A week after being hospitalized following a night of binge-drinking, Charlie Sheen admits that he has "a lot of work to do" and likens himself to Errol Flynn, "who had to put down his sword on occasion."

In a statement to Us, Sheen writes:

"I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people. I want to say 'thank-you' to my fellow cast members, the crew of Two and a Half Men, and everyone at CBS and Warner Bros., especially Les Moonves and Bruce Rosenblum for their concern and support.
"To my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much. Like Errol Flynn, who had to put down his sword on occasion, I just want to say, 'thank-you'."

Why Errol Flynn? The swashbuckling actor -- notorious for his partying -- died at 50 in 1959 after an alleged week-long binge.

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Fire Department released the tape of the 911 call that led to Sheen's hospitalization last week:

Come to think of it, Gordon Gekko DID order him some steak tartare and he's still alive...

Errol Flynn died an ignoble death, in the company of 15-year-oldparamour Beverly Aadland, who'd been pimped out by her mother.
