EXCLUSIVE: Sid Lucero on his drinking problem: ‘Recovery is a very, very long process’


031316-sid_main.jpgBalik-trabaho na ulit si Sid Lucero pagkatapos ng halos dalawang taong pagiging hindi active sa pag-arte dahil sa kung anu-anong bisyo lalo na ang pag-iinom.

“I’m very good, I think,” pagmamalaki agad ni Sid sa Push.com.ph nang makausap siya sa presscon ng The Millionaire’s Wife TV series ng GMA-7.

Sobrang matino na ako ngayon... sana. No, because recovery is a very, very long process. It’s true though. You never truly healed,” hirit pa ng aktor.

Ayon kay Sid, matagal daw talaga ang proseso ng pagpapagaling at recovery ng mga pinagdaanan niya.

“I think it’s a lifetime process that’s the problem. That’s what I learned, eh. It’s a disease basically and then, it takes an entire life to get through it and right now I think I’m okay,” sey pa niya.

Nagpa-rehab ba siya?

“No, wala,” sagot niya agad.

Pero tumigil na ba siya sa pag-iinom?

“Yeah, I can handle a couple of drinks every so often. Minsan apat. Hahaha. But after that I need to go home na, kailangan ng umuwi.

Dati kasi wala akong pakialam kung sobrang dami kung nainom. Hindi naman yung intake yung problema, eh. It’s what you become after mong uminom,” sambit pa niya.

Para kay Sid, second life ang pagkakaligtas niya sa sunog at pagkakaroon ulit ng career sa showbiz ngayong 2016.


“But I don’t know. It felt okay to loose worldly possession but it was basically the theatre room, computers, anything electronics. But the nice thing about it is that I got to spend time with my family.”

Mas natuto rin daw siyang  mag-appreciate ng mga bagay-bagay dahil sa nangyari.

“I got to appreciate the kind of support that I got from everybody...  I’m not angry at the world, I’m not angry at myself. It felt like I needed  to go through it, that’s how I felt,” he said.

Idinagdag din ng aktor na natakot siyang bumalik sa trabaho, pero na-overcome naman daw niya ito.

“Honestly, I was so scared to go to work,” pag-amin niya. “ I mean, yung first day ko sabi ko talaga baka mainip ako sa kotse. I realized anong problema ko ? Ba’t ako ganito. What was my problem before?

“I’m not going to say na ‘O, tapos na yan...’ Hindi natatapos yung battle, eh,” paliwanag pa ng magaling na aktor.
