10 Celebrities Talk About Their Sobriety
Tim McGraw’s role in “Country Strong” hits very close to him. In the movie, he plays the spouse of a an alcoholic, but in real life it was the other way around. “[My wife] Faith [Hill] has kept me alive,” he said. “I’d be dead. I would have partied too hard. I might have caught myself somewhere along the way and put the brakes on. I don’t know if I would have gone [to rehab], don’t think I could have been talked into that during those times.” The final straw that sent him into a life of sobriety? The fact that he couldn’t stop drunk texting Faith. “I only learned how to text because back when I was drinking, I would get in trouble when I would call my wife, and she would find out I was drinking,” he said. “And then I started slurring my texts, and I figured hell, I gotta quit drinking.” [Huffington Post]
