Eva Marie says she is an alcoholic, spent time in jail for DUIs



Former WWE Superstar was recently interviewed by InStyle and it’s a pretty candid interview. She admits to being an alcoholic and that admission is what saved her life.

She said, “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.” She added that she has been sober for almost five years. She said that being sober doesn’t mean that she is “cured” and alcoholism is black and white with no shades of gray. She added, “I am an alcoholic. And admitting that truth saved my life.”

She said that her mind and her life was a mess and she hit rock bottom when she served three months in jail for repeated DUIs. This happened shortly before she joined WWE.

She wrote the following on Instagram:

“One thing I’ve realized over the years is that alcoholism affects an incredible amount of people, yet there is still a sense of embarrassment or shame when an alcoholic or family member of an alcoholic wants to talk about their disease. I used to be incredibly embarrassed, so much so that I avoided getting help because I felt like only “weak” people can’t handle something on their own and I was embarrassed that people would judge me and look at me negatively.
I am so happy I no longer feel this way, and I want to encourage anyone who is struggling with addiction to take that first step of asking for help, it will literally save your life.

To those starting a program, stick with it, your life won’t magically transform over night, there will be extreme highs and extreme lows, the chances are you will relapse at least once, but Don’t quit, keep pushing forward no matter how hard it gets. I PROMISE you it’s worth it in the end.
