The star recently got candid about the dark time in his life during an interview with Howard Stern, saying he is no longer afraid to talk about what was troubling him at the time. "I really don't have anything to hide anymore," Stamos said of the DUI arrest which made national headlines. "My father passed away and I got divorced ... it sent me sort of down a wrong path," the star continued. Stamos went on to openly admit that he was losing himself in alcohol and medication that was making it hard to work, let alone get through the day. Stamos candidly told Stern: "I could stop [drinking] on a dime. I could stop. In the times that I went back, it just sort of deteriorated my life, and who I was, and my morals and my values. I lost myself, I lost my sense of discipline, which my dad taught me so well, and I just became someone – more and more I was just dipping into that dark place. It happened more and more and it just got darker and darker. It stunted my growth. Emotionally – maybe I would be married with kids right now." "I had a horrific DUI, which I am so embarrassed by," he continued. "I could have hurt somebody, it was really stupid and ignorant of me. And I hated myself for that. It was a bad, bad thing. So I said to myself, I have to stop this up and down, up and down, I have to. "I was on some medications, antidepressants and that damn Ambien, I'm so happy to be off that. Completely off. I don't take anything," he said. "My memory was starting to get really f---ed up too, from that. Difficult to memorize scripts, I couldn't remember names and places and things. And that was the hardest thing to kick, by the way. Booze, and whatever, that happened, but the Ambien was tough." The star has made an amazing recovery following his very public arrest, starring in the hit show Grandfathered, as well as Fuller House, which will begin streaming on Netflix Feb. 26.
