Tom Sizemore Says He's Quit Drugs for Good

Tom Sizemore says he's done with drugs.

"I'm not trading my whole life for some powder," the 45-year-old actor told The Bakersfield Californian in a jailhouse interview published Friday.

"God's trying to tell me he doesn't want me using drugs because every time I use them I get caught," Sizemore said.

Sizemore is serving time in Kern County for violating probation in a drug case. He was arrested in a Bakersfield hotel in May for methamphetamine found in his car. He will be released next month.

The actor was charged with seven drug-related counts, but pleaded no contest to a charge of transporting drugs for personal use. He was sentenced last Wednesday to treatment in a drug therapy program.

Sizemore said he understands the punishment could have been worse.

"I got another chance," he said. "Some people might think I don't deserve one, but I'm glad the judge thought so and I mean to make the most of it."

Sizemore's films include "Saving Private Ryan" and "Black Hawk Down."
