Steven Tyler: “My Sobriety Cost Me Nothing Less Than Everything”
Steven Tyler told Dr. Oz the first time he got sober was in 1988 and he remained clean for 12 years before falling off the wagon. Most recently he has been sober for three years and says he feels great and is looking forward to what the future holds, especially as a father and grandfather. He says back when he and his band Aerosmith were trying to get noticed they sometimes performed three or four shows in a row, so he leaned on cocaine or alcohol to help him maintain such a rigorous schedule.
