Gerard Bulter's drinking days are long gone but back then, he was on the road to destruction!

The actor recently opened up about his hardcore drinking in his younger years and how drinking nearly cost him everything.

Including his life!

Gerard states that he drank so much, it cost him his lawyer gig at 22. He also says he was on a "death wish" and "didn't care if he died in his sleep."

So what did he do? He quit drinking, moved to London and got his first acting job through an old gal pal. With no training in acting!

What an inspiration! Gerard talks about his life without the bottle:

One or two drinks was never enough for me. I was a foot-on-the-floor-all-the-way drinker, so it had to go. I don’t miss it. Now it’s as if I never had a drink in my life. At one point, I could never have conceived going out and not drinking but, as time goes on, you lose the urge and the insecurity that often makes people drink in the first place.

And he still has a way with the ladies without booze! He's shacked up with Jennifer Aniston, Ashley Greene and Brandi Glanville, who he "doesn't" know apparently!

We're proud of you, Gerard! Keep truckin' on the road of sobriety!
