The PR machine is a'rollin'.
Using 'addiction' as the problem makes your client a "victim of a disease."
Look how Brett Favre and Rush Limbaugh bounced back after they went after their problems and had the support of their fans....They were not
'diseased', they were junkies.
(and yes, I know that technically a junkie is a heroin addict...just go with the thought rather than picking a catchword and beating it to death).
"I am a poor, helpless victim of this terrible disease. I'm a sick man and please feel sorry for me."
sounds a whole lot better in the media than,
"I finally got caught being an unfaithful dog and then I got beaten to a pulp by a girl with a nine iron."
One way you play on people's sympathy, the other you get hounded by the moral majority and character assassinated. With the sympathy angle you can
'crawl back from the depths of despair at the ravages of this dreadful affliction and try to put your life back together with the support of your
friends, family, and fans.'
I'd heard that Mrs. Woods did a real number on Tiger's face and the reason he's been out of the public eye is due to having some reconstructive
surgery and dentistry.
