Ben Affleck has had a pretty hard go for the past few years. He has now checked himself in to rehab for the third time. This came after his soon to be ex-wife Jennifer put together an intervention. If you have seen the pictures of him lately he really did look terrible. His girl friend had called it off a handful of days ago and there wasn't much said about the situation. Now we know.

Ben decided to seek treatment for himself. He knew he couldn't stop hitting the bottle, so not only did others help him he knew he needed to do it. I know that is a hard thing to do, but he did the right thing. Jennifer and him have three kids together. In one statement from a "source" it said he knew he had to do it for them. Good for him and I know we all hope he does well.
