"I doubt she'll be like me. Touch wood, and follow that with a lot of love and a lot of luck, she won't go there or have to go there. 
If unfortunately that does happen, I'll know what to do. Which is make sure she's got the best drugs possible -- and take them with her.''

--Robbie Williams on taking drugs with his daughter if that's what his daughter wants to do.

Side note, Robbie Williams, if you're unfamiliar, is a super talented, critically-acclaimed British musician who's had a history of substance abuse issues that required rehab. 

Moving on? It's an interesting notion full of whimsy and good intentions, but you know what they say about the road to hell, don't you? Because it's that it's paved with good intentions. And while Robbie comes across as a concerned, loving parent, what happens after the drugs are all tried, even if they're good drugs? What if his daughter loves those good drugs so much that she just decides to keep doing them? Is Robbie just going to sit alongside his child and continue to do drugs with her 'til she finally dies from it? Because that's not responsible parenting. That's not using hindsight as an effective tool for helping to raise a child to do the right things. That's setting a child up to live the quip, "Misery loves company." 

No, in this case, an addictive personality should go or be sent to rehab, and not chill with her Dad Dukes while both of them self-destruct ... if, you know, it goes that way. Man. What a crazy world we live in sometimes, guys.
