In a recent Facebook post, actor Ben Affleck admits that alcohol addiction is something he has been battling and continue to do so. He also said that the treatment he received is just one of the first steps towards recovery.
Ben Affleck, who is 44 years old, also said he wants to live his life to the fullest and wants to be the best father he can be. ” I want my children to know there’s no shame in getting help when you need it and I want to help every person who needs help but is afraid to make the first step” Ben Affleck said.
Ben Affleck also wanted to thank Jennifer Garner. Ben and Jennifer got married on June 29, 2005 and they have three children: Violet, 11 years old, Seraphina, 8 years old and Samuel, five years old.
However, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got separated in June of 2015, just one day after their 10th anniversary because of some rumors spread by the media according to which Ben Affleck had an affair with his children’s nanny. Most recently the media reported that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are now working on fixing their marriage and they stopped the divorce procedure.
