The Hills' Jason Wahler is lightyears away from his old seaside bad boy ways!
The newlywed has not only transformed physically, but emotionally as well since his rebellious teen years.
While Jason refuses to blame the mega-successful show for his demons, he will admit that the overnight fame and all access pass to guilty pleasures only made his mental instability swell up — so much so that he tried to commit suicide!!!
In an uber candid piece, Jason revealed:
"I almost look like a different person. My entire outward appearance has changed — I now take pride in how I look, and live a healthy lifestyle that is reflected in my physicality. I knew that Laguna and The Hills weren't the source of my addiction, but the overnight success, fame and cash ignited my addiction much quicker. I was so uncomfortable in my own skin that I contemplated suicide a number of times, and even attempted it once. I took 10 times more antabuse than I was supposed to in an effort to take my own life, but was saved after being rushed to the hospital and receiving treatment for my overdose."
We knew Jason was troubled, but we had no clue he felt so low he tried to kill himself!
With 4 years clean as well as the help of Dr. Drew Pinksy and Alcoholics Anonymous, Jason FINALLY got the help he needed and made the lifestyle changes necessary to save his life.
We certainly can do without another another tragic overdose story.
His new wifey is VERY lucky she gets to spend her life with such a strong and brave dude!
