He said:

“Yeah, I mean, I don’t know if I thought about it as much as other people did, on my behalf, just worried about me. Because I started off just like a night out here and there. But at my worst it was every single night it was, oh, we just have a few drinks after the show, and then as well as a day off, we’ve got to lay off a few drinks. But for me, it was just really how it was dealing with a lot of my emotional baggage. I guess my mother’s passing was the biggest one of all, but also being fired from my dream job, I was dealing with feelings of ‘was I not good enough?’ and just multiple things. It was all bottled up inside. I talked about it in the book, how important it is to get that out and if you hold it inside, eventually you’re going to explode and self-destructive behavior doesn’t just affect you.”

He said that it affects the loves ones and his actions did affect his close ones around him.

He said:

“It affects the ones you love and people around you and I was really hurting people around me with my behavior and you’d never know if you watched me on a show and saw how I was doing at the time, you would think, ‘Drew’s got it all together. He’s doing fantastic. He doesn’t need WWE. He’s the biggest superstar in the world right now.’ But behind closed doors, I was definitely not healthy, not in a good place.”
