Wow. It must have been HARD for Nicholas Brendon to admit the truth.
The unfortunate admission comes on the heels of fan sightings of the actor drinking in public.
While the relapse is clearly upsetting, at least N.B. is being open and honest about his condition… it's more than we can say for some struggling people out there. It's also a distinct change from the 45-year-old's poor attitude about his drinking problem on the Dr. Phil show last year.
In Nicholas's brave admission, he explained:
"Recently, some people have gone to the media saying they saw me drinking at a convention. This is completely true. I was feeling down, went to the hotel bar, and ordered a few beers. I'm in the public eye, but I'm just like any person working the program."
How refreshing. It's also helpful for those with addiction to know that mistakes happen and even the best of us fall down from time to time.

Despite the upsetting news, Nick has a positive outlook on his future:
