In a new interview with Good Morning America that is going to air on April 3, Alec Baldwin will open up about his past struggles with alcohol and drug abuse. When he was young, the famous actor had problems with both drugs and alcohol, and even experienced an overdose once.
In a preview clip of the interview, Alec is seen saying that he got sober just when he about to turn 27. “And those two years that I lived in that white, hot period, as a daily drug abuser, as a daily drinker … to my misery, boy, that was a tough time,” the actor says in the interview.
The reason why Alec decided to open up about his past life is because he will be releasing a memoir on April 4. What will shock most fans to find out is that Baldwin actually overdosed once.
“I think I was one of the people who were lucky that it stuck, and therefore if I didn’t get it then, I think I would’ve got it eventually. I know that at that time, what I describe — overdosing on drugs — which I’ve kept very private for years and years. But I’m glad I got it when I did ’cause not many people get sober when they’re young,” mentioned the famous actor in the interview.
