We’ve had the pleasure of meeting him several times and he’s been kind, giving, and spoken to us as if he’s known us for years.
We couldn’t be more proud of him, as the actor announced that he is seven and a half years sober.
“12 and a half years ago I was in active addiction,” he wrote on Twitter, “Hurting myself and those around me who I loved the most. It got so bad that eventually I ended up in a hospital for mental health. I am now 7 1/2 years clean and sober.”
He continued, “I have made many mistakes in my life, but each day is a chance to start again. Atone for mistakes and grow. For anyone who wakes up thinking ‘oh god not again’ I promise you there’s a way. I’m so grateful to be where I am, I’m so grateful to be sober. I’m so grateful to be. Remember, we are all works in progress.”
We can’t say enough how proud we are of you and thank you for your honesty and openness.
