Scott Stapp Reflects On When He Hit Rock Bottom
Stapp says: "That was the beginning. I went through phases after that when I didn't want to admit I was an addict or an alcoholic, I wanted to find excuses and all of these reasons why I didn't have to be different, and I could still drink with everybody else.
"Acceptance is key, so it took me probably until 2010 before I finally looked into the mirror and said, 'You're an alcoholic and a drug addict.' And it doesn't matter that it started out trying to self medicate because of major depression hitting. That's irrelevant. But in 2010, after white knuckling it and saying, 'I can stop when I want to,' I was trying to do the right thing but I wasn't in recovery. It didn't start until then." more on this story
