Alec Baldwin, 66, REVEALS he was addicted to cocaine and would snort the drug ‘all day long’


Alec Baldwin recently spoke about his issues with drug and alcohol addiction after celebrating 39 years sober.

Baldwin’s Addiction to Cocaine

In his candid interview, he compared his cocaine addiction to drinking coffee admitting he snorted the drug ‘all day long’ for two years.

The 30 Rock star said this during an appearance on the Our Way with Paul Anka and Skip Bronson podcast.

He admitted he had a ‘white-hot problem every day for two years’ and joked he snorted a line of powder long enough to stretch from the Earth to Saturn and back again.

‘I mean, cocaine was like coffee back then. Everybody was doing it all day long.’

How He Gave Up Drugs

Alec eventually gave up drugs, but then he levelled up with his drinking habit.

Then He Was Addicted to Drinking

He explained: ‘Because I stopped doing drugs, my drinking increased, which they tell you is going to happen. And that did happen. I just started drinking.’

The actor ended up having to give up booze too and he admitted it’s the one thing he misses. He added: ‘I don’t miss drugs at all, but I do miss drinking. I like to drink.’

When Alex Got Sober

Alec continued: ‘I don’t discuss this a lot. I discuss it every now and then when it makes sense.’

‘I’m 39 years sober. I got sober Feb. 23, 1985.’

How His Addiction Started

His issues with cocaine started after he moved from New York to Los Angeles in 1983 and the habit soon took over his life.

When asked what he does now instead of drinking, Alec revealed he likes to meditate but it’s tricky to find peace and quiet at home with the seven kids he shares with wife Hilaria.

He said: ‘I do try to meditate. [But] meditating with seven children is like trying to play ping pong on the deck of an aircraft carrier. It’s a real pain in the ass, man.’
