AJ McLean it opens up for his struggle with addiction.
In a new interview People, the Backstreet Boys The star has discovered that it has gone over again in the past year.
"You know, it's interesting for sobriety with family and with children – you still have to set yourself up first, and that was a great fight for me," said a 40-year-old singer in an interview published on Wednesday. "Listen, I have no shame to say, I repeated again during the past year. It's no secret that this is a disease, and that it is a daily struggle."
While the artist said his children and his wife were "huge support", he admitted that it was difficult to put their welfare ahead of their own.
"Because in my opinion, that's what you need to do, you need to give birth to your family first," he said. "First I need to put my children in. But because I'm still very independent, I'm Mr. Pleaser – and I think that's a lot of that coming from the performer, and the desire to see the audience happy, and to see everything around me and I love the attention – I want to make sure everyone is cool. "
However, he knows that he does not care about his own health and can cause him to "lose in the sauce", which he admitted "happened to me many times".
According to the published publication, a member of the children's band went into rehab 2001, 2002 and 2011 due to depression and excessive alcohol consumption. Until he expects his battle with addiction to be almost complete, he is ready to do the job.
"One of the best things they told me, from my sponsor, from my friends, the only way is to end," he said. "And sometimes, you will only have the worst possible days. But if you surround yourself with a good support group, if you go to meetings, if you talk to other addicts … you have to do it in a lifestyle, you really do it."
