Josh Peck has opened up on his 14-year sobriety journey that changed his life forever.
Josh Peck credits his 14-year sobriety journey for shaping his life – ‘It’s really the foundation of my life’
The actor had extensive substance abuse issues marked by alcohol and drugs, which led to him entering rehab in 2008. This resulted in Peck losing an incredible 128 pounds. However, the euphoria brought on by the weight loss led him to develop a drug and alcohol problem.
But with the support of his mother and his wife (Paige O’Brien) by his side, Josh has managed to turn his troubles around for the better. In his comments he said: “I’m fortunate to have found recovery through a 12-step program nearly 14 years ago, and it’s something I still do regularly to this day.
“It gives me a lot of structure in my life. It really is the foundation of my life and all these wonderful things have been built on it.” But that wasn’t the only thing that kept his life in one place.
He’s already a father to his three-year-old son Max. Not only that, but he’s expecting his second child with Paige, which has given the Peck family much to look forward to. And since Peck was raised by his single mother, he had a hard time approaching fatherhood with confidence.
But just like his drug problems, Josh was able to overcome them. His following comments Approved So much: “Hopefully, having a father in so many ways would have given me some structure or guidance on being a father.
“But luckily I’ve had enough apostles in my life, my father-in-law that I really look up to.” It’s great to see that Josh has come a long way and hopefully Paige’s pregnancy goes smoothly for him.
And that would round out more happy memories for the star. So there you have it folks. What did you think? Do let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
