He was an alcoholic and was married three times. I'll stand in line to take advice from that. That's first-hand experience from an individual.

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 16 November 1973) was a British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Born in Chislehurst, he moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York. Pursuing a career, he attended Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, where he received a master's degree in theology. Watts became an Episcopal priest then left the ministry in 1950 and moved to California, where he joined the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies.

Watts gained a large following in the San Francisco Bay Area while working as a volunteer programmer at KPFA, a Pacifica Radio station in Berkeley. Watts wrote more than 25 books and articles on subjects important to Eastern and Western religion, introducing the then-burgeoning youth culture to The Way of Zen (1957), one of the first bestselling books on Buddhism. In Psychotherapy East and West (1961), Watts proposed that Buddhism could be thought of as a form of psychotherapy and not a religion. He also explored human consciousness, in the essay "The New Alchemy" (1958), and in the book The Joyous Cosmology (1962).

Towards the end of his life, he divided his time between a houseboat in Sausalito and a cabin on Mount Tamalpais. His legacy has been kept alive by his son, Mark Watts, and many of his recorded talks and lectures are available on the Internet. According to the critic Erik Davis, his "writings and recorded talks still shimmer with a profound and galvanizing lucidity."[3]

Watts was a key figure in my development as a teenager, more deeply as an undergrad, and was an integral part of my training as a psychotherapist. His applications of Buddhist philosophy to current life events are very important and useful arrows to have in one's quiver.

As synchronicity would have it this just came in from NEJM. Mindfulness meditation is one of the great tools from the Buddhist tradition that is available and compatible to followers of all paths. It is simply for a short time quietly focusing only on the now. Nothing from yesterday or questions of what might have been. No worries about what the future may hold. One simply quietens the internal chatter and focuses on the breath. This NEJM piece speaks to its value to the clinician. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp1410397

Really, we all follow someone or something. You may or may not acknowledge it, but we all are followers. However, logic dictates that as these things or ideas that we follow often disagree or contradict each other, then we must be seekers of truth. What is truth? That is something that we all need to devote an open mind to, with the understanding that our notions and thoughts could be wrong. In all reality, finding out that you were wrong is the first step in understanding what is true.

That's all from me, not Alan Watts.
