Zac Efron Talks About His Demons And Says “It’s A Never-Ending Struggle”

Over the last few months Zac Efron has admitted that he went to rehab for drugs and alcohol.

But now the actor has admitted that e is struggling to cope with his demons and said that ‘it’s a never-ending struggles’.

Talking about his troubles the actor admitted:

“No matter who you are, you face challenges growing up. You go with your things, you learn, you have to. It’s impossible to lead an honest and fulfilling life as a man and not make mistakes and ‘fess up to them when you need to. But it’s especially humiliating when they happen to be so public and so scrutinized. When you have success young, and you accept the good things, you have to accept all of it. You have to accept the moments of glory but also a great responsibility. And that responsibility, to some degree, involves being a role model. At the same time, I’m a human being, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I’ve learned from each one.”

Zac then started to open up about his drinking and how it affected him:

“I was drinking a lot, way too much. It’s never one specific thing. I mean, you’re in your 20s, single, going through life in Hollywood, you know? Everything is thrown at you. I wouldn’t take anything back; I needed to learn everything I did. But it was an interesting journey, to say the least.”

Zac is one of the hardiest working actor sin Hollywood and it seems like he feels his work load didn’t help he addictions:

“There was something lacking, some sort of hole that I couldn’t really fill up. [Work] started to become the reason to go anywhere, the reason to talk to anybody. The phone calls I received were regarding [work], the ones I wanted to make were regarding scripts or to producers. Slowly but surely, I was no longer living in my house. It was just hotel to hotel. So my hobbies went out the window. I had done films back-to-back-to-back. I was burnt out. I was just so deep into my work, it was really the only thing I had. I clung to it in a way that became a little bit destructive.”

Zac is slowly getting better now that goodness and maybe he needs to cut down his work load.
