Oscar De La Hoya checked himself into rehab for alcohol, cocaine, and infidelity. He was on a downward spiral and we're glad he had the courage to get help before he lost everything:
"There were drugs, my drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol. Cocaine was recent. The last 2 years, last 2-and-a-half years and I depended more on the alcohol than the cocaine."
De La Hoya says he's been sober for three months — but he's still undergoing treatment. He also says he's joined Alcoholics Anonymous.
Oscar also revealed that he cheated on his wife, explaining, "We are obviously not talking Tiger Woods here, but I was unfaithful."
Being unfaithful is being unfaithful. There really isn't varying degrees with it. You aren't more of a cheater if you sleep with 50 people instead of just one. Why? Because it doesn't change the fact that you cheated.
We have a hard time forgiving those who cheat, but the steps you've taken towards recovery are commendable. Everyone deserves a second chance.
