We hear enough about drug and alcohol abusers in show business.  We see their failures on TMZ.com

The Teensavers team thinks it is time to highlight those tv, music, and movie stars who have given up the bottle and/or drugs.

We recently posted an article about Bradley Cooper, and just a few minutes ago, we posted an article regarding Neil Young’s newfound sobriety.

Now, I came across this tweet from Janine Turner, most famous from her work on Northern Exposure.

Today, she becomes the first of our spotlighted celebs in our new column “Stars of sobriety.”

Turner now has a radio show based out of Philadelphia. She is also outspoken political commentator. Today we now salute Turner, whose bio says she turned to hope and faith to triumph with her alcoholism two decades ago.

There are many reasons to like Bradley Cooper.

Teens and young adults think he is funny.

People Magazine and millions of women find him sexy.

We love that he is sober and speaking out about it to the Hollywood Reporter!

Cooper, the man who has made millions laugh as the hungover Phil in the Hangover, is opening up about how his life mirrored the movie.

He detailed one account from a party where he was banging his head on the concrete to show his toughness, but all that resulted was a trip to the hospital.

But that was 8-years ago, and he’s lived life without alcohol and drugs every since.

We need more people like Cooper to speak out about alcohol and drug use.

Some may see his a hypocrite for portraying a highly intoxicated character, but a role is a role and reality is reality.

Cooper doesn’t have to open up about his demons, or his self-destructing ways, but hopefully people will learn from his experiences.

In a time when stars show up busted for DUI or drug-related arrests or encounters routinely on TMZ.com, it’s refreshing to see that one of the hottest actors in Hollywood is handling his meteoric rise to stardom drug and alcohol free.
