“I’ve been actually clean and sober now over 20 months, no drinks, no flower, nothing and just kinda working on myself a lot,” he said.
“It started off like, I’m just gonna put this pen down, the vape, the drinks and just chill, and then it was a few months, and then it was six months, then it was a year, then it was now almost two years,” he went on to say, adding that he’s “so glad” he recognized bad habits early on.
“People around me [were] like, ‘You’re not a big drinker,’ and I said… ‘I’m concerned because I’m not someone that normally does that.’ And now at my age, [I’m] like, ‘Why am I doing that?’ I’m glad I caught that because if it were when my dear friend [Nick Cordero] was dying in a coma during the shutdown or when the sky was falling, it could have been [bad],” he admitted.
“Sitting around in my robe all day, hitting the vape or something like that — that’s not sexy in your 40s.”
