Dax Shepard has revealed that his daughters knew when he was relapsing.
The 46-year-old actor, who stated earlier this year that he was back on Vicodin after a motorcycle crash following a sober motorcycle accident, learned how he discussed the issue with his and Kristen Bell’s children, Lincoln, eight and six -year-old Delta .
When he appeared on Chelsea Clinton’s ‘In Fact’ podcast, he said, ‘They knew when I was relapsing. We said,’ Well, dad was on these pills for his surgery and then dad was a bad boy and he caught to get his own pills. ‘
“Yeah, we’ll tell you the whole thing … you know Dad goes to an AA meeting every Tuesday and Thursday.”
And Dax noted that his kids were already very supportive of his fight.
He added, “One of the cuter moments was – I want to say my oldest daughter was three – when my daughters wanted to be with me 24 hours a day.
“She said, ‘Where are you going?’ I said, “I’m going to AA.” She said, “Why do you have to go?”
“I said, ‘Because I’m an alcoholic and if I don’t go there I’ll drink and then I’ll be a terrible father.’ And she said, “Can I go?”
“I said, ‘Well, no, you must be an alcoholic.’ And she says, “I’m going to be an alcoholic.” I said, “You could be one. The odds are not in your favor, but you are not there yet. “” “
However, the actor admitted that after his relapse it was difficult to return to his meetings, especially because he had “built that whole identity” in his head over his sobriety.
He explained, “I had to go to my Kings Meeting, which I’ve been going to for 16 years … It was horrible.
“Oddly enough, it was horrible that I had this whole identity built up in my head when I was 16 years old.
“I loved being 16 years old. I held onto it so much that I was really scared I wouldn’t have it.”
