‘True Blood’ Star Talks Addiction
Chris Bauer who stars in the hit series, ‘True Blood’ opens up about his decade long struggle with alcohol and substance abuse. In a recent magazine interview, Bauer says he had his first drink at age 14 and quickly developed a dangerous habit. He said one drink always turned into many more and before long he realized he had a serious problem. A few years ago, Bauer received a wakeup call but only after blacking out in front of his daughter and receiving an ultimatum to seek treatment from his wife of 17 years. At that moment, Bauer decided to seek help in becoming sober. “I got sober right after I shot the pilot for ‘True Blood’, said Bauer. Now after seven years, ‘True Blood’ is wrapping up this summer but Bauer is proud that he is still living a sober lifestyle.
