Actor John Stamos recalls being so depressed about getting a DUI in 2015 that he kept drinking.

“When I did get the DUI…I came home from the hospital that night, I sat down, I drank a bottle of wine just to forget what just happened,” the “Full House” actor said during a recent interview with People. “And I never sobered up.”

The 60-year-old said immediately after the incident, he had to go film “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.” Stamos said he kept drinking to numb the pain of what he was going through.

“When you sober up, you have to look at the ugly truth, so you keep drinking,” he told the outlet. “So I was kind of just loosely buzzed through the shooting of that movie.”

Stamos said those two incidents represent a rock bottom point in his life. “That was bottom,” he said during a recent appearance on the “Bialik Breakdown” podcast. “But I didn’t get it and I just numbed myself for a few weeks after that. And when I came home, my sisters were like, ‘Okay, it’s time to go, we found this place.’ And I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m ready.’”


“I hated it. I really hated the way I felt, hated disappointing people, hated myself, hated looking in the mirror going, ‘This is not who my parents raised. What am I doing? Who is this idiot?’ I would be so embarrassed,” he continued. “I had everything growing up. I had a beautiful childhood. I had no excuse to f*** my life up. And I did and it made me sick.”

Stamos entered a 30-day rehab in July 2015. He credits his family for helping him maintain sobriety, which he discussed in more detail in his memoir, “If You Would Have Told Me.”

“They have kept me on this path because going down the road of being sober and taking care of yourself, everybody tries,” the actor said in October, as The Daily Wire previously reported. “Everybody does it. You could get going for a little while. Then, it’s like, ‘I can drink again.’ So it’s staying on the path is what they mostly do for me.”
