Wow. Nick Carter is revealing all of his darkest secrets in his memoir, "Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It."
And it's scary.
"Family legend has it that when I was two years old, I crawled into one of the Yankee Rebel’s (the strip club his parents owned) liquor storage rooms where I was caught drinking for the first time,” he writes. “My parents always laughed at that. I laughed too, for a while, and then I didn’t laugh at it any more.”
He writes that his parents owning such a toxic place opened the door to addiction in his life, that he was practically "programmed" to drink.
“I began drinking heavily in my teens and then moved on to drugs at eighteen or nineteen, starting with marijuana and moving up to cocaine, Ecstasy, and prescription painkillers among other substances... Kevin [Richardson] and the other BSB members saw me drinking and getting into trouble and all they could do was shake their heads... They told me that I had the potential to be a better person and make more of my talents. They knew I had a good heart and soul and wasn’t using my head. The guys warned me many times that my partying was out of control and that I was headed for serious trouble.”
Nick's life reall spiraled out of control, and even after arrests and an attempt at going to rehab, things were not improving for the former pop-star. It wasn't until a few years ago that he decided to get his life on track.
“I’m not perfect now. I still slip up when it comes to drinking. But I’m alive and great things have happened for me in the last few years. I would have missed them. I’m glad I didn’t. Take care of yourself so you’ll be present for the great things in your life too."
His story is heartbreaking, and the book sounds like it would be hard to read because of the painful details. Check out Radar Online's Story for a more in-depth look at the memoir, and click the link at the beginning of this story to purchase the book on Amazon.
