He said: “There were times when I was with my son and I was wondering how long I would have to spend before I could go off and get p***ed.”
That’s so sad. Alcoholism is such a sickness though. He said he’d been drinking since he was 14.
“I’d been drinking since I was 14. I was pretty sick. At the beginning of recovery I found it really hard.”
“For me there was no choice. It was tough but I was dying. I was struggling not to have a complete meltdown. I was just gone. I’m glad I’m out of that cycle, I’m very lucky.”
He says that now he’s bored in bars and, “Now two hours in the pub, then I get bored. I was at that party for long enough.”
I’m so glad he’s “better” now. I’m sure his girlfriend is as well. It’s good he got help before his kids got too big. That way he can actually enjoy their childhoods.
