As 2018 wraps up, Brad Pitt has found a profound reason to be thankful, and many can predict that it has nothing to do with Angelina Jolie.
For the past two years, Pitt has found himself in and out of court as he tries to spend more time with his children.
Even the judge handling the matter lashed out at Jolie for keeping the children from their father.
Despite all the drama, the famous actor is thrilled to be sober for the first time in a long time.
In a recent interview, Pitt said since ending his romance with Jolie and the help of health experts, he no longer drinks or does drugs.
The father of six had this to reveal: “Personally, I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff or something. And you realize that a lot of it is, um—cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I’m running from feelings.”
He continued to say that he has replaced his unhealthy passion for wine and vodka with cranberry juice and fizzy water.
Pitt confessed: “I’ve got the cleanest urinary tract in all of L.A. Having a drink could have been the easiest way for Brad to deal with some of the uglier things Angelina has been putting him through, but Brad has made good on his promise to himself and his kids to maintain his dedication to be a better, more sober father.”
A source spoke to Hollywood Life saying that Pitt is very proud of himself for winning the challenge of staying sober.
The family friend revealed: “Brad has been able to maintain his sobriety despite the enormous amount of stress and legal pressure put upon him by Angelina during their ongoing divorce war. During the most challenging time in Brad’s life, he is happy and proud that he has been able to maintain his good health and sobriety. Brad has persevered through these tough days with a lot of hard work and determination to better himself.”
The pal went on to reveal to the publication: “Brad has worked very hard to be nice, kind, patient and understanding with Angelina throughout this divorce process, and he wishes she could cut him some slack and do the same. In a weird way, he feels grateful to Angelina and like his sobriety might be the best thing to come from his divorce.”
Brad is slowly putting all of the drama behind him.
