Full House star Dave Coulier is opening up to fans about his decision to stop drinking alcohol— a decision he made over two years ago. The actor and comedian got candid with fans after revealing that he hadn't had a drink since January 2020.

Of course, these vulnerable conversations are incredibly personal, and I know so many fans will appreciate Dave's honesty.

In an emotional Instagram post, Dave revealed to fans that he was "a drunk" before deciding to get sober.

"I was a drunk. Yes. An alcoholic," he wrote. "I loved booze, but it didn't love me back."

"I decided to make a decision for my own well-being, my family and for those around me who I love so dearly," the comedian said.

"The mental and physical withdrawal were big challenges for me, but I was supported by @melissacoulier and friends who had already made the journey."

The emotional Instagram post was accompanied by a bloody selfie of Dave.

"When I drank, I was the life of the party. I could make people laugh until they fell down. In this picture I was the one who fell down," he explained.

"Not because I was playing hockey or doing the things I love — like chopping wood or doing construction, golfing, fishing or flying airplanes."

"No one loved having 'beers with the boys' after playing hockey or a round of golf more than me."

He continued:

"I was always the 'final final' guy in the room. The 8 hours of drinking, laughter, and funny stupidity was followed by two days of feeling like a bowl of dog mess."

He went on to conclude with a message for hope for those in a similar position he once was.

"The sky is more blue, my heart is no longer closed, and I enjoy making people laugh until they fall down more than ever before."

"Thank you, Melissa, for being by my side. I love you," he concluded.

What an amazing accomplishment, Dave!
