"I have a very addictive personality. One of them was alcohol. I was hitting the bottle hard. It runs in my family. So that was one thing I had to cut out, alcohol."
Sean continued: "The next thing was cannabis. You know I'm an actor, I've always had a puff here and there.
He further explained: "So there's a few things I had to change to get past the first stages of depression. Three main things for me.
"You think it helps me create a character but actually it just makes you dopey as hell, so I had to quit the cannabis."
"And third and most importantly, I apologise because my mum might see this, but porn. I had to quit watching porn. It's for the devil.
"It ruins relationships. Those three things set me on a clear path."

Once my whole world was fragmented due to depression I realised a lot of things had crept into my being that did not support my dream. I take full responsibility for my addictions and now I’m back in control. It sounds obvious but NO BOOZE, NO DRUGS & NO PORN. All these changes gave my body and brain the time to actually deal with my problems rather than trying to numb out the pain which actually in the long run makes you so much worse. Hope this helps. See your reality for what it is and make the changes for your future. To infinity and beyond 💯❤️
