Nick Carter: I am drug free but alcohol addiction is ‘still a problem for me’
Nick Carter seemed to have it all as a member of the insanely popular boy band the Backstreet Boys in the 90s. But now, the 33-year-old singer is opening up about the behind-the-scenes struggles he faced, battling drug addictions during the height of his fame. Carter spoke to FOX411 about his memoir, “Facing the Music and Living to Talk About it,” and he revealed to us that he is still struggling to stay clean.
FOX411: You really have done a lot of work on yourself.
Nick Carter: I’m 33. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. But I’m getting some things right. I’m still trying to evolve, to learn more.
FOX411: How long have you been sober?
Carter: This is the thing: I am completely 100 percent drug free. I have, on occasion, been having drinks. The thing about it is, I still realize that it’s an issue, and it’s still a problem for me. It’s something that’s not easy. I still have to go to therapy. I still have to get to the bottom of the reason why I have resorted to alcohol.
I’ll go for a couple of months without a drink, and then I’ll drink. But for the most part it’s a struggle and I’m winning the battle and trying to understand what causes someone to fall back on alcohol, something that’s been in my life for a very long time.
Backstreet Boy Nick Carter was once known for being the baby of the boy band. With his blonde hair and blue eyes, he appeared to have it made at a young age. But fame got the better of him and a life of singing pop songs for young girls turned into a life with a dysfunctional family, getting in with a dangerous crowd, partying and substance abuse. Now at age 33, Nick Carter has turned his life around and wants to share his experience with his fan through his new self-help book, Facing The Music And Living To Tell About It. Real Style spoke with Nick Carter while he prepared to head out with the Backstreet Boys on a 20th anniversary tour about why he wrote the book and who he hopes it reaches.
Real Style: How has the response been to the book so far?
Nick Carter: Surprisingly, people are liking it. I say that because I am a little insecure over the fact that I wrote so much personal stuff exposing myself in a way. That’s the thing though; the vulnerability that I am embracing is therapeutic for me and healing me in a lot of ways. It’s really cool that a lot of the fans are coming up to tell me their stories and that they enjoy it and that they are proud of how open that I am.
