Tyler Posey is opening up about sobriety.
The 29-year-old Teen Wolf actor got candid during an interview on SiriusXM’s The Jason Ellis Show.
During the conversation, Tyler admitted that he went through a “rough patch.”
“I’m sober now. I’m 71 days sober. I don’t smoke weed. I don’t drink, I don’t drug, I don’t do anything…I was at a party the other night where they had a table of cocaine, just a table. And they had Holy water, which was shots with Molly in it, and mushroom chocolate. And I didn’t give a s–t at all,” he said.
“It was a sex party…I have been to other sex parties, one other one where…I was like, I wasn’t part of – I wasn’t part of the people who worked there, but I was…I was doing it. But this was when I was kind of abusing stuff and myself…but now I’m starting to get my s–t together and it feels really, really, really good,” he went on to say.
He also opened up about sexuality.
“I woke up one morning and I saw all this stuff on Instagram about these transsexual women who were being beaten and harassed, and there were a bunch of people that were filming the whole entire interaction and laughing at them. There were like a whole group of people and that pissed me off so much. And I was just kind of shedding light on that, because I didn’t hear about it. It was like a week — I was a week late on the whole entire thing, I think. So, I didn’t really know about it. And so I thought if I didn’t know, maybe other people didn’t know. So originally I was just shedding light on that, through whatever way that I could. And then, I was hit with wanting just to come out myself with that whole thing and be honest about it,” he said.
“I know there’s a lot of kids that look up to me and I just want to f–king get rid of that stigma of — you can be whoever you want to be, get with whoever you want to get with and it doesn’t affect you and it doesn’t affect them. And you know, the world’s f–king weird and it should be. And there’s too much stigmas on everything and sexuality, especially. And so, I don’t know, I really didn’t have a plan for saying that s–t. I just felt compelled.”
