Cheyenne Jackson 'Fell Off The Wagon' After Decade Of Sobriety

Cheyenne Jackson is opening up about his sobriety.

This week the Call Me Kat star took to Instagram to share a very personal story with his followers. In the caption of a selfie, he admitted to relapsing after being sober almost 10 years:

“VULNERABLE is what I’m feeling today. After nearly a decade of sobriety I fell off the wagon. I’ve been carrying a lot of shame. Scared to share it. But I know it can help someone so here I go.”

Continuing, the 47-year-old father of two revealed he didn’t want to “disappoint” those who view him as a successful example of sobriety:

“I didn’t want to disappoint anyone who has looked up to me as a sober person so I’ve been just burying it away. I took my eye off the ball. I stopped doing what I needed to do to keep myself on the path of my personal integrity.”

The once self-proclaimed “high-functioning alcoholic” admitted even after all these years, he’s still a “work in progress” when it comes to his addiction:

“I could blame it on Covid. I could blame it on the state of the world. Mass shootings. A nation divided. The death of my co-star. But the truth is, I thought I had it all handled. I thought “I got this.” But I don’t. I am a work in progress. Always.”

The 30 Rock star went on to thank his support system as well as Jamie Lee Curtis in particular for being there to help him during his struggles:

“Thank you to my support system. Thank you to @jamieleecurtis and so many others who have been there for me. It means everything to me. If you are out there struggling, you are not alone and there is a solution. I love you.”

So sweet! It’s wonderful he’s got such great friends and family. Wrapping up his post, he left us with a positive note:

“And I love myself today and that feels really good to say. #progressnotperfection”

It’s great to hear the American Horror Story alum being optimistic and working toward getting better! Addiction is a lifelong struggle for most, and it takes a lot to admit fault and get the help you need. So proud of him!
