Aaron Sorkin, who’s creating buzz with his HBO show “The Newsroom,” takes on his druggy past in the upcoming Men’s Journal. When asked what advice he’d give his younger self, Sorkin responded, “I’d tell myself not to try drugs. Once you do that, you’re going to change the trajectory of your life in a terrible way.” The former addict and Oscar winner continues, “My big fear when I quit drugs was that I wouldn’t be able to write anymore. Because if you’re a writer and you’re on a roll — and I was on a roll when I was high — you don’t want to change anything about the way you work.” The “Social Network” scribe has been clean for 11 years. The issue comes out on July 13.
