17 Celebrities Who Lead Sober Lives Post-Rehab

Alec Baldwin detailed his miserable battle with drug addiction and alcoholism in an interview with "Good Morning America" anchor George Stephanopolous.

"I got sober when I was just about to turn 27," Baldwin said. "And those two years that I lived in that white hot period, as a daily drug abuser, as a daily drinker ... to my misery, boy, that was a tough time."

Baldwin said that during the period of time when he was an addict and a user, "there was really, really a lot of pain in there, a lot of pain."

His interview is a timely one, as the actor's memoir "Nevertheless" will be released on April 4 and details his struggles with addiction and recovery.

After asked by Stephanopoulos what the result would have been had Baldwin not gotten sober over thirty years ago, Baldwin said: "I think I would've got it eventually, but I'm glad I got it when I did 'cause not many people get sober when they're young."

Baldwin's full interview with Stephanopoulos airs Monday on ABC.
