Eminem (who once had a Vicodin pill tattooed on his arm and rapped "Last night I O.D.'d on rush, mushrooms and dust") has dispensed some invaluable advice to would-be substance-busers. "Never take Ecstasy, beer, Bacardi, weed, Pepto Bismol, Vivarin, Tums, Tagamet, Xanax, and Valium in the same day," he once advised. "It makes it difficult to sleep at night."
