. “Almost every time I see him, he has a cigarette dangling from his lips and is puffing furiously.”
His brand of choice is Marlboro.
I don’t smoke cigarettes, so to me, 60 a day sounds like a lot. Like an insane amount. But is this somewhat reasonable for someone addicted to smoking? I Googled and found that Marlboro cigarettes come in 20 or 25 per pack. So I guess, if this is true, he’s smoking around 3 packs a day. Is that…normal? I honestly have no idea.
But let’s get really weird. Apparently, Pete Doherty and Macaulay Culkin are now roommates. Um, what? So does that mean they’re living in London or NYC or F-cking Crazy Pants Nation? According to Now Magazine, it’s Paris.
Yeah, this seems like a great idea. I can picture it:
Macaulay Culkin: Pete, did you buy food?
Pete Doherty: No.
Macaulay Culkin: Okay. I’ll get groceries tomorrow.
