In his memoir, horror master Stephen King tells of a 1987 intervention by family and friends in which they dumped evidence of his addictions from the trash, including beer cans, cocaine, Xanax, Valium, NyQuil and marijuana, on the rug in front of him. King wrote that he sought help and quit all forms of drugs and alcohol and has remained sober since.
