After long hours spent with William Shatner, filming the original Star Trek series,
Leonard Nimoy found solace and comfort in a bottle.
Not just one bottle either. Many, many, many bottles of wine, beer, and hard alcohol
would be consumed by Nimoy during the years the show was filmed.
"I started drinking regularly, ritually, during the second or third year of our series."
said Nimoy. "The minute we finished the last shot I would have a drink. Then it became a
series of drinks, little by little. Before I knew it I was drinking more and more because
my addictive personality was taking over."
