The country singer reveals his dark past, saying that had it not been for his supportive wife, Faith Hill, he wouldn’t have known where he would’ve ended up.
“When your wife tells you it’s gone too far, that’s a big wake-up call,” he says. “That, and realizing you’re gonna lose everything you have. Not monetarily, not career-wise, but family-wise.”
McGraw, who has been making headlines in the tabloids for cheating allegations, was also recently believed to have relapsed – as one magazine claimed.
According to one insider, Tim’s alcohol abuse had returned and it was drifting him and Faith apart. Neither of the two ever commented on the situation giving people the idea that the rumors may have been true.
So it seems kind of ironic that he’s talking about having given up his drug and alcohol addiction in this mag — perhaps he’s trying to tell us something?
Either he then went on to say: “It got to the point where my kids were getting older, and it was way past the point that they noticed it. And I noticed that they noticed. That’s enough to straighten you out.”
“I drank too much. I partied too much. And did other things too much. Chemically. No needles or that kind of stuff, but… use your imagination. It becomes a habit. Up until seven years ago, there were not a lot of shows that I didn’t have something in my system.”
Gotta appreciate a fella who can come out and admit his wrongdoings and talk out publicly about it seeing that he’s a public a figure and it could help someone else who may look up to him.
I do wonder about these recent allegations about a relapse though.
