WWE wrestler Jeff Hardy is struggling with addiction.
The 43-year-old says that since his early 20s, he’s been struggling with the disease of addiction. “I’ve had sober runs, doing good for a while, but then I’d always go back. Now I hope I’m done with that. As long as I stay on the straight and narrow, the sky is the limit.” Jeff Hardy’s battle with alcoholism has been a “rollercoaster ride”, but Jeff says he’s done with that.
Jeff Hardy’s RecoveryThe WWE made the decision to introduce Jeff Hardy’s struggle with addiction to his storyline. Jeff says, “For me, admitting on TV that I’m an alcoholic has been empowering. It helps me remind myself of how bad it can be if I go back to that way of life. I am blessed to do this, and I want to help people that have struggled like me. I hope I can be an example for people going through recovery.”
It is truly amazing to see that Jeff is open about his alcoholism struggles and his desire to help others. Recovery from alcoholism is possible and Jeff is proof of that. He says, “I need to do the right thing every day and stay in my recovery zone, living one day a time”.
