Overcoming Addiction

On his Facebook account some years ago, he stated

"Over the last year or two, alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life. I regularly had several drinks at the end of most days. Sometimes more than several drinks".

He announced that he entered a rehab program to undertake “an alcohol-free lifestyle” in December 1999.

“I was still working effectively and competently, but I realized, over time, that being competent was not good enough. I was far from my best self. And the simple truth is that I owe my best self to my marriage, to my family, to my friends, and to my constituents.”

With his loving partner by his side, the TV star overcame his addictions and started a new beginning with his partner.
