Ronnie Wood Supports Recovering Addicts In Self-Isolation
Rolling Stones musician Ronnie Wood is sharing advice and support for other recovering addicts who can’t get to meetings due to restrictions on gatherings during the COVID-19 crisis.
"I'm Ronnie and I'm an addict," the 72-year-old, who has been sober since 2010, said in the first video message he shared on Twitter.
"To help me get through every day, from time to time, I'l share with you, if I may, little readings that I have from my books."
Wood read a passage about hope from Keep It Simple: Daily Meditations for Twelve-Step Beginnings and Renewal. “I hope this helps you get through another day,” he said.
Last week, the Stones postponed their 15-city North American tour, which was scheduled to stop in Vancouver on May 12, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To those in AA, NA and other recovery support groups, who won’t be able to go to meetings during Coronavirus Lockdown, I hope these readings help you as much as they help me 🙏 pic.twitter.com/OGT8J0ZimK— Ronnie Wood (@ronniewood) March 24, 2020

Our 25th annual Gutsy Walk will be held on Sunday, June 7, 2020 at over 60 locations across Canada. Every walk is fun-filled, family-friendly, and non-competitive. Route lengths vary, but are typically five kilometers. Participants can walk any distance they’re comfortable with. Join a Walk near you! This is Canada’s largest community event for Crohn’s and colitis. Since 1996, Canadians from coast to coast have stepped out – rain or shine – in support of our cause. The Gutsy Walk has raised over $45 million for research and programs, all thanks to participants, donors, and sponsors who are driven to make a difference.
