WWE Star Eva Marie Reveals Struggle with Alcoholism

January 18, 2018 Updated: January 18, 2018

WWE star Eva Marie revealed in a personal essay that she is “an alcoholic,” saying that it’s harmed relationships and more.

“I’m an alcoholic. I have relapsed, destroyed relationships, hurt my family, and disappointed myself numerous times. I will be an alcoholic for the rest of my life,” she wrote, according to InStyle.

She realized that she had hit rock bottom when she served jail time before she got professional help.

“I served three months in jail for repeated DUIs. I didn’t have a license, I didn’t have a stable job, and I was living in an apartment that I could only afford due to a heavy discount my landlord offered me because a murder had taken place there between the previous tenants. That’s what my life looked like right before I started down my road to sobriety,” she wrote.

It was difficult to open up publicly about my Alcoholism and recovery, but I’m very happy I did. CLICK LINK IN BIO to read the entire article.?? – One thing I’ve realized over the years is that alcoholism affects an incredible amount of people, yet there is still a sense of embarrassment or shame when an alcoholic or family member of an alcoholic wants to talk about their disease. I used to be incredibly embarrassed, so much so that I avoided getting help because I felt like only “weak” people can’t handle something on their own and I was embarrassed that people would judge me and look at me negatively. I am so happy I no longer feel this way, and I want to encourage anyone who is struggling with addiction to take that first step of asking for help, it will literally save your life. – To those starting a program, stick with it, your life won't magically transform over night, there will be extreme highs and extreme lows, the chances are you will relapse at least once, but Don't quit, keep pushing forward no matter how hard it gets. I PROMISE you it's worth it in the end. #WeGotThisOneDayAtATime ????#GODISTHEGREATEST

Marie, 33, added that while he has been off the bottle for five years, her recovery is a daily process.

“I am still an alcoholic. This fairy tale life is always one drink away from shattering. That’s why I attend 6 a.m. AA meetings multiple times a week and do weekly step work with my sponsor,” wrote Marie.

On Instagram, she shared that she “used to be incredibly embarrassed, so much so that I avoided getting help because I felt like only ‘weak’ people can’t handle something on their own and I was embarrassed that people would judge me and look at me negatively. I am so happy I no longer feel this way, and I want to encourage anyone who is struggling with addiction to take that first step of asking for help, it will literally save your life.”

She left professional wrestling in 2017.
