Johnny Cash Quote
It was a tough fight, and nobody else can whip it. It's only been about 18 months ago that I quit pills. Eighteen months ago, I was walking death. I used to take up to 100 pills a day. I don't know why in the world they didn't kill me. Any doctor would tell you it would. I would play one against the other — pep pills to pep me up, tranquilizers to calm me down.
