Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood used his time on the Brendan O'Connor Show on RTÉ Radio One on Saturday to encourage people to look after their sobriety during the Covid-19 emergency.
"I take it one day at a time," the 72-year-old told the host. "And there are no downsides to my life since I've been in recovery and since I've been sober."
Wood urged listeners to "talk to people, pick up the phone if they're in any kind of quandary".
"Or if they're worried about 'What do I do next?', there's always people out there that can help," he continued.
"If I can do it, you can. I've been there and back and I've been through the mill and I have quite a colorful history with alcohol and drug abuse in the past.
"I use my artillery of things that I've learned and my recovery and the 12 Steps. Anyone who thinks they can drink their way through this or something [it's] not really the way. And, if they need help, there's plenty of people out there that can help, and some numbers I can give them too."
