Calling into the "Dan Patrick Show" on Monday morning, Charlie Sheen sounded rough – not surprising, given his tumultuous last month which culminated in a personalized rehab stint at home.
"I sound like Demi Moore in her 80s," Sheen, 45, joked with the radio host. "What's up with that?"
The actor, who began treatment last month after reported partying and a trip to the hospital for abdominal pain, stars in the popular CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men," which has gone on hiatus while he recovers. But the actor claims he's ready to return to work – though it seems his colleagues may not agree.
"I just figured I was supposed to go back to work because I'm ready," he said. "They said, 'You get ready (and) we'll get ready.' And I got ready."
"(But) they didn't think it was going to happen this fast," Sheen continued. "I heal really quickly, but I also unravel pretty quickly, so get me right now, guys. Get me right now!"
In fact, Sheen said that he's "100 percent ... peeing clean." He's not comfortable using the word "sober" to describe himself as he associates the word with Alcoholics Anonymous, a philosophy he doesn't support.
"I was sober for five years a long time ago and was just bored out of my tree," he said. "It's inauthentic; it's not who I am."
