We've always been a fan of Tim McGraw here, and that's doubly true now that he's confronted his demons and gotten his alcoholism under control. He has a beautiful wife and family, and he needed to do what needed to be done.
Ellen's show is mostly a lighthearted time, but we'd be remiss if we didn't applaud her for talking about serious thing when they need to talk about. That's why Tim opened up on her show about the positive change he made!
"I think it's a personal choice—when it gets to the point where you think it's affecting you adversely and it's affecting your relationships. It's time to make a change, and I thought it was.
"I also thought that my girls are getting older and I certainly wanted to have some good, solid ground to stand on when I started talking to them about their situations. I just felt like it was time to grow up a little bit for me. Things weren't going the way I wanted them to go."
We're glad you took the right steps, Tim!
Nothing is worth more than your life, and the happiness of your family and loved ones. Addiction is an every day struggle, and we hope you continue to find the courage within to keep it at bay!
