• Former WWE Star Comments On Being An Alcoholic & Spending 3 Months In Jail For Repeated DUIs

Former WWE Star Eva Marie recently wrote a blog about being an alcoholic for InStyle. Below is the part where she talked about having repeated DUIs and spending time in Jail:

“I’m an alcoholic. I have relapsed, destroyed relationships, hurt my family, and disappointed myself numerous times. I will be an alcoholic for the rest of my life.

The fact that I have been sober for almost five years doesn’t mean that I am ‘cured,’ it doesn’t mean that I had a drinking phase in my 20s, and it doesn’t mean that I can have a few drinks now and again or just drink in moderation.

There are no shades of gray when it comes to alcoholism—it’s black and white. Either I am an alcoholic or I am not. Working a program doesn’t mean my past magically disappears and everything is fine. Unfortunately, nothing of note in life is that simple or easy.

Yet the road to my recovery did start with a very simple admission: I am an alcoholic. And admitting that truth saved my life.

Before I started working my 12-step program, my mind was a mess, my life was a mess, and I’d hit rock bottom. I served three months in jail for repeated DUIs.

I didn’t have a license, I didn’t have a stable job, and I was living in an apartment that I could only afford due to a heavy discount my landlord offered me because a murder had taken place there between the previous tenants.

That’s what my life looked like right before I started down my road to sobriety.”
