DAX SHEPARD HAD A LONG STRUGGLE WITH ADDICTION
One of the toughest battles for Dax Shepard was overcoming addiction.
As reported by People, the actor found it really difficult to beat his drug addiction.
He opened up on his podcast about how despite having been sober for years, he ended up relapsing in 2012.
To be fair, Shepard was in a tough spot: His dad had been diagnosed with cancer,
and Shepard ended up hurting himself in a motorcycle crash.
The pain prompted Shepard to ask something to help him get through his bad days.
He got some Vicodin pills from his sponsor on the condition that he would visit a doctor.
However, at one point, Shepard found himself slipping when he took some of his dad’s painkillers.
Later, he would take painkillers as prescribed from his doctor, but he’d tweak the dosage and timing as desired.
He recounted, “Maybe I don’t want to take them at night because I can’t sleep when I take them, so when
I get my two at night I don’t actually eat them and I keep them for tomorrow morning so I can make it the dose I want to be.”
What was the turning point? In 2020, he went through both an ATV accident and
a second motorcycle accident and ended up buying pills on his own. ดูหนังออนไลน์
He decided to tell his wife about everything, even though he felt extremely guilty and found it difficult to confess.
